Parks

Discover Rennes' green side: the Thabor is known as the 'prince of gardens', and was listed as one of France's most beautiful parks thanks to a rose garden blooming with over 2,000 varieties, its French-style gardens, its bandstand, incredible trees and English-style park. An ode to the art of gardening unrolling over 10 hectares. Other parks that merit a visit in Rennes include the sprawling 100-hectare Parc des Gayeulles with its farm animals, tree-top trail, ponds and paths. There's a lovely terrace where you can kick back and have lunch, as well as sports facilities like the ice-rink and pool. Green-fingered visitors will find themselves enthralled by the gardens at the Palais Saint-Georges, as well as other more intimate gardens or green spaces, such as the Parc des Tanneurs and Saint-Martin prairies. Soak up the fresh air and enjoy the luscious greenery in the Breton capital's gardens.
