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.

  • To go regularly after lunch for a digestive walk between colleagues, or even for a picnic, or the weekend, I saw the Park on every angle and in all seasons. This is an extremely nice, well-maintained, vast and varied, place where one comes across walkers, sportsmen or fishing at the level of the grand canal, and where we can also isolate themselves. The kiosk near the castle is nice to have a coffee or other. Do not miss the Japanese cherry blossoms in April, a marvel.
