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.

  • Two large Carrés with cherry trees there there: when the trees in bloom is there one know the other pink. Many Japanese go there thinking of Kyoto. The Park is partly French classic, in part, it's an English garden. You must enter the lawn, which is important with young children! And if you have a little more time, visit the Castle!

  • Nice Park for the family walk or go jogging. Several routes are possible with the turn of by (4.5 km) or along the basins.

  • Nice even by strong heat: a lot of shadow... and place even if there is world! A staple of the South of Paris.

  • 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.
  • A beautiful parc on a sunny day. Truly worth seeing. Great for leisure walks, picnics, playing field games in groups or jogging.
  • 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.
  • Very nicely kept park, great place for piqe-nique or romantic walks, how ever bit oldschool, missing entertainment for youngsters or chilling areas in case of rain.
  • 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.
