Meyzieu, our town
Meyzieu is situated near Lyon (15 Km distant), on the eastside.
Meyzieu is a town and not a village. 30 years ago, it was a village, but now, there are about 31 000 inhabitants called "les Majolans".
We have :
- a commercial area ;
- an industrial area ;
- houses and buildings ;
- an ancient center with some shops, and a market on Wednesday and Saturday ;
- a new park in the center ;
- a lot of schools, gymnasiums, stadiums, a beautiful swimming pool, a village hall, a concert hall, a cinema, a media library...
People are coming to live in our town for the calm and the nature : we have a beautiful lake "le Grand Large", to sail, to swimm and to walk.
The countryside and the town are not very far ! We have a tramway to go to Lyon , it's practical!
A lot of parents work in Lyon and we often go there to do shopping.
