Abandonned zoo but free. We got lost and loosed several precious hours there. Not worth the visit unless you got time.

This parc is free and is lovely. Just spent all afternoon there. Took a picnic andsl sat in the shade and had a nap. Then walked perimeter. Lots to do but we were happy just pottering.

Parc de la Tete d'Or was one of the highlights of our trip to Lyon! The park is massive and there is tons of green space! The best part of the park was the FREE zoo that had a ton of animals (lions, tigers, elephants,...)....More

Biggest park in a city center in France. Very nice, a must do! For the lake, half an hour is enough on those little boats!

Spacious, green and vibrant park which is in the middle of Lyon. A lot of things to do (e.g. Zoo de Lyon) and cheap city bikes to use.

Something for everyone- zoo, lakes, small rides for children, lawns to hang out/picnic/meet friends, lots of paths for walking, running, biking; cafés. Nice break from city- if you're downtown you can even walk/ride/jog up the pedestrian zone of the Rhone left bank to get there.
