Alipore Zoo information
Kolkata’s 16-hectare zoo first opened in 1875. The spacious lawns and lakeside promenades are very popular with weekend picnickers (hence all the rubbish). Grass is so high in the moated Bengal Tiger enclosure that it’s hard to spot the animals but it’s better than several more confining cages and the aviaries whose thick rusty-black wire-mesh rather obscures viewing.
