They are ideal places for a quiet family walk, to enjoy a picnic with friends, or to sit peacefully on a bench and relax.
With ancient trees, pretty flower beds, well-designed pathways, etc., the landscaping has been meticulously thought out to create a harmonious and outstanding natural effect. Oberthür Park in Rennes, Pré des Lavandières in Vitré, the Haute Bretagne Botanical Gardens near Fougères or the Ballue Gardens between Saint-Malo and Mont-Saint-Michel are absolutely magical places to visit!
It is not unusual to find majestic castles in these wooded parks.
