Additional Information


Hongshan Forest Zoo is located in the north of Nanjing Xuanwu Mountain and is built on the mountain. There are three mountains in the park. It is very close to the Nanjing Railway Station and was built by the original Nanjing Xuanwu Lake Zoo. The park is large and there are many kinds of animals. In the bird zone, you can see flamingos, ostriches and pheasants. Visitors also look forward to the green and white peacocks in the Peacock Garden. There is a talking grey parrot in the parrot pavilion and a veteran zoo animal. In addition, there is a children's playground, especially suitable for playing with children.
