Big, beautiful and free zoo

It is cool to walk around the lake. The free museum is interesting, with zebras, rats, lion, crocodile and others

I went when it was still hot in Lyon, and the park itself is huge and beautiful as some other reviews already suggest. Seeing the animals is really nice, and it's nice just to walk around the park without even doing any of the extra attractions. I really enjoyed the hours I spent there, my only criticism is that there... More

This is the biggest park in Lyon, France. Peolple go there whenever they don't have any place to go. I've visited there many times also, but I recommend you to go there in spring: beautiful flowers, nice and calm views.

We visited on a very cold day in winter and still found it pretty, so I imagine it would be stunning in summer. Our Aussie kids were fascinated with the partially frozen lake! The zoo was still open but quite a lot of the animals were (understandably) hidden away from the cold. Mr and Mrs Lion were snoozing in the... More

We wanted some fresh air so chose to ride on the veloV city bikes along the riverbank cycle path to the park. Although a very cold January day, the park was beautiful, the free public toilets open, and the various water features and of course the zoo made for a most enjoyable outing. In summer I'm sure it will be... More

This park is humongous (117ha) with a big lake on which you can go canoing. It's a great location for picnics, there are roseraies (with many rose species), there a beautiful greenhouses, there is a zoo, and many Asia inspired bridges. Because it is so big it remains a place of peace and quiet although it can get crowded. If... More
