Description

The Parc Zoologique de Lille or the Zoo de Lille is a wonderful place to visit with family, especially if you are a nature lover. The zoo, just 10 minutes away from the heart of the city, is housed in the wooded park area of the famous Citadel, designed by Vauban. The park and woodland surrounding the Citadel extends over 50 hectares and is popular among joggers and families who are out to visit the zoo or to relax in the park. The zoo is home to over 300 animals in 80 species, and plays an important role in conservation; by breeding rare and endangered species in captivity. With over 1 million visitors a year, the zoo is one of the most popular free entry tourist sites in France.
