Parks and gardens of Paris-Saclay

You’ll never be too far from a haven of greenery, and a walk around these parks and gardens will provide you with a much-needed breath of fresh air.  Paris-Saclay is brimming with fantastic natural places. Parks are great places to come and relax, to enjoy a leisurely stroll or a picnic. Why not delve into a good book while the children are playing at one of the play areas. These parks, such as Georges Brassens park in Massy or the Parc des Templiers in Epinay-sur-Orge are often used as the venues for major events that are very popular with families. Go for a stroll around Launay botanical garden, bearing the ‘Remarkable Garden‘ label, and a real treasure of biodiversity.

Leave the city centre crowds behind you and lie down on the grass for an afternoon nap in the sun.
