There is a zoo free and a great place for the whole family to visit including the park itself. You can take a pedlo on the lake in the middle or a little quad pedal car to travel a little faster around the park but really great fun

The park is beautiful, with lovely walking trails, a velodrome, and really phenomenal people watching. Grab a baguette, some cheese, and hang out in the shade with a good book in the afternoon.

When there is sunshine in Lyon it is the best place to rest and walk. Hire a bike and you wil have the chance to feal the fresh air on your face. See the botanic garden, and the zoo

I loved how calm and relaxing this place is! A beautiful park with a lovely lake, and even a free ZOO and botanic gardens. It's a must see in Lyon. Me and my partner also rented a paddle boat, and had a great time.

We originally only came for a short picknick on our way out of the city. But this place is just too wonderful - plan at least two hours for a visit: You will have "royal" gates at the entry of the park, many local families, a huge lake with boats to rent, a top botanical garden like in Europe's largest...

With cooler temps or during the evenings this is a nice park to meet friends or have a picnic. The park has ponds and gardens. Large paths for biking, rollerblading, and jogging have many visiting here for fitness. This is the main park for the city. The botanical gardens and Contemporary art museums are located here. A group meeting or... More

We got into the park on our second attempt. On day one it closed, just as we got to the gate, due to an emergency. By and large there is nothing to distinguish this park from any other. The one interesting part is where there are, what seems to be, thousands of turtles. They literally sleep on top of each... More
