Jurug Solo Zoo also known as Taru Jurug Animal Park is one of the tourist destinations in the city of Solo. in the school holiday season, usually this place is crowded to visit even sometimes to make you who come in trouble looking for a parking space for those who bring private vehicles. This animal park used to be just an ordinary city park located on the banks of the Bengawan Solo. But after the death of Pakubuwono the X and Sriwedari Park which was the place where the animals were originally not maintained anymore, then the animals were moved to Taru Jurug to guarantee the lives of the animals and became the city park that was renamed Taru Jurug Animal Park.
This park is intended for family tourism so that the facilities are increasingly equipped such as fauna and flora collections, mosques, children’s playgrounds, mini trains and others. On certain days in this park there are also reog performances, music shows, syawalan and Gethek festivals which are held once a year.

Besides animals, we can also enjoy a variety of flora here, for example pine trees, trembesi trees, flamboyant trees, acacia trees and several other tree species that will make you feel more comfortable when you are in this one animal park. And the tall trees are also useful for making animals feel they live in their natural habitat. In this animal park there is also a monument to pay homage to the legendary keroncong artist Gesang.
