A nice place for both children and parents. What impressed me the most was the snakes and reptiles park. We combined our visit with a pic nic and it was a nice experience. Not something exceptional but it worth a visit.

On my transit from kolkata to bangalore via chennai, I decided to visit Guindy National Park with my familiy and a small kid. Although it is called a "National Park", it is a small place with very limited number of animals. It has different types of birds and few animals like deer, monkeys, snakes etc. So keep your expectations low... More

The Guindy national park is probably one of the smallest national parks in India. It doesn't cover a huge space but has got few animals that are placed well spaced out in the park. You would get to see elephants, foxes, mongoose, jackals, spotted deers and a few birds.There are a lot of stone seats available for you to take... More

We visited this park on the late afternoon of 16th April, 2014. My children enjoyed the park very much. The highlight of the park was the deer who was very friendly with human beings. The park had sufficient benches and shades for the visitors. The birds too were very attractive and beautiful.I loved the monkeys.

Guindy National Park is not to be confused with an amusement park. This is an area of biodiversity within a metropolitan area. Once about 5 square kilometers and now reduced to half its size by the indiscriminate felling and construction by the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. It is a natural conservatory for 400 blackbucks, 2,000 spotted deer, 24 jackals,... More

The name Guindy National Park....is very misleading. Once upon a time this park was a zoo, but now it is uncared and unkempt, since the zoo has moved to a beter and bigger place. There are a few enclosures and a snake park. An aquarium, nothing to boast about. Visitors will definately be disappointed. Tuesday is a weekly holiday and... More
