The recently renovated north esplanade was designed to facilitate movement and showcase the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie building. Linking metro, tramway and museum entrance and bordered by lawns, trees and benches, this is an entirely pedestrian area. It is an ideal atypical setting for sports events, trade fairs and stands, roadshows, activities, cocktail parties and seasonal markets...
