Parc du Thabor, Rennes

(4.8/5 based on 1,400+ 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 wonderful family outing in a sumptuous park. All kind of varieties of plants and trees was discovered, everything is laid out so that you can take advantage of the fountains with benches and chairs. You even the opportunity to picnic, tables are available. ++++

  • Each time, we discover the delight of a patch of green in the city of Rennes. We'd be working especially on sunny days. Find a rose garden of fine workmanship and a corner where children will burst while you can enjoy a well deserved siesta...

  • It's spring! Do not leave Rennes bypassing Tabor Park, its flowered lawns, these trees, its aviary, its splendid rose garden... Special to walk, rest, or even meditation... Yes, it's beautiful!

  • Crazy beautiful place! I can only imagine how good it would look in the spring.. Will visit again soon.
  • Beautiful place with a lot of places to sit and relax (if the Bretagne's weather allow)
  • 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 park. Not huge, but has a surprising variety inside it (waterwall, birdcage, chickens...)
  • Just visit this awesome place and you will not regret!
