  • One of the best thing done in the earlier time in Chennai. It's a huge and vast area of land. It has a lot of birds, reptiles and animals. Currently Areas are maintained clean and tidy. No plastic covers or carry bags 🛍 are allowed even biscuits packs. Security personnel will replace plastic snacks pack with paper package 📦. Drinking water 💦 facilities are provided in many places. Normal cycles 🚴 and electric cycles are provided so that you no need to walk for long distance. The vast area were not been utilized effectively. Compared to the Mysore zoo, animals are less here and Space is vast. Some of the places are empty and to see Tiger 🐯 and Bear 🐻 need to walk very far. Even some places need to come backwards and need to diverted to see the other places. By walking couldn't make to visit all the animal places. Over all its good to visit and u can enjoy with lots of people.
  • It is a wonderful park.. Good place for families and couples.. The entry cost is 50Rs per head and they charge extra 25 rs if you have mobile phone tab or cameras.. Here they give you cycles (Electric cycle also available) for rent...Good park but less animals.. They have all type of animals and birds but the number of animals is low..Drinking water is available in the park.. And the canteen and snacks is also available inside the park but the cost is high compared with outside shop.. Good place to visit.. Happy journey 😊
