Sarthana Surat Nature Park is also known as Dr. Shyamaprasad Mukherjee Zoological Garden. Nature Park Sarathana is situated at the North-East corner of Surat City, which is approachable by Surat Kamrej Road.
Prior to 1984, there was no zoo in South Gujarat. The people of Surat city and surrounding villages, especially the students of the schools and colleges were deprived of first-hand knowledge about wildlife. Keeping in view above, the Surat Municipal Corporation has prepared a plan for setting up a Nature Park.
