Boukornine National Park

Boukornine National Park (French: Parc national de Boukornine) is a national park in northern Tunisia.

The 1,939-hectare (4,790-acre) park was established on 12 February 1987.[1] It is very near to the town of Hammam-Lif and just 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) to the capital city of Tunis.[2]

At the park, one can find flowers like the Persian cyclamen and animals like the Etruscan shrew (the world's smallest known mammal) and the Mountain gazelle.[2]

The park is the site of Jebel Boukornine (a 576-metre mountain) and the Aïn Zargua spring, as well as an ecomuseum.[2]
