  • Although located in a very nice park, this zoo is hard to see. Small cages, depressing enclosures... animals deserve better.

  • For the first time I'm split between a very bad and a very good note. AGAINST: Animals in prison so unhappy. FOR: This zoo has rocked my youth and that of many little Lyons... And that's always the case; everyone loves the "beasts" partly thanks to this place... The real priority seems to me to be the preservation of animals ... in the wild. Ps: In the 60s heaps of peanuts for deer (bought from my future wife's grandfather!) and I now know that it is not good for them .... Really very shared!

  • A free zoo is not that common. In addition, in the heart of the Tête d'Or park in Lyon, it's really ideal for a family day out. Our children were amazed by monkeys, flamingos, pelicans, zebras and especially giraffes, who are so elegant when they run! It's definitely worth it!

  • This is a small zoo within a great park, great to spend a warm afternoon, the animals are well taken care off, children will love it, parents too (as it’s free entrance)!
  • Free zoo in big park what is alsof very beautiful to visit. Big surface park so Bring step, Rent Nike! Little train for 5euro p adult and 3 euro p kid
  • wonderful zoo and free! The animals look like the have enough. although I would recommend to create more spaces with shade, this place is frequented by parents with kids and elderly and the summer heat can be unbearable sometimes
  • Very lovely zoo for free! The have monkeys, lion, fishes...
