Zoo Station China, Guangzhou

Zoo Station

Zoo Station, formerly planned to be called "Guangzhou Zoo South Entrance Station", is a station on Line 5 of the Guangzhou Metro in Guangzhou, China. It is located below the junction of Tianhe Road, Huanshi Road East and Shuiyin Road in the Yuexiu District, near the south gate of Guangzhou Zoological Garden. It opened on 28December 2009.

Zoo Station was not in the original plan but was added later, between Ouzhuang Station and Yangji Station after a request by Guangzhou citizens. Due to space limitations it is designed on three levels like Hong Kong MTR stations. The top underground floor is the concourse, below that is the platform for trains towards Wenchong Station and the lowest level is for trains towards Jiaokou Station. It is the first station in Guangzhou Metro system to have this Hong Kong-style multilevel design.
