Maitri Garden

Bhilai Maitri Garden

Zoo in Mairtri Garden

fountain

A zoo cum children's park, maintained by the Bhilai Steel Plant. The highlights of the Zoo are exotic animal and avian species, lake, toy trains and others. The musical fountain, situated on the island in the artificial lake in Maitri Garden is a dynamic spectacle which responds to the music in a way that interprets the style and rhytmm of the musical performance. As the music plays, jets of water shoot in the air, twist, sway, pirouette, pulse, drum and skip with the beat - each movement lit by brilliant colours. 2 shows are organized here in the evenings, on alternate days. White tigers are the main attraction of the zoo. Every year a flower show is organized here.
