AROUND THE MACHINES DE L’ÎLE
The Parc des Chantiers
Wrapped around the branches of the Loire, the Isle of Nantes has been for more than 10 years a changing territory as part of a major scale rehabilitation project.
As you cross the Loire River, you enter a territory dedicated to cultural industry: The Area of Creation of which the Shipyards park constitutes the largest public space. It brings together, over, 13 hectares, heritage (former shipbuilding yards), contemporary architecture and works of art (Estuaire Nantes <> Saint-Nazaire, The Machines de l’île...).
For any information about the Shipyards park
Reception at the Station Prouvé (next to the Ateliers et Chantiers de Nantes building)
Renovated on the occasion of Estuaire 2009, the Station Prouvé is the information centre of the Shipyards park, a resource centre for Estuaire Nantes <> Saint-Nazaire and a reception desk for Nantes Tourisme.
You will find all the information and documentation useful for a discovery of the territory.
