Parks and gardens

Parc de la Gaudinière

The park’s château proudly dominates the northern entrance to Nantes. It’s lit up at night-time and you can see it as you enter the city. It originally belonged to ship-owners, and is home to many varieties of indigenous hardwood. One hundred year old chestnut trees and oaks grow alongside exotic species planted in the 19th century, including sequoias, bald cypresses and palm trees.

Redesigned in the 1990s, in Gaudinière Park you can take a relaxing stroll through the mountains, although it’s only 40 metres above sea level! At the heart of the shaded valley, you’ll find an alpine rock garden. The thousands of narcissus, crocus or anemone bulbs which bloom from mid-February add a touch of spring colour. They are now the park's signature flowers. The sunny lawns, play areas and waterfowl make it the ideal place for both the young and old alike to relax.
