This is one of the best garden parks you’ll ever see. Built into Rennes’ highest hill, it’s not very large – only about ten hectares – but even so, it has a great wealth of plants. The park gets its name from Mt. Tabor in Israel, the place where Christians believe Jesus was transfigured. Exotic trees, fountains, circular pathways, rose gardens, French gardens, English gardens, greenhouses, aviaries, orangeries, a botanical garden, statues, mosaicultures, waterfalls, playgrounds… there is nothing that you could ask of a park, that this park doesn’t deliver.

People come here to picnic, jog, dog-walk or just to read. It’s worth coming to Rennes just for this garden.

Parc Du Thabor, Rennes Reviews - Write a Review

  • Worth a detour if in the area Nice relaxed, well kept park with beautiful flowers and garden space. There is also a small aviary and large children's playground. I wouldn't say it was worth visiting Rennes just to come here - but well worth a detour if in the area. The adjacent Church of Saint Melanie is also worth a detour if in the vicinity.

  • Lovely place all year round, but reaches its peak in the summer months. Great to spend some relaxing moments in the nature🌸🌺🌻🌹so many pretty flowers. Well taken care off, it comes with facilities for kids as well.

  • Best place. So restful and calm. Spent most of my high school lunch break there. Best time of my life.

  • Excellent and beautiful park. Great for everybody: individuals, couples or families. Picnics allowed, good space for jogging and yoga. Kids will love the playground.

  • Really beautiful gardens and park in the heart of a really beautiful town. I visit every time I'm in Rennes and it is always a pleasure.
