Parc Blandan

Parc Blandan, Lyon 7

The Parc Blandan is very popular with locals, who enjoy its 17 hectares of green spaces, comprising garden terraces, nature areas, sports fields, a skatepark and atypical playgrounds (such as the Vague des Remparts). This former military site has been converted into a green haven where the heritage, identity and legacy of the site are revealed and enhanced, with the added bonus of a 1,300m² skatepark.

The military heritage of the Parc Blandan dates back to the middle of the 19th century and comprises a network of fortifications and a dozen buildings, including the old barracks (which at 230 metres long was one of the longest masonry structures in Europe at the time of construction), and the gunpowder depot. Alongside the Château Lamotte, a listed monument, these heritage buildings form the esplanade.

This year the Festival of Lights is giving your children access to the playground of their dreams. Parc Sergent Blandan will be transformed into a funfair revisited in the age of new technology, where children and their parents can rekindle their fun-loving instincts and compete with each other to get the best score in the ten interactive light installations in this temporary play area.
