Parks and gardens

Parc de Procé

The park was created in the middle of the 19th century using plans designed by Monsieur D. Noisette. It surrounds a manor house dating from 1789. It was acquired by the city in 1912 when it was still in the open country, but it’s become an irreplaceable “green lung” for the western part of Nantes. Over the last 30 years, it’s been gradually restored and various collections have been assembled here such as rhododendrons, magnolias, fuchsias, dahlias and heather.
Among the many remarkable trees, the most noteworthy is the tulip tree, Liriodendron tulipifera which is one of the oldest in France. In addition, the park has acquired a number of large shrubs, such as camellias, magnolias and rhododendrons, which have been rescued from building sites and successfully transplanted.
On the Boulevard des Anglais side of the park, you’ll find a fountain in the middle of the ferns. It’s been decorated with statues from the fish market that used to be located at the end of Feydeau Island. At the top of the park, there are four statues symbolising Agriculture, Forestry, Botany and Sculpture that came from the Trocadéro palace in Paris. There is also an art gallery and café in the old manor, as well as a roundabout and a seesaw for children to play on.
