You cannot find big animals like tiger,lion, elephant.. This is just the park with some small animals like monkey,deer .. Be careful sometimes monkey is roaming outside. Don't expect anything more here.. This is good place for lovers.

It's a small park next to Adyar Cancer Hospital. The park has small collection of deer, monkeys and other animals. Nothing like the bigger Vandalur Zoo. Not a must see place if you are from outside chennai.
