Parc de Sceaux, Sceaux

(4.8/5 based on 480 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Nice park to go with children since it's big and quite empty. If you re looking for some green space and silence this is also a good spot. I've seen some runners enjoying it also. And there is an old historical buding where you can see some exhibition also.
  • If I need to describe this place with one word; serenity would be the best definition... Easily accessible with public transportation. Peaceful and wonderful gardens.
  • Probably more fun than the nearby sous-prefecture, but also probably ill-equipped to handle paperwork.
  • A place to enjoy nature and human art of arranging nature. Take the RER B from Paris and there you are in 20 minutes!
  • One of the best Parcs around Paris. Beautiful views and plenty of space.
