Perfect place for a morning run, picnic or an afternoon stroll. This place is happening and full of people on a sunny day. There is even a free zoo and row boats here. I promise you will love it!

I stumbled upon this park during an impromptu blizzard in Lyon, and even the freezing cold weather didn't stop me from loving it. You can rent bikes (one of the great things about Lyon - their bike rental system is fantastic) and take a ride around the lake. There is a beautiful botanical garden and even a small zoo at the eastern end of the park (though, like most zoos, it's slightly depressing). If you're looking for somewhere to jog or get a nice walk in, this is the perfect place !

This is a beautiful park in the middle of Lyon. You can rent electronic bikes at the entrance and ride the bike path along the Rhone river. There is a rose garden, a zen garden, a gorgeous lake, a huge glass house and even a zoo! Picnic would be a great idea too.

I studied abroad in Lyon for the semester and this place was by far my favorite spot to come to. It's definitely your typical park as the place is massive. You can easily spend an entire day here, specially on Sundays when most Lyonnais don't work, this place is packed with people promenading and picnicking in the open fields. Best of all there's a zoo with free admission.

Superbe parc, le poumon de Lyon, le central park local. Parfait pour se balader, faire un footing ou un picnic. Il y a même un zoo gratuit et une roseraie.
