The Tierpark is an ideal picnic spot that combines an animal park with a nice wooded area for a quiet picnic. It has water bodies and parks for an idyllic setting. It's ideal for a day spent outdoors!

not at the actually park i think, but if you come out of the park and walk in the direction into the city i think there would be plenty of places to take a dip in the rhine, you will see people doing it anyway
