is developing, maintaining and running six open and recreational areas
permanently open to public and easily accessible by public transit: Park Hubert Dubedout
(70.3 ha on forested hillside), the Bois français
(75 ha of natural spaces around four lakes welcoming many activities), Park of Ile d'Amour
(27 ha in the floodplain of Isère river offering large open grasslands), Park Ovalie
(6.4 ha of friendliness spaces around a fishing lake), the Bois des Vouillants
(474 ha of forest on Vercors’ slopes) and the Franges vertes of Seyssins
(10 ha between city and nature nearby sport and cultural facilities).
Those spaces are occupying 593 hectares
of great ecological and landscape interest. Their development is a major issue in overall objectives of the agglomeration’s planning scheme. Among mainlines of "Plan Vert Métropolitain
", the first point is dedicated to this desire of "offering natural and recreational areas to city dwellers."
These spaces are now preserved, managed wisely and are arranged to be suitable for sports and outdoor activities. They are also convenient for environmental education for schools and for the general public.
