    Relaxed morning in the park!
    Beautiful park with huge spaces!! Big trees, flowers all over and some coffee spots in several areas!! We went on weekday so the train and funpark wasn’t open but it is incredible just for a walk or a ride with bike! Many people where having a picnic which is an excellent idea as there are thick shadows in every corner!! The zoo is free as well as the botanical garden!! Great experience and ideal for children!!

    Wonderful open spaces
    Magnificent garden spaces with something for everyone. Tree lined avenues, a lake, paddle boats, fishing, playgrounds, mini train rides, vast lawn areas, conservatory and more. Seems to be well used by locals and tourists alike, I could spend all day walking and people watching. And did I mention the entrance gates!!

    A walk in the park
    Beautiful urban park just north of the city center. Many large fields for sports, a rose garden and even a small "zoo" with animals (antelope?) behind an empty moat. Great for a walk, including on the way to the Croix-Rousse neighborhood.

    Jewel of a Park in the Middle of the City
    We visited the park first by bicycle and later on foot. It was absolutely gorgeous both times. We visited today April 10th there were tons of things in bloom. Make sure to stop in botanic garden to see what is blooming there. Gorgeous park with a lake, zoo, botanical garden, conservatory and biking and running paths. Bathrooms are minimal so plan accordingly.

    Stunningly Beautiful Park
    I think this might be the most beautiful park I’ve ever visited. Great, wide running paths (no cars…2.5 mile loop), beautiful gardens and a zoo. Directly across the street from the Marriott.

A huge parc where you can have a sweet picnic for lunch or see the animals (zebras, giraffes...) in the zoo. There’s also a huge lake where you can do a pedalo (not during COVID). The access to the parc is free and you can even feed the geese and ducks near the lake. It’s perfect for couples and family gatherings.

Wonderful park and outdoor space in Lyon. A sort zoo of all sorts of animals plus horticulture like you've never seen before. Really beautiful and free so how can you heat that. Only thing I'd say is it is missing some signage.

The perfect place for a stroll or a jog. You can see giraffes in a large "plain" enclosure and a small zoo, there's a rose garden and lots of different sculptures. You can rent pedalos on the lake, or stroll through the shady groves of trees. The gates are epic, too.

This was a great find and highly recommended. We didn’t even get to the zoo or tour the botanical gardens, but enjoyed walking around the well maintained, tranquil park. And it has some outstanding paths for running - dozens of runners out there.

We visited here on a day where we had little to do. It is a big expanse of green, containing several floral installations, a lake, a zoo, and other assorted stuff. You can get close using the tram system. We did not visit the zoo, save for passing the giraffe pen. It’s a nice park and you could kill several hours here if you wanted to. Recommended

So much to see and do, we spent a full day wandering around. Knowing nothing of what to expect, we decided to visit as we love botanical gardens. Unlike some, these were entirely on the flat. Resplendent with colour. We avoided the hot houses as the temp outside was about 38C. Fortunately, we had plenty of chilled water with us. Leaving this part of the garden, we were astonished to see the head of a giraffe moving along. We hadn't appreciated the park also contained an open air zoo. We strolled around and stopped for a bite to eat. Afterwards we walked around the large lake and general park area before returning to the botanical area. Boats were available to hire for the lake as were 4 seater pedal bikes for the park. Just one downside, few toilets and of a poor quality. Otherwise, an excellent day out. All for free.

I actually visited in October 2020 but it would not let me choose that far back. The park is large and beautiful. I was absolutely in love with the trees as the bark on their trunk looks like nothing I’ve seen where I live in Canada. Just a small thing but they are smooth and mottled and so they ressemble à watercolour painting. A little train ride is available and a place to buy refreshments. And of course you will come upon the zoo with exotic animals! Spend an entire afternoon walking with your love or your family. Vast and beautiful and quiet. Right in the city. Highly recommend.

I was staying at the Marriott Cite International and decided to go for a walk in the park across the street. Wasn’t expecting much, just wanted some fresh air…but WOW!!!!
The parc contains: a lake, zoo (including giraffes), botanical gardens, lots of wildlife (turtles, flamingos, ducks etc), play area and mini train for the children, countless trails through the woods, and much more!!!!
I’ve been to many beautiful parks in London, Vancouver, New York, Quito, Galápagos etc. Parc de la Tete D’Or ranks with the best!! Don’t miss it.

Great spot with a lot of greenspace. Also, you can rent a boat. We came in the “wrong” entrance and wound up going through the zoo to get to the park. If you have kids with you, the park and zoo would be amazing. As adults only, finding a map to go beyond the zoo was a challenge. Worth a visit.

Visited this lovely park on a sunny spring day and enjoyed a walk around the well maintained grounds. There is a small zoo within the park. There is a train which runs around the park (small fee) but appears to operate seasonally. Admission to park/zoo was free. The Museum of Contemporary Arts is across from the park.
