Beautiful Zoo

Quite a small zoo, but at least it is free, and it is in the most beautiful park in Lyon which is la Tete d'Or. This historic space which was bought originally by the city council from the city's hospitals lets families discover the animals of the world, their way of life, and how to help the animals' survival ...It was bought to give the citizens a green space. The zoo brings together birds, monkeys, mammals elephants ... And if they appear sad and missing their African land, most animals seem to have adapted well to the climate of Lyon. Many animals come from afar, from antelopes to lions or bears.

Relatively small zoo

It's a relatively small zoo, but it has the good thing of being free. It's in the most beautiful park in Lyon, La Tête d'Or. This leisure site of rest allows families to discover the animals of the world. Learn about their way of life and learn how species can survive in the world. It's a historical place, which was originally purchased by the city to provide some greenery to Lyon and offer something to the people that could not afford to go on vacation to the countryside. The zoo gathered birds, monkeys, mammals ... and if the elephants seem a little sad and melancholy swaying from one leg to another, nostalgic African lands, most of the animals did not seem unhappy to be here.
