This public park used to belong to Colbert, one of Louis XIV's main Ministers, and was designed by Andre Le Notre, the landscaper for the Versailles gardens. This explains why the Parc de Sceaux is a little like Versailles gardens in miniature. There are "jardins à la française", many fountains, and a large canal. Apart of course from strolling through the different areas, there are several events organised during the year, like chamber music concerts in the orange garden, or candle illuminations in the evening. Check their website. There is plenty of room but if you want some peace, avoid sunny and hot weekend afternoons. The easiest way to get there is with the train RER B from the center of Paris. But you can also bike there from the Montparnasse area over the "Coulée verte". It's quite an adventure !

Surprise your friends by visiting this out of town Paris destination. Sceaux is on the RER B going south east and means its only 20 minutes ish from ST Michel or 25 mins from Chatelet les halles. Sceax is pronouned Soooo or Sewww depending on your accent) Parc de Sceaux is a ten min walk through the centre of Sceaux village (suburban village) past the village church (worth a little look) and the market - there is also a good cafe bar at the market entrance and we had lunch there and can be recommended as good parisian fare, ! Entrance to the Park is just across the street - this is a wonderful park on the style of paris city centre parks but much bigger - the chateau lying at the centre of the park is just a backdrop really as this park is all about walking people watching and taking in the magnificent views over the countryside. Dont be tempted to take a good french coffee in the park cafe near the chateau wait until you have a good walk and then you will feel you deserve it ! Plenty of choice of walks start by just slowly walking around the laid out gardens in front of the chateau they are so photogenic. The venture further including down to the lake and fountains. If good weather certainly take a picnic there are also plenty of shaded spots if you are looking for shade if too sunny. Look out for exhibitions on in the orangerie too check the internet to see if any thing on before your visit. On exit look to see if can leave near the orangerie and walk back to the market and to the centre along the road at the edge of the park some amazing large houses to view on your way ! By the way if you are a chocolate fan you will love your visit to Sceaux as Sceaux is the home to the very first chocolate shop of the chocolatier and chocolate artist Patrick Roger - check out his shop on the main street of Sceaux - some very nice other shops in the village on your way back from the park including a bread/bun shop.

The nearest station is Parc Sceaux. A brisk walk of 10 min will take you to this huge park. Entry free. Very ideal to spend time with family/kids. We see many families with kids bring/pack their lunch...etc.., spend time here leisurely in this beautiful natural landscape. Drinking water facility is there. Beautiful fountain, vast garden. One shall easily reserve one full day to enjoy in this park.

I stayed nearby and a visit was recommended by my hotel. I walked over and entered by the traffic circle at the end of Avenue du Parc de Sceaux. At first I was shocked to find a fence covered in foliage, and the gate open only to find a small path also covered in foliage. I was by myself so I was a bit nervous but I did see other people entering before me so I continued on. Once you wind your way in this place is magnificent. There were all sorts of paths, some more manicured, some more natural and so much to see. They had an area with large horses, another with goats near the entrance I went in. Then you get in deeper and there is the water and the fountain and the statues. Just when you think it cannot get better you climb up to see the chateau and then your eyes get to take in the garden as well. Very lovely. There is a small truck/cafe with seating and umbrellas near the chateau. Staff was friendly and prices were reasonable. You could easily spend a day here.
