  • After a visit to the historic centre of Rennes, we picked up the Green after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. What a pretty setting! beautiful trees, flowers everywhere, animals and playgrounds where my son even at age 9 was able to find games to its size. Do if one needs to move away from the Center and 2 world not shops

  • A must with its rose garden in particular. But also the French garden. Ideal to rest after a day of sightseeing.

  • Best Park in town! Huge and very pretty. Only bad point is a lot of people don't respect the ban of alcohol in the park so they drink beers and smoke on the grass... Not a very good example for kids...
  • The rose garden is wonderful. I wish I could spend there a whole day
  • The major and presumably most beautiful park at Rennes. Always nice to return and take a breath!
  • Very beautiful. A perfect place for a picnic.
  • Crazy beautiful place! I can only imagine how good it would look in the spring.. Will visit again soon.
