Parc Jean Baptiste Lebas

At the heart of Lille, opened in June 2006, the Jean-Baptiste Lebas Park, which occupies a space once used for illegal parking and marred by 11 lanes of traffic, is surrounded by the boulevard of the same name. Structured Boulevard alignments transformed the urban brown into tranquility. This sense of calm has been enhanced, establishing an environment that invites new leisure, relaxation and closer to this natural urban micro-ecosystem. The historic boulevard, being neglected and vacant, meant a great opportunity to tackle a restoration project by West 8.

This urban park emphasizes, the red perimeter fence four feet high that defines the space. It is an enclosure open, creative, modern and striking, a gate that integrates several elements – seat, and information panels hinged – and separates the hustle and bustle of a central location in the city of inner peace that brings this approach to urban nature .

Inside the campus, much of the three hectares of the park are covered with lawns flower beds containing small informal design covered with wildflowers. The remaining space is occupied by roads, squares, playgrounds for children.
