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.

The park is a nice jewel in the city, carefully maintained, with a beautiful Japanese style garden and, on the other side of the lake, a zoo that children and grown ups alike can enjoy for free. Next door is the Museum of Contemporary Art, with a nice café overlooking the park

Very pleasant park in the middle of Lyon. On the surface it looks like it could do with a facelift, but is nevertheless very pleasant to walk around. The main attraction is the pretty good zoo , entrance to which is free. It all felt very French and well worth visiting for a walk .

A wonderful walk in an enchanted green area. The small lake is wonderful and it traces an angle of heaven inside the city.

If you are in Lyon and the weather is nice, you should really consider spending that they in Parc de la Tete d'or.
