About Parc De La Tete D'or, Lyon

The park is Lyon’s favourite place. Despite the fact that it’s not as big as some other similar parks in France, it draws a massive crowd because it’s the only worthwhile ones in the city. The most famous of the park’s seven entrances is the Infants du Rhone. It offers a 16 acre lake in which baiting is permitted in the summer from the pier on the south bank. It has massive lawns that are encircles by wide and shady pathways; huge greenhouses and many decorative flowerbeds; and sculptures everywhere. There are four rose gardens, the most famous of them the International Rose Garden covering 40000 square metres, 30000 roses over 350 species. The Botanical Garden roses on the other hand trace the history of the rose. The trees aren’t any small fry either; 8800 individuals over various species include the Lebanese cedars, the tulip trees, gingko biloba, and bald cypress.

The park even has a zoo. Originally housing only some farm animals, enough animals (600) have been added over the years that it can now be considered a real zoo. About 70 species are represented including more of 30 of Europe’s breeding programmers. A section of the zoo call the African Plain is its most popular exhibit – a place where 130 different animals, sometimes of rare and protected species, are kept in sections like savannah, wet land, reptile house, desert and plain pavilion. Animals include the Barabary Lion, Ankole-Watusis, the Nile Lechwes, guineafowls and Black Crowned Cranes, pelicans, flamingoes, lemurs, crocodiles, antelopes, yellow mongooses, porcupines, sand cats, leopards, lions and turtles.

Walking, jogging, picnicking, people and animal watching aren’t the only pleasures you get to enjoy here – there’s even a vellodrome for some really awesome cycling.

Parc De La Tete D'Or, Lyon Reviews

Google+
  • Lovely spacious green park just outside of Lyon. Ideal for taking a break from the city and the roads particularly if on a bike. Great place to explore and enjoy the views. Excellent place for a picnic although there are a couple of cafes within the Park that serve food. Enjoy the multiple paths, grass areas, flowers and even a zoo. Entry to the park is free and bike hire in the city is cheap so be sure to enjoy at least one lap of this beautiful place.

  • This place is crowded but it's really cool. It reminds me of the parks in London. They also have a free zoo which is really nice as the animals seem to be well cared for. I have never seen so many giraffes! Lovely park in a city which is already not crowded...

  • A huge park to make a picnic. The atmosphere is very close to nature. If the weather is sunny you can enjoy a boat ride which is very relaxing. You can easily spend around 3-4 hours of your leisure time. If you're in a hurry then you cannot take much from this park. Best feel can be experienced when the weather is sunny

  • Very calm place in the middle of a busy city. However, it may get very (read 'extremely') crowded during warm, sunny weekends. A great place to relax a bit nevertheless. + + calmness (except during sunny weekends) + + possibility to enjoy multiple attractions in the same place (zoo, Souvenir island, botanical gardens, picnic area, ...) + possibility to carry out multiple activities (kids' train, biking, boats, merry-go-rounds, ...) - - - on sunny weekends the park gets literally overcrowded - - expensive restaurants and cafés - opening hours are a bit restrictive

  • Well worth a visit, so much to see! Gardens, lake, Zoo, play areas, train and many more thing's to see. You can even hire a bicycle! Great place for the kids with plenty of information boards.
