Parks in Lyon

Parks and Outdoor Lyon

Lyon has some beautiful natural spaces for picnics, sporting activities and discovering nature.

There is the magnificent Parc de la Tete d’Or with its own zoo and miniature railway and Parc de Gerland complete with a skatepark and sports fields. There’s also Parc de Feyssine, a completely natural and mostly wooded park along the banks of the Rhone with plenty of trails for running and biking.

Lyon’s parks offer something for the whole family, with botanic gardens, swans and ducks, boating and more. There are plenty of things to do and plenty of spaces to get out and get active. And don’t forget to relax, too, with some beautiful spots to take a romantic walk or sit by a lake in the sun.
