Bois De Boulogne, Lille
Wander and enjoy this lovely park in the heart of the city. If you are lucky, like we were, there will be a funfair. Great fun to watch others!
On a Sunday afternoon, the park's zoo is full of people, including families. We saw animals never seen before by us, in the UK! the 'funky gibbon' on iles de singe, was a real crowd pleaser
In the centre of the park is the army garison, the Citadelle
Great value - since it is all FREE!
The Bois De Boulogne surrounds the Citadel and also houses the city zoo. The canal surrounds this wonderful area and it has some lovely picturesque lock gates.
There are fifty hectacres of countryside within the city limits and the space is home to fitness fanatics !!
It is the biggest green space in the city and everyone's favourite place for a Sunday afternoon walk.
