“outstanding park and gardens”
Review of Parc du Thabor

Parc du Thabor
Ranked #1 of 92 things to do in Rennes
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 November 2017

The park is encompasses over 26 acres and includes an aviary, performance spaces, walking/running paths, formal gardens, recreational fields, a nicely-equipped children's playpark, greenhouses and specimen garden/nursery, and a seasonal restaurant. There are maps distributed and throughout the park, and plenty of benches for when you need a rest. Be aware that lawns are marked as to whether a particular area is to be walked on or not; look for those signs before you tread. If you enter the park through the main entrance, be sure to make it over to the "alternative" entrance so that you can see the marvelous fountains.

This place is really great. I recommend to visit it during the flourished periods of the year.
A lot of flowers everywhere, beautiful trees and a perfect gardening management. If you like the loneliness, better to visit it during the week. During a sunny week end, it could be a bit crowdy.

We only came here to kill time while we waited for our hotel room; however it's well worth a special visit. Well laid out, and with a host of things to see, and do.An outstanding place in an otherwise tedious urban location..

An interesting variety of trees from large sequoias to Ginko Biloba and a huge rose and dahlia garden section.
