The parc de Sceaux is a place encouraging you to relax. In this spot filled with history, Île-de-France inhabitants and tourists looking for greenery flock to enjoy the beautiful landscapes surrounding the Château du Domaine de Sceaux (housing a museum), as well as neighboring buildings including stables, the Pavillon de Hanovre, the Pavillon de l’Aurore, and the Orangerie.
The Parc du Domaine de Sceaux covers 181 hectares of garden. It has been designed by the famous André Le Nôtre, aka King Louis XIV’s famed gardener also behind the gardens of the Palace of Versailles, Vaux-le-Vicomte and the Chantilly Estate.
Today, make the most of it to sit in the sun on the green hills, or meet in the privacy of the gardens of the different buildings, find shelter in the shadow of the Bois du Coteau de la Duchesse, and walk along the Grand Canal lined with poplars. This is the place to host family reunions, meet with your friends, or even to have a date, who all come to enjoy these magnificent landscapes this estate has for us.
Furthermore, once spring has sprung, take a walk by the northern thickets. This is where the Japanese cherry trees blossom and come and color the views with pink petals. A lovely show you do not want to miss, all the more so the Parc de Sceaux also celebrates Hanami, the yearly blossoming cherry tree festival.
