Walk in the arboretum of Chèvreloup

The arboretum of Chèvreloup is a park where many species of trees grow, it is located next to the Château de Versailles.

L'arboretum de Chèvreloup is a park where you can find a very large number of different tree species. In this very big park you are not bothered by the crowd because the park is paying which cools down a lot the ardors (4 euros). It is not free on the first Sunday of the month. All the walk is signposted, several more or less long routes are proposed from 1h to 2h30. You can picnic but there are not many tables in the shade. Bicycles are allowed, but not animals. If you want to learn or if you are passionate about trees you will love the arboretum of Chèvreloup. When the trees are dressed in their autumn colors, the site becomes even more beautiful.

Très bien, aux porte de Paris, même si c'est payant, ça vaut vraiment le déplacement ! J'y suis allé plusieurs fois.

At the foot of each tree you can find the name of the trees and their characteristics. All this remains very technical. For enthusiasts only.

There are many trees but paradoxically there is little shade on the course. Be careful in the middle of summer.

You have to be careful, the entrance is not easy to find, there is just a small sign. The arboretum is located in front of the shopping center Parly 2. The arboretum is next to the park of the Château de Versailles.
