Cute, clean free zoo in magnificent park

We visited on a very cold day in winter and still found it pretty, so I imagine it would be stunning in summer. Our Aussie kids were fascinated with the partially frozen lake! The... read more

We visited on a very cold day in winter and still found it pretty, so I imagine it would be stunning in summer. Our Aussie kids were fascinated with the partially frozen lake! The zoo was still open but quite a lot of the animals were (understandably) hidden away from the cold. Mr and Mrs Lion were snoozing in the... More

We wanted some fresh air so chose to ride on the veloV city bikes along the riverbank cycle path to the park. Although a very cold January day, the park was beautiful, the free public toilets open, and the various water features and of course the zoo made for a most enjoyable outing. In summer I'm sure it will be... More

This park is humongous (117ha) with a big lake on which you can go canoing. It's a great location for picnics, there are roseraies (with many rose species), there a beautiful greenhouses, there is a zoo, and many Asia inspired bridges. Because it is so big it remains a place of peace and quiet although it can get crowded. If... More

The park was one of my favorite places in Lyon. I ran the paths every day, went to the free zoo and enjoyed all the art and plants. It is definitely a work of art!

While on vacation in Lyon, I went running in the Parc de la Tete d'Or twice. This is a lovely place to run for a number reasons. First, there are many dedicated paths with the outer loop being about 4 km's and the inner loop around the lake 2 km's. Second, there are numerous other runner's around whether in the... More

It was my first visit to this park in late October and I have only beautiful memories. The park is very clean and well maintained, gorgeous colours and overall romantic setup.
