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!

Have been to this beautiful 'parc' 4 times and still look forward to our next visit. It is sprawling with so many different parts to enjoy, some free and some for a small cost. Kids love it but adults do as well. If it is...More

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.

When do the roses start blossoming in spring? Is late April too early? I would like to time a visit to see them at their best, including the historical once-blooming varieties, if possible.

The daffodils are in full blossom this week already. (March 25th) For Roses, it will highly depend on the weather till late April. But there should be some.
