Parc Animalier La Garenne 2019

La Garenne animal park

La Garenne, a popular family excursion destination, is in Le Vaud, a village above Lake Geneva and bordering the Vaudois Jura Park. Open every day, the animal park is easily accessible by car or post coach on the Nyon - St. George line (daily) and the Gland-Bassins line (weekdays).

Active since 1965, La Garenne has healed wild animals in need, helped rare species to reproduce, presented many Swiss species and offered educational school workshops.

Entirely rebuilt and reopened on March 19th 2016, the new 3-hectare animal park offers moments of unusual observation and fun activities, allowing visitors to discover our regional biodiversity and to spend relaxing moments with the family.

During a walk you will discover lynxes, wolves, the highest aviary in Europe with its bearded vultures, marmots, ibexes, vultures and other animals.

The park also offers a highly-appreciated children's playground. There is also a restaurant with a terrace and several picnic areas. The paths and park facilities are suitable for disabled visitors and strollers.
It is possible to organize children's birthdays there.
