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.

    We only stayed one day in Rennes, which roughly two hours in this park is large enough, it is divided into several areas. We could see her divine Rosary, his waterfall and its cage with birds unfortunately, the cave was closed

    I'm torn by the world. Torn apart by my suffering. Soft music and painful suffering of the bitter life leaks. Deep soul in the dark of the city. Cascade! A time to live and relive. Uncertain existence. Uncertainties of laughter. And yet this feeling always reborn despite suffering. Our laughter is always uncertain; Permanent tears. Mind to be. Spirit of live. Just to be a soul crying in front of the green. Declare victory in all the tears of the life of this beautiful nature. Dark existence! A life. Life! and yet fight in order to be reborn. In this place; I love you! The lungs of my city. Oh I love you!

    Very watchable beautifully landscaped park in the Centre of Rennes. A peaceful, green oasis in the middle of the city. Many shady places under large old trees. With children seeing the birdcage.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...
