Nature / Park
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.

  • 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 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.
  • 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
