The Jardin des Plantes

We're starting our tour of Nantes' Parks and Gardens with the Jardin des Plantes, located right next to the train station!

This is the must-see botanical garden in Nantes!
This three-century-old garden took almost half a century to take shape.

Offering an escapist experience, the park takes visitors on a journey through its tropical greenhouses, play areas, a refreshing paddling pool, the elegant Orangery and its tea room, and various art installations.

Each element contributes to an immersive and diverse experience!

Parc de la Beaujoire

Next, head for the Parc de la Beaujoire, a very large 34-hectare park that stands out for its singularity. As well as its imposing fountain, the park is well worth a visit to admire its impressive collection of 25,000 rosebushes carefully arranged in 31 separate squares.

To the north of the park, 12 hectares are given over to floral arrangements in which perennials and shrubs coexist harmoniously, creating a captivating visual spectacle.

Among the treasures to be discovered in this park, the Iris garden is particularly outstanding during its flowering season, while the Heather garden hosts a floral competition between 65 different species, each with its own palette of flowers and foliage.

The perennial garden adds an extra dimension to the experience, making the park a place of exceptional natural diversity.
