Must see · Park · Nature / Park
Parc de la Tete d'Or is 117 hectares (290 acres) of urban outdoor fun. The locals love it for jogging and cycling, while you’ll love it for boating, the zoo, and mini-golf. Construction of this city oasis began in 1812 and continues to the present day. The city adds exhibits every few years, such as an African Safari addition to the zoo in 2010. Although the park takes its name for a legendary treasure that may have been buried on its grounds, you’ll find that the real treasure isn't gold or diamonds but the serenity of the park’s environs.

  • It was amazing to have a pleasant surprise after another when we visited thinking it was just a park. This park has a free zoo with giraffes!! The greenhouse was big and beautiful! Definitely family friendly with playgrounds and activities. The washrooms are free and are placed throughout the park.
  • Big park, plenty of green space, a lake, an interesting zoo. Plenty of space to ride a bike or rollerskate. A botanical garden, a rose garden. You can find many things in this place and enjoy the nature at the same time 😀
