we were in the Chennai children s park last month.The park is really maintained very poor.There was no drinking water inside.Moreover the entire park is littered with lots of plastic materials like water pet bottles,carry bags........etc.There were only few animals and not really that attractive.

Place is fun for kids. Nothing much for adults though. Miniature type of a Zoo in the name of children s park. Place can get extremely hot during afternoons. Advisable to wear some clothes which will withstand the heat. Dont forget the coolers, comfortable footwear and plenty of liquids to drink.

If you only have a short time in Chennai, give this one a miss. But if, like us, you are staying in Chennai for an extended time with children, this patch of (mostly) shady outdoor space might be helpful to try out. There are animals kept in appalling cages. But the playground areas are well sized (perhaps the biggest in... More

So much more can be done to this park to make it more appealing to the children.

Be there in the evening around 4PM. Just to escape from the hot sun. Worth spending 2 hours with your little one. Your little one will have lot of fun. i bet. There are lot of small games to play. Animals and birds are good in number.

The Childrens park was a real eye opener in to what is thought to be suitable housing for animals in some countries. I naturally judged it by western zoo standards, and this place would without a doubt get shut down in Europe. The enclosures are tiny and inadequate and what we saw of the diets for the primates in particular... More

For a place to go out with children, this is a good one. if the kids are interested in wildlife, a good starting point to show them some of the deers and birds. Also to have a look at the crocs and otters. The choice of food and drinks are very limited and the condition of some of the play... More

I had been to the Children's park a while back and when I went recently, I was pleasantly surprised as to how much cleaner the place looked now. The park has a mini zoo and lots of space with greenery all around. There is an adjoining snake park which is also worth a visit. Suggest the place for a leisurely... More
