Nice park to spend the afternoon

Visited a few areas of this park, including the greenhouse, zoo and lake. The zoo was amazing! So cool to see that many giraffes. Lots of nice spots for a picnic.

Spent an afternoon with my sister strolling along that lovely park. What a beautiful place for all ages, may it be to visit the zoo, botanical gardens, a walk along the lac or a picnic. Free of charges and easy to access.

unfortunately, when I showed up with my friends, we arrived too late to see the animals, but we had an amazing time walking around the park still. There is a lot to see, and lots of space for activities!

The Parc de la Tete d'Or is very large and contains large botanical gardens somewhat similar to Kew Gardens. Well worth a visit and close to a Metro station.

Went for a stroll on Sunday very friendly family park with a café worth trying, easy to walk around with lots of areas to sit. Would have liked to have taken a boat out on the lake

We stopped for a lovely cool drink next to the lake, enjoyed the ducks and the squirrels and the roses. A very pretty place to visit and overwhelmingly used by joggers which is great to see the locals keeping fit.

Very nice relaxing green place with zoo, botanical garden, playgrounds for kids, places for picnic and so on.. It must be beautiful especially later in the year because of all the flowers🙂.
