Brotteaux, Lyon

Brotteaux Square

The Q-Park Brotteaux facility is located in the 6th arrondissement of Lyon, the old district. It is a multifunctional parking facility serving a wide range of customers for shops, famous restaurants (Paul Bocuse and Georges Blanc), nightclubs, offices, historical monuments, Art Deco buildings and 18th century residential apartments.

Square - car free

Previous to the Q-Park Brotteaux construction the square was always crowded with cars since the old Haussmann buildings had no underground parking facility. Today, the square is enlarged, revitalized and redesigned. A garden was created fully dedicated to pedestrians and improving the accessibility to surrouding restaurants and shops.
