about guindy national park

One of the few national parks situated within city limits, Guindy National Park  Chennai also holds the distinction of being the 8th smallest national park of India (yes, it does read smallest). Unfortunately today Guindy National Park's floral biodiversity of dry evergreens and thorn forests is rare and as endangered as the resident Blackbucks and some of the other species the park is home to. Named after the original name of Raj Bhavan, Guindy Lodge, on whose extended grounds it is located, the park is home to Blackbucks, Spotted deer, Jackals, Snakes, Tortoises and many other animals, birds and insects. Ironically the park used to be a game reserve back in the days of the British rule and covers a small portion of one of the last remnants of the tropical dry evergreen forest making the Coromandel coast.

Working on a range of conservation and ex-situ and in-situ measures, the park is taking definite strides towards the conservation of city's natural heritage. Sectioned into Snake Park where you can get intimidated by King Cobra and Python amongst other snakes, and Children's Park where a Tyrannosaurus greets you and a number of animals, crocodiles and other reptiles can be seen, Guindy National Park has a designated protected area entry within which is possible only in the company of a forest ranger.
