This park just a bit outside of Paris is known for cherry blossom viewing during Springtime, and it definitely won’t let you down. Located around a 40-mins train ride from center or Paris, Parc de Sceaux is a great place to spend half a day with your friends and family, or even alone. Especially during springtime, lots of people come to visit this park to view the magnificent cherry blossom.
Parc de Sceaux is absolutely wonderful! Not just the garden where there are full of cherry blossoms, but also the other areas of the park.
Parc de Sceaux is absolutely wonderful! Not just the garden where there are full of cherry blossoms, but also the other areas of the park – the Grand Canal, The castle – Château de Sceaux, the beautiful garden with tall green trees… It is very peaceful and you can enjoy the tranquility not too far from Paris, it is perfect for a day trip.
If you ask any Japanese living in Paris, they would probably tell you this is the best park to see cherry blossom. You can find lots of Japanese having a picnic here during the weekend. I think the park does feel like a park in Japan when the cherry trees are in blossom! You can see lots of Asian faces there to enjoy the cherry blossom, I guess we just love the flowers and nature!
The pink cherry blossom area is at Bosquet Nord. It’s a big field full of sakura trees on both sides of the road. You may find the white cherry blossom at Bosquet Sud, just 5 mins walk from Bosquet Nord.
Bring your picnic set to enjoy a wonderful day with friends and family. Lay down on the grass, play some music, card games, talk with your friend, read a book or two, eat some cheese with baguette, drink some wine… just enjoy your time in this beautiful nature! Be sure to get there early if you want to take nice photos with fewer crowds! It usually gets crowded after 10 am.
I had practiced how to do a split for 1 month more regularly and I am glad to have made it! I have always loved ballet – the poses and the shape and movement of the body is just so elegant! Unfortunately, I don’t actually know how to dance. I think I did remember something when I learned ballet for 1 year when I was six. 😉
When you get closer to the cherry trees, you can get a really nice portrait with a frame full of cherry blossom. There are lots of cherry tree so there are plenty of choices, pick one with lots of flowers close to the ground!

How to get to Parc de Sceaux?
Take the RER B from center Paris and get off at one of the two closest RER stations – La Croix-de-Berny or Parc de Sceaux. It takes around a 40-mins ride from the city of Paris. I usually got off at La Croix-de-Berny as it is a bit closer to the cherry blossom field.
