Spread out over 105 ha, the Park de la Tete d'Or is the largest park in France that can be found in the heart of a city. Responsibility for the creation of the park was put into the hands of Denis Bühler, a landscape architect.
Since its opening in 1856, the park has remained largely unchanged, with its lakeshore, large paths lined with hundred year old trees, zoological park, and botanical gardens.
