Chetpet EcoPark, Chennai

#9 of 27 in Parks in Chennai
Park · Hidden Gem · Jogging Path
The Rs 42 crore project was inaugurated by Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa through video conferencing on Saturday, 27th Feb'16 and is already panning out into a stress-busting destination par none.

Entry Fees: Rs 25 for a single adult and Rs 10 for a child.

Those planning to make use of the 1.5 km walkway regularly could purchase a monthly pass for Rs 200. Or a half yearly one for Rs 1,000 and a yearly pass for Rs 2,000. As evidenced by the excited murmurs and selfie taking youngsters hanging around the jetty, boating and fishing are novelties, visitors are willing to shell out money — Rs 50 for a boat ride and Rs 300 for angling.

The lake has been seeded with a wide variety fish. For those eager to learn fishing, training facilities have also been instated with instructors. The fishing area is also separated from the hustle and bustle of the large park complex.

The park also has an amphi-theatre, food zone serving pastries, puffs, tea,coffee, chaats, ice creams, water, popcorn etc and a seafood mobile van, 3D movie hall and a children’s play area. All these will be open to the public between 9 am to 8 pm, all days except Tuesday. Walking pass holders can enter the park from 4.30 am.

  • This is a beautiful park with a lake. People come here in mornings and evenings for walking, jogging and running. The park atmosphere is peaceful to sit down with a cup of hot coffee and read books...  more »
  • Boating, 5D show, VR show, etc. are good. But, Aquarium is not worth to watch with money. We can spend atleast 2 to 3 hours here It is run by govt. fisheries dept.  more »
  • A much needed green space in the heart of the city. The place charges a ₹25 entry fee for adults and parking as well. But thw beautifully planned park and well maintained tracks make up for it. The track is rather large and takes about 10 minutes of brisk walking to complete. There is a separate monthly members only section of the track that is less congested and has lots of ducks and other birds roaming around. Definitely recommended if you love nature and long walks.
  • A nice scenic place for a break from mundane work. The place is right in middle of the busiest parts of Chennai, yet there is a serinity in it. Easily accessible by Metro the place has a long walking track with a small play area for kids. A well maintained place with Wheel chair accessibility for the needy. Every one have something to enjoy for themselves here.
