Petit Futé's opinion on THABOR PARK
Located at 56 meters high, the Parc du Thabor is the green jewel of Rennes. Originally, it is an orchard and a garden belonging to the monks of one of the oldest abbeys in Rennes. In the 19th century, Denis and Eugène Bühler laid it out as Parc du Thabor. French garden, picturesque garden with exotic species, botanical garden, English landscape garden, fountains, aviary, statues, greenhouses ... punctuate these 10 hectares in the heart of the city. The botanical garden offers 3,000 species as well as a huge rose garden (more than 980 varieties). The ponds and statues give it a singular character. Also to be discovered, the Orangery greenhouses designed in 1862 by Martenot and bombed in 1944. A unique blend of architecture, they now host exhibitions. In the spring, it is good to stop a few meters, the time to read a few pages of a good novel in the shade of the lime trees embalming the air with their subtle perfume. Benches and authorized lawns are thus invaded and time seems to stand still. The children enjoy the recently rebuilt wooden playground, the kiosk designed by Martenot, the orangery decorated with inscriptions to the glory of great botanists and some animals. A café-restaurant offers a beautiful terrace where you can laze around or eat lunch. This park is even classified as a prestigious garden. In the summer, come and enjoy free shows with "A Sunday at the Thabor" or the festivities called "Tombées de la Nuit" at the beginning of July.
