The World As We See It , or as we missed it … April 2012

Parc de la Tête d’Or in central Lyon, France, is an urban park occupying 117 hectares (290 acres), which dates back to 1856. It features a large lake on which boating takes place during the summer months. Huge numbers of people visit over summer and it is a popular destination for joggers and cyclists all year. As well as the lake, the park incorporates a small zoo, a velodrome, boules court, mini-golf, horse riding and a miniature train.

There are 7 entrances but the most impressive is the “Enfants du Rhône” gate which opens out onto the lake, the centerpiece of the park’s landscape design. The immense lawns of romantic inspiration alternate with groves of trees often over a hundred years old. The flower beds, rose and peony gardens bring a year-round touch of color and perfume.

For lovers of things botanical, the park has four Rose Gardens, including the International Rose Garden of Lyon, which occupies 40,000 sq. m. with 350 varieties among the 30,000 bushes.
The park is also home to The Botanical Gardens of Lyon, which were transferred to the Tête d’Or Park in 1857. It grew to include plants from all over the world and is now the largest municipal botanical garden in France, covering 8 hectares (19 acres), with 6500 sq. m of hothouses.
