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.

In the 17th century, Sceaux was the place where Jean-Baptiste Colbert, Minister of Finance to King Louis XIV, had a palace surrounded by a huge park designed by landscape architect André Le Nôtre. The chateau was demolished in 1803 and replaced, in 1860, by a much smaller mansion that is still there today. Only some elements from the 17th century... More

I used to work for a big French pharmaceutical company whose HQ is 10 mins away. I would always try and stop close by as this is a very cool place to go running. Lots of paths and a very relaxing place to visit. It's located in a very quaint part of Paris and well worth a visit.

Very quiet, beautiful and easy day trip from Paris. Even if you wanted to just go for a couple of hours, it's a quiet oasis not far from the city. The castle is nothing special, but the gardens are simply gorgeous. There's a snack shop at the park, but it's better if you bring your own sack lunch.

Very nice parc, a peacefull place in the middle of a large city near Paris, nice for jogging or just sit under the sun on the grass.

What an idyllic park and chateau just outside of Paris. Stunning setting. Perfect for an afternoon walk, picnic, jog. No cycling. Wonderful water features. Great, peaceful alternative to Versailles or Vaux le Vicomte (closer to the city). Very easy to get to on RER @20 minutes fro St. Michel. Chateau was rebuilt in the 19th century in the Louis XIII...
