Visit of the Parc & Ferme de la Chantrerie | Nant
In all seasons, take advantage of the Parc de la Chantrerie and its educational farm to learn more about the environment of Nantes
A park in the north of Nantes
The Parc de la Chantrerie belonged to the Drouin family before the Nantes City Council acquired it in 1972. It was the landscape designer Dominique Noisette who designed the park on half of the estate of more than 35 hectares. The other half is home to the National Veterinary School.
The left bank of the Erdre is therefore home to this public park, which contains a wide variety of trees:
- Plane trees,
- Spruce trees,
- Chestnut trees several hundred years old,
- Purple beeches,
- and more...
Visit the Chantrerie farm
One of the first educational farms was conceived and designed in the Parc de la Chantrerie in Nantes. Right in the city centre, you can admire sheep, ducks and also bees.
Workshops are regularly organised for the city's schoolchildren to help them discover life on the farm, animal husbandry and the cultivation of the vegetable garden. Outside of school hours, parents and children can use the premises at set times.
Transmission and respect for the environment are important values that the farmer-animator wishes to teach.
From the beginning of April until the end of September, the Rendez-vous à la ferme (farm meetings) allow you to take part in free activities and ask all your questions to the farmer-animator.
