At this point in your trip to Lyon, you've probably already covered Bellecour and Vieux Lyon. You've seen your share of traboules and have had enough of basilicas. Why not take a stroll around Lyon's Park of the Golden Head? Not only is it a great site, but it also enables you to see how the local Lyonnaise live (whether... More

We found ourselves in Cite International for a few days not knowing Lyon at all. We were so grateful to have the park nearby. Lyon was lovely but the centre is a bit of a hike from C.I. More local attraction than tourist attraction. Interesting botanical gardens, small zoo, lakes, plenty of space and a stunning rose garden. As a... More

This beautiful park is a wonderful place to explore - from the deer to the botanical gardens to the open spaces to the free zoo. Granted the zoo is not extensive but graet for youg children or people who just like to see these animals up close. if you go in the colder months they may have some of the... More

Lovely scenery one of the few spot in Lyon not polluted by car. The lake is beautiful surrounded by trees. The parc is near the Rhone. You can walk from the center of the town Le long the river Rhone and arrive at the park.

Beautiful old park with imposing gates and a nice lake and the old Lyon velodrome inside it. Well worth the visit with many different trees and gardens of all sorts.

If you go to Lyon with kids, Le Parc de la Tête d'or is a must! Visit the zoo for free or take the little train to go around the parc (a bit expensive but nice to have an overview of the parc). My children loved it! So much to do. Take a picnic, bikes and spend the day over... More
