Ranked "garden prestige type 1" by the city of Rennes, Parc du Thabor is a public park on more than 10 hectares (24 acres) of land with a mix of French gardens, an English garden, and a large botanical garden. Its name refers to Mount Tabor, the mountain overlooking the Sea of ??Galilee in Israel. The monks of Saint-Melaine Abbey started their vegetable gardens here in the 18th century, and that tradition of growing botanicals has persisted since then.

  • Beautiful park with a lot to see. The park has a mix of formal borders and arboretum. There is a bandstand with regular shows over the summer. A Japanese style pagoda birdhouse has cockatiels and lots of other birds while a farmyard area has chickens. Lots of interesting sculptures are dotted around the gardens. There is also a vegetable patch and rose and dahlia show beds.
  • Beautiful park on the edge of the city. You can spend a short time to walk through or stop a while and enjoy the ambiance. We found plenty of seating available to enjoy our packed lunch in park after having enjoyed walking between the vast array of flora. If you in Rennes put it on your list to visit.
