(4.8/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A must visit in Rennes, especially since the cascades have (finally) been released water. Spaces very varied, beautiful flowerbeds, a rose garden surrounding a botanical garden, exhibitions, coffee... all the more reason to go there!

  • It's a very beautiful park. The gardens are perfect designed, colourful and beautiful. Definitely a place to come to do some jogging, read a book, have a picnic or simply enjoy the day. There's a "terrasse" were you can have a great coffee if it is raining or an ice cream
  • Very nice grounds to walk around in. Loverly plants, birds and water features.
  • This is a wonderful park to visit and take a nice walk around if you are visiting Rennes. If you are a runner, this is a good park to run around in, but you would have to keep going around and around to get some mileage. I came here one morning to do some speed drills. Otherwise this is a great park for a Sunday afternoon stroll. Don't forget to bring your camera with you.
  • Clean calm park with French and English park models, botanical garden.
  • Excellent parc to relax for some hours or spent the lunch break. Also quite a lot of cultural activities.
