It is a must-see during spring - especially now (mid-April), when there are blossoming trees! Park is quite big, the blossoming trees are on the right side of the park, looking from the Sceaux entrance (where the chateaux is). There are actually two parts of blossoming trees gardens - first "square" (before the center of the canals) are the famous... More

Highly recommended for a picnic under the beautiful cherry blossoms in the month of March. It's an amazing garden with lakes and green areas for EVERYONE! Not far from Paris, this garden is nicely kept and a great place to stroll quietly and breathe in fresh air.

A 22 minute ride on the RER (line B4) from Chatalet Les Halles brings you to Parc de Sceaux station which is only a 10 minute walk to the beautiful grounds of the Chateau de Sceaux. On the far side of the Grand Canal sit a couple of orchards of cherry blossom trees - one with pink blossom and the... More

A perfect short get away from Paris. The park was, in part, designed by Andre La Notre and is spectacularly beautiful. A grove of a hundred plus blooming cherry trees was breathtakingly lovely and what a place to spread out under the blossoms on the grass (a rare privilege in Paris) to take a nap and more than a few...

For anyone looking to explore new places outside of Paris, here is one I highly recommend. The parc is beautiful with lovely vistas and fountains. Lots of families strolling on weekends, even in winter when the weather is nice. The chateau holds interesting exhibits. And you are only a few stops from Paris on the RER B.

If you want to spend a few hours contemplating a beautiful garden, lakes and woods and breathe fresh air, the Parc de Sceux is the perfect place. It is approximately 20km from Paris. You can easily go with the RER (stations Sceaux or Parc de Sceaux). A must-see!

In September 2013, I visited this park. It was the summer of Le Notre. The designer behind the gardens of Versailles, the Tuileries, and various other locations in the ile-de-France area. I decided I'd try to see some of these other locations on the brochure I had picked up while in Paris. Sceaux is very peaceful with beautiful gardens to... More

The transition from the relatively busy city of Antony to the park is ensured by quiet alleys with very beautiful houses, most of them built at the beginning of the 20th century and either well maintained or refurbished in the style. When you enter the park is like teleporting yourself in the middle of the nature - all you see... More

The park is magnificent. Unfortunately, facilities for food, drinks and restrooms are not fit to accomodating the public. Parking is very difficult during the week-ends.

Parc de Sceaux is a worth a visit anytime of year. Whether for a stroll, to lie on the grass, to admire the Sakura trees in spring or to go running or exercising, all are enjoyable.
