Beautiful park, well worth a visit. We hired some bikes from just outside the gate and had a lovely ride right around the whole park.

One of the best city parks I have been to. Parc de la Tete d'Or is completely man made, in the sense that it was planned and created-the park opened in 1857 The park is in many ways like a smaller version of Central Park, on Manhattan.

Every city needs a huge park. And Parc de la Tete d'Or is that for Lyon. It's got everything you could ever want in a city park. There are tons of walking paths, benches in the shade, a lake, a zoo, a rose garden, a botanical garden, and even children's puppet theater.

Lovely park with a zoo and a lake with paddle boats. Great spot for a lunchtime picnic. Easy to get to by bus or metro.

This park is just an adventure - both for children and adults, for exercise and relaxation, for walks, picknicks, for reading a book or just sitting and watching people ... or for watching the animals in the zoo section. EXCELLENT!

Bring your wine, baguette, cheese, patê and a blanket and enjoy the free garden and zoo. If you don't have a blanket there are many benches. The zoo was small but had giraffes, leopards, lions and lots of monkeys. Hard to believe it was free.

Perfect destination to run to and have a run/stroll around on a sunny Sunday morning! Bring some change to have a coffee after whilst enjoying the sunshine in the parc or along the Rhone.
