Located adjacent to Raj Bhavan, the Guindy National Park boasts a rare type of foliage: tropical dry evergreen vegetation. Spread over a vast area of 2.7 sq km, this park is probably amongst the smallest of national parks, yet is teeming with wildlife like blackbucks, spotted deer, jackals, a variety of snakes, geckos, tortoises and over 100 species of birds and 60 species of butterflies and spiders. Sheltering over 350 species of plants, the park is a botanist’s delight. Some part of this space has a zoo and a children’s park. Another attraction is the Guindy Snake Park that houses king cobra, pythons, vipers and other reptiles. The park is open from 9 am to 5:30 pm and is shut on Tuesdays. It makes for a great place to visit with the whole family.
