Children can... More

We had finished visiting the Snake Park and since this was just next door - we decided to give the children's park a try. It is a beautifully shaded area with lots of seating and neatly laid paths. There is just a few animals like snakes, deer, monkeys, birds like peacocks, parrots, parakeets, etc. Not too may animals and some... More

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.

Again had a chance to visit children park today. No improvement from the previous visit. Poorly maintained. Not much of animals. Not worth in visiting.

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.

Guindy National Park, Snake Park and Children park are one and the same. You will see only snakes and little bit of birds inside park. Nothing else.

Great place to spend a Sunday evening with kids. The park is located opposite the Anna University and adjacent to the IIT-Madras. As the park is located in the middle of the city and on the main road it is easily accessible from all major parts of the city. There is not a lot of variety when it comes to... More

There are games for kids like swing, slides and see-saw and few more. But everything is old. It looks quite dangerous as if anything may fall or collapse anytime. Owing to the sight of animals and birds around, this will be one of the best place to hang out for kids, if periodically maintained well.
