Park of the Golden Head

Interesting
Luxuriant vegetation from the high Sierras, flowers from the mountain regions of the globe in the Alpine Garden, a zoo (from 1858) with more than 1000 inhabitants, deer parks, a magnificent rose garden, with more than 70,000 plants representing 300 varieties which must be seen between June and October. What more could you want? Shows? The Guignol theatre is there. A water feature? It is there with an underground passage leading to the Île du Souvenir crowned by a monument to the fallen by Tony Garnier.
