Nice place for children

It is a good park for children. They can spend a full day as you have a large play area and lot of deer left free and close to children

Very good place to spend the whole place with kids, massive play area for children. Lots of empty space for the families to sit under the trees shade and have lunch. Also relax and have fond memories of the school days.

After visiting vandalur zoo, this one is comparatively small and less animals to see. But kids love this place, because of play area and spacious. My kid was happy to be here...he enjoyed running around and talking with animals and birds.

I was slightly disappointed.. the only positive was that I didn't have to spend much on entry, plus I didn't have to go the extra distance as it's within the city. There's nothing much inside: It has 2 gates- one for snake park which also has crocodiles, and the other's a mini zoo- deers, monkeys, birds, peacocks, etc- all caged... More

As kids, we grew up with only the Guindy National Park doubling as the Zoo @ Chennai. Later...came the Vandalur Zoo which took most of the animals (mostly wild) from Guindy to Vandalur. Must have been there over 10 times before I was 10 yrs old... atleast 6+ times during my kids growing stages...definitely kicked a lot of nice old... More
