Beautiful park with a free zoo in the middle of the city! You can see giraffes, flamingos, monkeys and a lion right on your doorstep. Take a rental bike to go round. So much fun!

This park is a fantastic place for the entire family. You can rent little paddle boats to relax on a beautiful man made lake, take a train ride around the park, visit a zoo, the botanical and rose garden are a delight. Truly a gem in the heart of Lyon, be prepared to get lost!

Only 4 subway stops from the center of the Lyon's old town, it was a nice surprise to zee this garden. The zoo was also well organized and taken care of. They have a collection of rare animals from Madagascar.
