There’s so much to discover at the Parc maritime! From the interpretation centre to the Forest of Rails and the Workshop, you’ll learn all about the history of the island’s inhabitants and shipyard workers. Visit an authentic 19th-century rowboat shop and become a shipwright for a day! Learn to make sailors’ knots like a bona fide sailor and be able to use them in everyday life. And be sure to enjoy our shaded picnic area, located right by the river and featuring a unique scenic view.
