LA RIVE VERTE OF THE TOUQUES

This new green promenade is located on the Touques Peninsula. At the entrance of Deauville, facing the sea and along the Touques, this district benefits from an exceptional situation well known to its inhabitants, often overlooked by its visitors. Today landlocked and partly unexploited, the City of Deauville has launched a major urban reconstruction project there. The challenge is to transform this 6,3 hectare territory into a lively district all year round. To the east, a green shore developed with respect for the surrounding natural environments. It starts from the Pont des Belges and continues to the sea.

The landscaped park along the Touques is a strong element of the Presqu'île project. Completely recomposed, it stretches along the Touques and to its estuary. It is divided into two routes: a "large site" route opening the view of the Touques and the surrounding landscape and a discovery trail penetrating the plant environment thanks to a 99m long azobade boom. On the "large site" route, a selection of images of Deauville by the photographers invited each year to the Festival Planche (s) Contact.
The choice of plant environments and trees reinforces the natural environments of the peninsula and combines varieties adapted to the seaside environment to form micro-environments conducive to biodiversity.

PRACTICAL TIPS
The boom is built of wood and rests on steel posts. The wooden structure consists of a portico resting on the stakes. Decking and railing are in oak with beacon lighting on the floor. The set is completely accessible to disabled people.
