Within 5 minutes of entering the park, we found the zoo (free, and centrally located, not separated from the rest of the park). Within 30 seconds, we found the red pandas.

I am from this city and this place is something tourists must visit. Listen to me I said "must" not "should" in the park you will be able to grab a lunch either in restaurants or in snacks or in the grass with a sandwhich you made yourself. What can be more romantic that being on a boat just you... More

A quiet park to start a morning - Imagine a crisp morning breeze and the sound of birds having a morning discussion. This is one of my favorite parks in France. I nice cup of coffee and a fresh croissant. That is how to begin a day. It's the perfect spot.

Fantastic local park easy to access from most places in Lyon. A vast , spotless park, with plentiful children's activities and the best part is the free zoo

Visited on scorching sunny day with family. Park very busy and great atmosphere. Lots of open space, a huge boating lake and free access to the small but very adequate zoo. A great spot for long lazy picnic in the sun.
