This huge park is great for a Sunday walk or just for hanging out. In fall the gardens are not blooming, but it still a good place to go.

The zoo is free. You don't see that very often. The park and gardens are nice for a walk or run. Nice landscaping in the garden areas. Good trail system. We were there in cold weather, but it looked like they had boats for rent on the lake in nicer weather.

The Tete d'Or is something that every big modern city should have, a huge free park with a lot of space to stroll, do sport or simply relax on the grass.

It has a Zoo inside with a surprisingly big variety of animals for a free park.

I lived for three month in Lyon, and this was THE weekend spot.

Lots to see and do in the park, even on a cloudy day that we had.

The gardens had some beautiful specimens. We saw about 100 varieties of dahlia in bloom - amazing! Lots of "themed" gardens to walk through.

The animal area was quite good. Most amazing was a baby giraffe and its mother. The turtles lined up on logs were really cute.

We didn't have enough time to give this park the full treatment it deserved. We barely got to the lake before it was time to head home. But next time...

We loved the lake, where you can hire a boat. Take a picnic and eat it by the lake. We bought scrummy food and wine at the indoor market, and took it to the park. Walk around the lake - there are plenty of paths to take, and the bird life is fantastic. The tram to/from Lyon stops right at the gates to the park.
