Lyon: the Cité des Halles, a temporary village for the summer!

by archyw

The Cité des Halles will move to the 7th arrondissement of Lyon this summer, from July 2 to October 1. A temporary village based on culture, relaxation and sport.

It’s a strange feeling. Feel lost in the middle of a huge vacant lot, without any building, for several hundred meters, in the heart of the Gerland district, in the 7th arrondissement of Lyon.

Part of this empty space will soon undergo a huge transformation. The wasteland of the former Nexans factories, rue Lortet, between avenue Jean-Jaurès and boulevard Yves-Farge, a stone’s throw from Place Jean-Macé, will become a temporary village during the summer, with 7,000 m² (including 3,200 m² covered) divided between relaxation, leisure, culture, sport … and a little work.

Concert, escape game, art gallery, petanque …

There will be a bar, which will be central, and also something to eat of course, with the possibility of enjoying the outdoors or staying under the covered part. We will also have an artistic program, with an urban art gallery and concerts, and finally relaxation areas, for young and old alike, with frescoes on the ground, basketball and pétanque courts, plus an escape game. We really wanted to recreate a village“, details Orbiane Wolff, co-founder of the Cité des Halles.

A shared vegetable garden will also be installed on the site, not far from a co-working space for the more serious.

The maximum capacity of the Cité des Halles has been set at 700 people.

Hours : July 2 to October 1, Wednesday to Friday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Access : membership of 2 €, online or on site (free for precarious people)
