Zoo may be a big word, this is a very small zoo / animal park but it's laid out well so you can spend a nice afternoon by yourself or with your family and kids. very cheap entrance fee but it closes by 6pm so you are advised to reach there at least a couple of hours earlier. Located opposite... More

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
