The V.O.C Zoo is quite a small Zoo when compared to other zoo’s. But, if you want to spend time quickly without traveling much from the center of the city, this is a good option! There is a park beside the zoo too. The park also has Architectures, Toy train, and a Jurassic Park.
- Toy Train
This train takes you twice around a herd of deer. The cost for the ride is Rs 6. Kindly Click on the video Below to view the mini ride.
- Jurassic Park
The replica of many dinosaurs in the Jurassic era can be seen inside here. But unfortunately, it was closed on the day I visited. Do go and see inside the Jurassic Park too.
Well, That’s all about VOC park. It’s a great place for a one time visit if you are in Coimbatore. This park did have a lot of wild animals like tiger and bear back then. But, now they are maintaining the park with a few harmless animals.
