#1 of 180 in Parks in Brittany
Ranked "garden prestige type 1" by the city of Rennes, Parc du Thabor is a public park on more than 10 hectares (24 acres) of land with a mix of French gardens, an English garden, and a large botanical garden. Its name refers to Mount Tabor, the mountain overlooking the Sea of ??Galilee in Israel. The monks of Saint-Melaine Abbey started their vegetable gardens here in the 18th century, and that tradition of growing botanicals has persisted since then.

  • .. .for jog or walk. The Park is well maintained and beautiful. Exceptional trees. A haven of peace, a little away from the city centre. Visit.

  • If you don't have the time (or the means of transport...) to go for a ride by the sea, a little walk in the Tabor Park is very nice. This Park has a large play area and Aviary with beautiful birds (amazing Rooster as parakeets). Demonstrations are occasionally organized (in hell... stage hard)

  • It's an excellent place to go for a walk or for some jogging. It's very big and the landscapes are very beautiful. You will find different gardens with ducks, plants, flowers and other birds. I also have a special place for children.
  • Lovely place for an arranged park. Well thought for the romantics (well it was the tendance at the period of it’s making). Very nice for the contemplatives mind sets! ;)
  • I love this place. My first date in this city is this park. i just got married and we took photos of us as a couple here. So many memories.
  • Awesome place to visit, you can have a nice time with the family, lots of activities for all, lot of things to do. You can go for a picknick with friends or family and just enjoy the day or go with your kids and enjoy the park and the playground. Definitely this is a place to visit and spend a whole day just wondering around and enjoying the view.
  • Lovely and tidy park. Brilliant for walks and appreciation of the lovely views.
