It's part of an old forest apparently, full of trees and has water streams and bridges. It's located in Petit Lancy, between houses and building blocks. Part of it is fenced and has zoo animals inside. Outside the animals part there are swings, slides, sandbox and small fountain in a shallow pool for kids. A cafe and rest rooms are available. And park entry is free, even to the zoo park. Just one important note feeding animals there is strictly prevented.
The park is very quite and relaxing for adults and very entertaining for children. I expect weekends would be crowdy there.

Enjoy a walk along the rivers to the junction, and head up the embankment to a picturesque animal park, free for all ( except the dogs- no dogs allowed). A range of interesting animals, some in cages some wandering around. Safe for kid, and some statues that they can climb on. Most tracks around the area would be suitable for a kid on a bike/trike also, although there are some small hills. Take water with you, there is only one cafe/bar nearby.

Looking for something to do on a hot day? Wander through the FREE animal park at the Bois de la Batie. Expect to see: Ibex, pigs, chickens, goats, cows, turkeys, peacocks, etc. A lot of babies were born in 2016. On June 25, 2016 I saw baby piglets, lambs, peacocks, deer, ducks, and goats. TPG (public transportation) has a stop very close by (Claire-Vue). When you are done with the animals, move over to the enormous playground/splash pad area. There is a community garden and two restaurants located in the back of the park.
