Went on July 14th 2014 so was very busy but only added to the experience. Beautiful surroundings with plenty to do, felt like paradise at times! Staff throughout the premises are very helpful/friendly and approachable, helps to know some English to help us out a little. One of the best experiences in Lyon, highly recommended!

Some lovely flower gardens. Looked like excellent place for joggers and children to run around in. Would have investigated it more if we had had more time in city.

This park is an oasis in the middle of Lyon. We enjoyed having a picnic here followed by an ice cream in the zoo area. It was a good break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
