This part of the Friche is divided into plots providing space for experiments in allotments, ornamental gardens and all sorts of types of gardening that reflect the urban surroundings. You can find a Japanese style rockery there, plots for teaching gardening, different styles of planting and a rock garden.
Whether it's the local residents, pupils from Gilles Vigneault school or the College Belle de Mai, La Ruche Verte charity or even students from the National Landscaping School – all the gardeners work at the Friche la Belle de Mai on the lots to make this former industrial site greener.
Good to know
The gardens are closed to the public, but you can make the most of them if you bump into a gardener and he opens up the gate for you. You can of course walk freely along the public paths around the gardens.
Please respect the gardeners and their hard work and do not damage or take any plants.
