National park's excellent space to show urban forest conservation
Enter the jungle: Where in this busy city would you find 150 species of birds?
Over the years, Guindy National Park has become enriched with biodiversity, including 350 plant species, 150 bird species and around 12 species of mammals, thus becoming an excellent showcase of urban forest conservation.
Guindy National Park (GNP) is spread across 2.7 sq. km and is the 8th smallest national park in the country.
GNP is a critical green lung and an excellent space to showcase urban forest conservation.
Although some of the walking trails within the park were destroyed during Cyclone Vardah in 2016, one trail still remains open for school students to tour around the park.
