    I still quite shocked by this visit of the zoo of Lyon, I still wonder how animals can openly be treated under such conditions: small cage, in full sun, too many animals per cage. The image of the only bear in his pen turning in circles by bored is rather revealing. I am not an expert of the animals but this jumped me in the eyes

    Pretty cool free Zoo, with a lot of animals all the same. However a lot of people stuck with windows we therefore abandon the tour but go during the week or outside school holidays it may be nice.

    Small zoo and yes it is free to enter. Easily walkable. Animals seem to be restricted in small spaces, sad. There are even lion and panther but in the summer you can't see anything anyway.

    Small, pleasant, free, easily walkable zoo with tastefully done displays and highly visible animals. It's surrounded by a lovely botanical gardens and park. Very nice.

    Yes it's a small zoo but they have red pandas so who cares?! And the park is beautiful, you could spend all day there on a nice day.

    the parc zoo wasn't bad but the place with predator like lion was little and the parc was a little too. however the parc was beautiful with so many kinds of flowers

Where to stay in Lyon

Lyon’s nine districts surround the two major rivers running through the city: the Rhône and the Saône. The most scenic districts are Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) and La Croix Rousse, where the city’s historic sites are located. Lodging in these areas is walking distance to these sites. Near the breathtaking Parc de la Tête, the Tête D’Or district offers a quieter option away from the city center.
