Game and Nature Reserves
The Park de la Seille
Covering an area of 20 hectares, the urban park of Metz was inaugurated on May 31, 2002. This vast garden is, like Les Arènes, one of the first realizations of the Quartier de l’Amphithéâtre.
A link between the southern districts of the city and the historic center, it is organized around the Seille to offer the Messins a harmonious space, conducive to relaxation and cultural and sporting leisure.
The fruit of an ambitious project, the Parc de la Seille is one of the major contemporary French parks that take into account both the use of places and the great natural balances.
