Off-leash parks for dogs?

4 Replies



Hi there, I'll be moving to Lyon in May or June with an active, year-old puppy. Are there any off-leash parks (or parks where dogs are permitted off-leash) in Lyon? Thanks for any advice, Chris

The Parc de la Feyssine is great, nearly everybody with dogs walks them off the lead.  It is huge and on a sunny Sunday like we had yesterday there are lots of families, many with dogs so the dogs can get to socialize a bit.

Also, slightly further away is the Parc de Miribel Jonage, also highly recommended for dogs.

Am sure your puppy will have fun!

Parc Tete d'Or has two dog parks,,,, one for small dogs and another for larger ones where there are activities for dogs where they can enjoy a good run around as the areas are enclosed.

Thanks both, it's good to know that there are some options.

Now we'll just need to figure out how to get her to the parks since we won't have a car and we won't necessarily live close to the parks.

Thanks again for the info,

Hi Chris,

Yes, the three parks mentioned are basically Villeurbanne and needing transport.

It doesn't sound like your choice of location will be guided by park access so drop me a line when you know where you will be living. As an experienced dog walker, city and country, I can give some more insights then. 

Good luck-Keith
