Set in a hundred hectares of fields in north-east Rennes, Gayeulles is currently the city?s largest park. Its many sport and leisure activities are cleverly incorporated into the natural landscape of wooded areas, lakes and clearings. The park originally opened in 1967 and was extended in 1978 with the addition of a series of parcels of land, making it possible to access Rennes forest directly without having to take the road.
