In lovely Lyon there is a lot to do and the parkland is well used by locals soaking up sun and family time. The zoo itself is free which is great but there are very few animals so on that basis I would leave it...More

It’s a free zoo in the middle of the park. It’s only small but so lovely to stroll past in the day and see such amazing animals while just walking through. I personally haven’t seen anything like it and it’s definitely worth a visit in...More

What is nice is that the animals are relatively close and wide spread. So you can both enjoy the park, walk around and see the animals.

The fauna variety may not be as wide as in the capital cities but all the animals are in a very comfortable onditions and in a spacious cages. The park and botanical garden surrounding the zoo are amazing. Lots of playgrounds around.

We spend just a day in Lyon and this place certainly swayed us in choosing a hotel. We stayed very close to this place. The kids loved seeing all the animals. It’s free to walk around and some animals I haven’t really seen anywhere else....More

Nice zoo but with animals in prison whatever. Free entrance. A "savane" place try to make it as in Africa (but so smaller than in Africa).

The second time in my life I visit a city zoo, for free!!! The first place was in Montpellier. The free zoo in Lyon is good, a lot better that the zoo in Montpellier. Recomended!

We were happy to run across this small zoo in the middle of the quite beautiful park. Though it is small, there were some animals that I have never seen anywhere, like the sand cat and the bat fox.
