Take bus C1 from Part-Dieu train station or bus C5 from place Bellecour and Hôtel de Ville to the Parc Tête d'Or-Churchill stop. The Park is huge, full of trees, flowers, ducks and a beautiful lake. In a sunny day a lot of people passing by, making picnic and relaxing on this park. The park includes botanic gardens with greenhouses,... More

After so many trips to Place Bellecour and shopping, it was quite refreshing to come across this park. It needs some maintenance, but there are gardens, an island in the lake which has a statue memorial, a mini-zoo for children, and pretty walking paths.

They have really put together a nice park with plenty to offer. I find it very relaxing also. The zoo being blended in with the park is a great idea and only adds to the offering.

Just a short walk from our hotel, the Park proved a perfect Sunday morning excursion to walk off the previous evenings gourmet events. Clean and tidy, with a large lake, it certainly blew the cobwebs away. Be aware that Lyon seems to be full of joggers and ardent cyclists on a Sunday, so be prepared to share the paths with... More

A great place to walk around just a few minutes from the center, really nice and clean. Was impressed by the lake and the zoo, and the great gardens you can spend all day having a relaxing picnic,well in the weekend is a little crowded but huge enough to be able to escape from the crowds.

a big green space to hang out on a sunny day. the zoo is limited though with few animals but it worth the time to walk and hang out.

If you are in Lyon south of France, chances are your friends would advise you to go and visit this Parc de la Tete d'Or, which is like Central Park for New Yorkers. It is supposedly the largest in Europe, so the locals say, very proud of its Rose garden, "la Roseraie". Located slightly offside the city center, the access... More

A fantastic park with lots of space for picnics and places to run; cycle, scoot, walk. You name it. I could easily return many times here with the family as they enjoyed the park and with our second visit explored separate areas which we didn't see before. The kids loved the zoo and the safe cycling tracks as well as... More
