Lyon - Parc de la Tete d'Or

Maybe it's designed as a time out spot for those attending a conference at the nearby International City of Lyon.

A huge area of trees, wandering paths, grassy areas, and lake - and it's easy to get away from the noise that the visiting school group might be making. Perfect for a lazy day - even for drifting around in one of the rental boats.

We spent an afternoon in the park. We didn't get to see the area marked as the Jardin Botanique - maybe we spent too much time lingering over the glass of wine at the cafe by the lake.
