THE LANDSCAPED PARK

the Louvre-Lens was designed by its architects as a museum in a park, a building that is constantly interacting with the surrounding greenery. The forecourt, wild grassland, groves, play areas, woodland, ponds and even vegetable gardens are all places of contemplation, conviviality and wellbeing.

This splendid park covering 20 hectares is a self-contained masterpiece. Designed by the landscape architect Catherine Mosbach, who sought to evoke the site’s mining past while respecting the local ecosystem, it provides glimpses of the legendary Stade Bollaert football stadium, the two twin slag heaps of Loos-en-Gohelle, as well as the former mining towns.

A veritable bridge between museum and town, the park is frequented by walkers, picnicking families, visitors to the museum, runners taking part in the famous Route du Louvre, locals attending sporting and cultural events in the “Parc en Fête” summer festival and nature lovers.

Numerous festive events can be organised in this natural space with its refined design.
