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.

  • Very nice Park, well located in the Center, an escape from the sense, a nice place with an Aviary and animals, in summer a nice picnic is nice to make friends or lovers.

  • A nice Park in Rennes with gradients. The Aviary to see many different birds. The upper part offers a nice view, beautiful flowerbeds in front of the greenhouses. I find that between the two surviving pavilions and themselves very beautiful greenhouses do not fit. The rebuilt greenhouses are ugly concrete, it's a shame. Very nice light at sunset.

  • 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.
