Parc de Loisirs de la Citadelle
Fun kid’s park
Spanning over 70 hectares, Parc de Loisirs de la Citadelle is both Lille’s largest park, and largest green area. With so much space, the park has filled up with many fun activities that the whole family can enjoy. There is a large playground for kids, including a carousel and safe, state of the art structures. There is a small work out area with exercise equipment, although many people choose to jog around the track or walk the numerous paths. Parc de Loisirs de la Citadelle is most notable for housing the city zoo, which is free to enter and has nearly 500 animals. Even if you don’t engage in any of the park’s activities, it’s still a vast open space where you can have a picnic or curl up under a tree with your favorite book.
