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.

  • This beautiful park in the city center of Rennes allows a change of scenery and a nice bowl of air and nature! The flowers are beautiful! Nice to read at the edge of fountains! And new games for kids are very nice! Have a look just for a ballad or a whole day!

  • Worth a detour if in the area Nice relaxed, well kept park with beautiful flowers and garden space. There is also a small aviary and large children's playground. I wouldn't say it was worth visiting Rennes just to come here - but well worth a detour if in the area. The adjacent Church of Saint Melanie is also worth a detour if in the vicinity.
  • Lovely place all year round, but reaches its peak in the summer months. Great to spend some relaxing moments in the nature🌸🌺🌻🌹so many pretty flowers. Well taken care off, it comes with facilities for kids as well.
  • Best place. So restful and calm. Spent most of my high school lunch break there. Best time of my life.
  • Excellent and beautiful park. Great for everybody: individuals, couples or families. Picnics allowed, good space for jogging and yoga. Kids will love the playground.
  • Really beautiful gardens and park in the heart of a really beautiful town. I visit every time I'm in Rennes and it is always a pleasure.
