Last July we look our two grandsons there. They live in Lyon, and enjoy this park. There is so much to do. Walk around the Zoo, enjoy a boat ride on the vast Lake, on anything from a pedilo , to a motor boat. people walk, run, jog, cycle, skate board, scooter along. It's a lovely place to see, and...

The parc is REALLY great, the grass, rose gardens and lake are tryly beautiful! but one complain, the Zoo is horrible.... esspecially for adults and teens, who sees the true horrible state all the animals except the deers and Emus have. The panther was a nightmare to watch, as it was closed into a glass "mini theater", as he just... More

This is a great place for a relaxing walk or a place to eat lunch and enjoy the outdoors, plus, it's all free! If you have kids, I'm sure they'd love seeing all the animals as well. A warning though, the restrooms aren't very nice or clean for most the park.

The park is situated north in Lyon. We went to stroll around the park a Saturday morning, nice and sunny in March... We started off with the zoo. Animals behind glass or river/water... no old fashioned metalic bars. One old cage is still exposed for 'souvenir' - empty. Since it was a bit cold still, the giraffs were in their... More

La Tet d'Or is an incredibly nice park at the heart of modern Lyon. It is in front of Le Museée d'art Contemporaine and a splendid new area (Lyon, Cité International by a Maestro of modern architecture, Renzo Piano). Here joggers have a 4 km perimeter for doing an exciting training session. The track is flat with enjoyable green at... More
