Spread over 22 acres in Udhagamandalam town is another tranquil spot near the Ooty Lake, that is home to a vast number of deer. About six acres of the lake have been used to develop the park. The park was inaugurated in 1986 and is maintained by the Tamil Nadu Forest Department. Although the name suggests that the park is exclusively for deer, the Deer Park is also home to a wide variety of birds and rabbits. This is one of the high-altitude animal parks in India and is easily accessible by road.
The Sambar and Chital species of deer can be found in the park. The Deer Park in Ooty is a haven for Nature lovers as it is wrapped in a chilly climate and surrounded by enticing flora and fauna.
