Anchoring itself at the foot of the public clock dating from the 1840s, the City of Vevey is reinventing the Place de l’Oriental, bringing the entrance to the historic center up to date. The ‘Place Orientale’ was strongly marked by the influence of the car at the crossroads to Collet and College Streets, next to the Bout du Monde terrace and the Oriental theater.
The public layout has been redesigned to bring back the atmosphere of a small neighborhood square and thus make the most of this reclaimed space. Three islands highlight the spaces where no cars can enter: at the foot of the clock, at the top of the crossroads, and a last, more generous one, which brings together shops, terraces and theaters by offering them a common, welcoming and convivial square. These three areas are an ideal place to replant trees and shrubs, providing pleasant shade in the summer, shimmering colors in the fall and, in general, more freshness for the neighborhood.
