Nice place to Visit But need proper care and modification

Unfortunately, nowadays some of the floral species of dry evergreens and thorn forests of the Guindy National Park became rare and endangered. Dealing with a range of preservation and ex-situ and in-situ measures, this national park is getting a perfect step towards the conservation of the national heritage of Chennai as well as South India.

This beautiful national park is considered as the tourist paradise due to its environment and natural beauty. There are different types of animal around there and deers are extremely prominent. Once upon a time, the park was a beautiful zoo, but today this national park is completely uncared and unkempt. If government wants to make the place clean, then they have to take some steps. Visitors should not be allowed to bring any  eatables, plastic covers or some other things inside the premises, as most of the people tend to feed the animals the junk food like pop corns, chips, chocolate and even plastic covers. So it is highly recommended to Government that please take proper care of them in a sophisticated manner. Because they are not human beings, so they cannot ask what they want. So people should be taking care of their all need and requirements and also protect them by giving proper and sufficient food.
