The biggest urban park in Villeurbanne, Feyssine Park was used for water catchment and enabled the Lyon urban area to be supplied with drinking water for more than 90 years. Water stopped being collected in the 1930s, the site was abandoned and new habitats developed.
Today, Feyssine Park preserves the landscape created by the alluvial forest and the banks of the Rhone. It also accommodates an animal and plant biodiversity that is not found anywhere else in Villeurbanne.
