Parc François Mitterand

Urbicus: The rehabilitation of the ‘park de la prefecture’ is an opportunity to improve its opening towards surrounding neighbourhoods. Designed in 1974 by Alain Provost, the park prefecture has retained its ‘green lung’ qualities but is isolated at present. Its rehabilitation will eventually open it towards surrounding facilities, shops and neighbourhoods. New axes of composition and new management methods reorganise usage. The riverbanks are planted with wetland vegetation and lagoon zones are created to allow phytoremediation of the park’s water.
