Parc de la Tete d'Or is 117 hectares (290 acres) of urban outdoor fun. The locals love it for jogging and cycling, while you’ll love it for boating, the zoo, and mini-golf. Construction of this city oasis began in 1812 and continues to the present day. The city adds exhibits every few years, such as an African Safari addition to the zoo in 2010. Although the park takes its name for a legendary treasure that may have been buried on its grounds, you’ll find that the real treasure isn't gold or diamonds but the serenity of the park’s environs.

  • This is a very large park sort of in the center of town. Some big open spaces as well as a lot of trees. Good for sitting, strolling or having a picnic.

  • Just spent most of the day having a lovely stroll around this fabulous park. There’s a small zoo, botanical gardens, a rose garden, a large lake, small cafes and miles of paths with plenty of trees...

  • Amazing place to go for a walk, take your kid or take your dog to! A fantastic amount of interesting animals (incl. Red Pandas !!) in a very calm, green and fresh environment. It's also central and free to get into. I go there for a walk every chance I get and highly recommend!!
  • Great park for running and cycling. Kid friendly too with play parks and many more fun activities. Has a carnival type setup as well as a zoo and pony rides. Boat rides avail on the lake and bikes also avail for rental. Best ever 'Crepes and Waffles'!
