Parc de Sceaux, Sceaux

(500+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
You will find Parc de Sceaux in front of the Château de Sceaux, a grand country house that now houses an art museum. Landscape architect André Le Nôtre, Louis XIV's chief gardener, laid out the park. It once included terraced gardens, canals, an orangery, and a stone cascade that flows into an octagonal basin. During the French Revolution, the state confiscated the property and sold it. The new owner destroyed the original château and grew crops in the famed ornamental gardens. During Napoleon's reign, different owners restored the park to its original glory and built a smaller home on the site. Today, the park is open to the public.

  • What a beautiful estate! It is free to visit the grounds. Going to see the cherry blossoms in April is a special treat. I would recommend taking a picnic basket and blanket for an especially relaxing afternoon.
  • One of the most beautiful parks surrounding Paris. Enjoyable both on foot and by cycling, I love having long walks here, especially in sunny spring and autumn days.
  • A beautiful parc on a sunny day. Truly worth seeing. Great for leisure walks, picnics, playing field games in groups or jogging.
  • An amazing place! We were here towards the end of March, the weather was sunny and despite the beauty and diversity of the place it was not too crowded. This is one of the top places for me to see around Paris.
  • Beautiful garden in all seasons. Quite big so if you want to see everything you shall need a few hours ! Do come there in April to see the cherry blossoms
