Parc de Gerland, also called Parc du Confluent, is a large greenspace in Lyon situated on a former industrial site in the south of the city near the confluence of the Rhône and the Saone. Construction began in 1996, and the park was developed over an area of 80ha. The initial two phases of construction concluded in 2000 and 2006, and were carried out by landscape architect. The project was managed by Grand Lyon.
The park includes several playgrounds, a skatepark and a botanical garden. It is situated next to the Stade de Gerland, and was used during the French archery championship finals in 2007 and 2012.
