Banks of the Rhône

Berges du Rhône - Between Morand and Wilson's bridges, Lyon 3, Lyon 6

Stretching from the Parc de la Tête d’or to the Parc de Gerland, the banks of the Rhône were completely revamped in 2007 to offer the people of Lyon a whole new environment. With its shady lawns and children’s playgrounds, it is a popular place for locals to relax and socialise.

The area between pont Morand and pont Lafayette bridges is particularly suited for the large-scale installations which can be admired from near and far during the Festival of Lights. The illuminations here are traditionally sponsored by the Compagnie Nationale du Rhône (CNR).
