“Brilliant place for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

The zoo was fun and we rode on the trikes- good way to get around the park exploring the various parts and around the lake.Allow at least 2 hours there especially if with kids. There are lots of play areas for them-great place with lovely peaceful areas as well as nice and noisy parts.

“A definite must-see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

My friends and me loved the Parc de la Tete d´Or. The greenery is beautiful and there are a lot of spots perfect for making awesome photos. We were impressed by the underwater tunnel. The free zoo botanical garden are a big plus as well. The lake is wonderful as well. If it hadn´t been raining we would have definitely have picnic and enjoy the parc a few extra hours.

“Wonderful Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

This park puts many to shame. Several well-cared for acres of botanical gardens, lakes, greenhouses, even a zoo! The park is clean and well equipped with restrooms and lots of benches. You can easily get snacks from vendors and simply enjoy the nature around you. Lovely way to spend the day!
