Parks and gardens

Parc de la Beaujoire

A splash of colour at the edge of the water
At the meeting point between a rocky plateau and the Bretonnière valley, the Beaujoire floral park offers beautiful views over the Erdre. The Paul Plantiveau collection of roses is the park's main attraction. This landscaped area combines perennial plants with around 20,000 roses that have been selected first and foremost for their fragrance. This fragrance is celebrated during the Biennale internationale de la rose parfumée (the Biennial International Perfumed Rose show) which is held here in June every two years.
The floral park is also home to the national Magnolia reference collection which is managed by the Conservatoire français de Collections Végétales Spécialisées (French Conservatory for Specialist Plant Collections - CCVS).
The remains of the old La Richardière manor house and its farm, can be found in the park, as well as some small local quarries. Today, these quarries are used as a backdrop for collections of irises, heather and perennial plants.
Every 5 years, the neighbouring exhibition centre and the floral park attract nearly 400,000 visitors during the Nantes Floralies festival, one of the very first national floral events.
