Beautiful park with lots to see

Nice place to visit in couple or in family. A kind of Central Park or Hyde Park, where you will see runners in the morning and where you can visit a free zoo with Giraffes, monkeys...It was raining day when we went and we got a great experience !

It's a vast park with some animals which you can catch a view for free. It's a good place to have a picnic with friends but certainly not much activities you can do here. Seems like a good place to jog or walk your dog.

That's a great place for a walk. Easy to reach, green, relaxing and safe. You can take something to eat or go there for fitness. Do not miss it if you are in Lyon!

we hired bikes from one of the many bike stations but as we are not experienced riders we found this a real haven from the traffic. Very spacious and obviously well used by the locals. The zoo is not large but quite interesting although on the day we were there it was so hot most of the animals were, very... More

Being lucky enough to stay just ten minutes walk from this beautiful city centre park we were able to enjoy it at our leisure. Along with locals from all walks of life, schoolchildren, students, joggers, lovers, young and old alike, who obviously take great pleasure from all that is to be found in this oasis of calm, we spent several...

The park Is Huge with a lake, a zoo and botanical gardens. Would definitely recommend a visit you can spend a whole day here! The restaurant is over priced and not that great so I would recommend bringing a picnic , my only gripe is that the park is so big yet the enclosures for the animals are tiny

A very charming spot to spend the day. There are paddleboat and oarboat rentals, great greenhouses, lovely gardens and a small zoo, rides and attractions for children abound.

An awesome park, with lake, museums, gardens, and massive green areas to enjoy a picnic. Bring your wine, cheese, baguettes, and everything else, and take advantage of this amazing place.

Had a nice time in the 290 acre park about a third the size of NY Central Park! Nice 40 acre lake, lots of trails and pretty botanical gardens, really nice rose garden and even a nice smaller one as well on other side of lake, mediocre zoo but fun for kids! Park was a nice getaway from city although... More
