Tête d'Or Park (Parc de la Tête d'Or) Tours and Activities

Tête d'Or Park (Parc de la Tête d'Or)
The 289-acre Tête d'Or Park (Parc de la Tête d'Or) was designed by landscape architect Denis Bühler and opened in 1856. It is also home to one of France's leading botanical gardens, with more than 20,000 plant varieties. There is an international rose garden that is popular in the spring when the flowers are in bloom. Another popular attraction is the African plain, which is a zoological area of more than 7 acres where zebras, giraffes, antelopes, lions, and other rare species roam free.

The lake is a great place to participate in water activities such as boating and swimming. Children can enjoy mini boat rides in a pool dubbed the Little Lake. There are also pony rides, two tourist trains, quads with pedals, swings, go karts, and a carousel to make the day more fun for younger visitors. Bring your own picnic or stop at the park's shop for sweets, snacks and souvenirs.

Practical Info

Parc de la Tete d'Or is located east and south of the Rhône River and can be accessed from Boulevard des Belges or Boulevard Stalingrad.
