Allen Forest Zoo
The Allen Forest Zoo, also known simply as the Kanpur Zoo, is the largest open green space in Kanpur. The zoo was founded by Sir Allen, a botanist and a member of the British Indian Civil Service, and opened to the public in 1971. The grounds encompass a gorgeous lake, and a forest full of ancient trees. This zoo is home to a broad range of mammals, such as rare big cats like White Asian tigers, Asiatic lions, leopards and jaguars, and a range of monkeys and primates like chimpanzees, baboons, and orangutans. The zoo also houses an aquarium, as well as life-size sculptures of prehistoric dinosaurs. Those looking to explore the natural beauty of the grounds can join the zoo’s staff on regularly conducted nature walks and a variety of other outdoor recreation activities.
