Big plans for Lake Zone II in Bhubaneswar, only if Land encroachment can be removed


The water body of ‘Lake Zone-2’ situated between the Sachivalaya Marg and Janpath that touches the Bayababa Mutt, Unit-9 Colony and Central University at its edges would be designed on the lines of BDA city center and would have facilities for visitors across all age groups.

There would be four entrances and four exits and a large shopping complex consisting of 200 stalls. The shopping complex would house a food court, handicrafts stalls and a shopping mall. The new park would also have adequate space for parking of two and four-wheeler vehicles, water fountain, boating arrangements, medicinal garden, orchid garden etc.

As per the new plan, the 29 acre land of ‘Lake Zone-2’ would be divided into three different categories such as kid zone, youth zone and old age zone and would have facilities accordingly.

The kid zone would have station toys, swings, a fountain, stair games, water games, party venue and an amphitheater. The youth zone would feature dense bushes, fragrant flowers, water games and a cafeteria with seating arrangement that would allow privacy. The old age zone would house a library, resting benches and a jogging tracks.
