Kid-Friendly Lyon: Waterslides, Railways, and Zoos, oh my!
Lyon is truly a city for all ages, and there are tons of activities in the area to keep your little ones happy.
If you’re around in the summer, the swimming center on the banks of the
Rhône has an entire pool full of waterfalls, bubbling chairs, and slides for kids to enjoy. The Parc de la Tête d’Or has plenty to offer
too, with a zoo, miniature railway, and pony rides.
Looking for something more educational? The Parc de la Feyssine’s weekly “Anim’
Feyssine” allows kids to learn more about the nature around them. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, try the Miniatures Museum instead!
Located in the old quarter in Lyon St Jean in a Renaissance building, the Musées Gadagne comprise two truly beautiful museums: the Historical Museum of Lyon and the newly refreshed Museum of Puppetry Art.
The Quais du Polar which takes place every year in Lyon (Friday March 31st to Sunday April 2nd 2017) is an internationally recognised festival which brings together celebrated authors from around the world
