Here’s a national park right in the heart of the city. The park covers 2.82 square kilometers and is home to an impressive number of mammals and insects that are a huge attraction for the children. It’s a pleasant surprise to see this vast array of biodiversity in the heart of the city.

The Park is huge, covering a large part of Guindy, with places located all around it. Different varieties of animals spread all over its area. Can be hard to navigate during the hot sunny season, but nevertheless pleasing during the colder weather.
