“I love it”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

We live near the parc (a 10 mins walk) and I love it, its very relaxing and huge, with lots of open and closed areas (with trees). Even on Sundays it doesnt feel crowdy, and there are always places to discover between the trees. Its perfect for jogginng and biking, and for families with kids. And when U you're there, you will forget that you are in a busy city like Paris.
Its near the RER B station of the same name "parc de sceaux".
We never visited the chateau, so I am not sure what to find inside, but there is a museum I think.

“Lovely gardens,opera and chateau...and the museum that is a corker”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

There are many reasons why we visit suburbs,parks being an object of discovery en-route. The significance of this area is simple ... its close to Paris-Orly airport,it has a railway station bearing same name and is home to the National Theatre des Gemeaux.
We came to sample the open-air opera at the end of June and to enjoy the Chateau de Sceaux,a grand country house which fields a museum of local history and contains one of the largest collection of the Painters of Paris group.
Lovely grounds to amble through,day-dream with long avenues ,stunning lakes and the beautiful chateau.

“Fantastic Park”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

This is a great day out for families, joggers, couples, cyclists and people with dogs so covers all bases. We visited with my brothers family including a 5 & 3 year old and both our dogs as they live about an hour away. The park is massive with lots of different routes to take, stunning views down the long avenues and lots of lakes as well as the chateau. There are some excellent areas set aside for dogs to be let off their leads with lots of logs for them to climb over and they stretch the whole way down the avenue. My niece and nephew had great fun climbing trees and running around the whole area. I would definitely recommend this park to everyone visiting this area.

“worth the visit”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

This is a truly wonderful park. In the spring or summer it is a delight to walk around but it is very big and when you think you have been all around it..you haven't. Don't miss this park.

“Good place”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

This is a big place to walk, calm and if you want you can go out to drink in a bar. Thats right. Walking drinking a fresh drink. If you want relax this is a choice to have not loose. You can reach it directly with the RER (train) and stop to Sceaux Park. If you do not like to walk do not use this RER stop. It isn't for you.
