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 Reviews & Ratings
Nice place to enjoy beautie of green areas... " Which I recommend to much more improved". Very nice bird house with collection of different birds :)
Very well maintained, landscaped, spectacular. The bird house and the children's play area is amazing. I had a great time with my 1 year old.
Park in the centre of town where you can enjoy the vegetation and the fresh and calm atmosphere. I recommend the visit. You have public wc as well, but the best option is to use the ones in the upper entrance which are cleaned automatically after each use. If you are brave enough you can venture into the lower entrance toilets.
An oasis gem in the middle of a city, well recommended. Allow an afternoon to enjoy all that is on offer.
Wonderful gardens. Incredibly well maintained. They even have a robotic lawnmower!!!
