i gorgeous park with a huge lake, a zoo, bike riding, paddle boating, lots of activities. You could easily spend more than a day here. The locals told me its lot that impressive and if you do not have time, skip it, but I think they are underestimating the attraction - I really really liked it a lot.

The park is the best place in town. It is full of activity for any kind of person. You can run early in the morning and enjoy the Zoo in the afternoon. You can also have a long and nice walk around the flowers and trees. You can play mini golf and have drinks at the island!! The park is... More

Small but fun zoo, amazing gardens, gorgeous lake, and just an amazing experience. Plan on at least a couple hours, more if you want to see everything, as this place is HUGE! Stunning, can't wait to go back!

We arrived in Lyon on a day of 42degrees C. Our host suggested the park and it was a perfect outing for the day. There is a historic cast iron greenhouse, which is beautiful. And just the extra oxygen put out by the plants and trees was a great relief from the heat.

We hired bicycles and found this a great way to see this large parc, which was delightful in the Spring sunshine

Everything I am looking for from an urban park, 117 Hectares, a zoo, botanical gardens, lake, play areas, wide open grass areas, just lacking a resto (they have one but it has been closed for the last two years)

On a sunny Sunday afternoon, this was a great choice to wander around, take in the family-friendly enjoyment and pedal a boat on the lake (well worth a 15 minute queue and reasonable price). The war memorial island is accessed by an under-lake tunnel and the landscaped garden and rose plantation were wonderful to take in at our leisure

This was a very special spot. It includes a Botanical garden, zoo, and several different lakes and trails. Well maintained and beautiful. Many different places to visit, some appropriate for children and families, some for seniors and some for young people. The lake in the middle is interesting. I loved cycling around the place. Would definitely go back.
