Just a few minutes from the city centre, shady green spaces, tall trees and a pebble beach offer the perfect spot for fun in the water and relaxation. Walking trails wind their way through the expansive lawned areas, and the view of the Bernese Alps is simply marvellous.
The former Expo grounds known as Jeunes-Rives, which have scarcely changed since the national exhibition in 2002, are to be restored and the park expanded.
The restoration of Jeunes-Rives is a flagship project of the city of Neuchâtel. The authorities’ aim is to create a large park over 70,000 square metres that connects the lake with the heart of the city. A vast city beach, public facilities that are open all year round and a large playground are to offer visitors the utmost in quality of life. Cultural and sporting events are set to take place here.
Almost 20 years after the national exhibition Expo.02, this magical place is being reborn.
