Parc de la Tête d’Or (literally, Park of the Golden Head), in central Lyon, is an urban park in France, with 117 hectares (290 acres) it is 8.5 times smaller than bois de Vincennes in Paris.

Located in the 6th arrondissement, it features a large lake on which boating takes place during the summer months. Due to the relatively small number of other parks in Lyon, it receives a huge number of visitors over summer, and is a frequent destination for joggers and cyclists. At the northern end of the park, there is a small zoo, with giraffes, elephants, tigers and other animals. There is also sporting equipment, such as a velodrome, boules court, mini-golf, horse riding, and even a miniature train.

The park also contains four rose gardens, but also huge greenhouses, a botanical garden, a zoo and a velodrome.
