Parc de Sceaux, Sceaux

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.

  • It's surprising and beautiful. The aisles are wide, trees and shrubs are pruned with art. The prospects are varied. Beautiful walks are to be expected in any season.

  • A chateau that is worth knowing, is located near Paris (RER B-Park of Sceaux). Beautiful garden all around.

  • It's a very nice place where many fairways allow to take a beautiful walk. There seems, not to miss the week of the cherry blossom!

  • Very good place. Especially if you want to see cherry blossom (sakura) there are around 15 -20 trees and many people standing to take pictures. Park is very nice too with a lake and place to relax. You can very easily spend whole day and refresh yourself. If possible pack a lunch and spend a day relaxing.
  • You can spend a whole day here! Absolutely beautiful park. I recommend you bring your own picnic because the small "cafés" are very crowded.
  • Probably the best Parc in France. Like an intimate version of Versailles but quieter. Fountains, a canal, fantastic gardens and woodland walks, a beautiful Chateau and orangerie. Everything beautifully maintained . And... you can walk on the grass!
  • I cannot get enough of this place, it's one of the best. You should definitely visit it, especially in the fall (October, November), pure magic.
  • Really nice and huge park very close to Paris. Very well maintained. It's very diverse as well! A lot of things to see... in some parts very natural, nearby the palace - very formal. There were sculptures, even an outdoor photo exposition, a lot of people jogging, having picnics etc.
