The"La Haute-Île" is managed by the Cultural Heritage Office of the “Département de la Seine-Saint-Denis” in France. Two full time employees and five part time employees work in La Haute-Île. It is integrated in a 160,55 acres wide park, located at 15 kilometres east from Paris by the river Marne. La Haute-Île was officially founded in 2008 to improve the accessibility to the results of archaeological research and raise awareness of the territory's cultural heritage.

These pathways through the park forest refer to the link between humans and their environment in Mesolithic times, introducing ancient crafts activities and workshops ( , , basketry, hide tanning, working techniques and so on) and hypothetical life scale reconstructions of settlements.
