  • One of the most popular and lively place for tourists in Patna. A popular picnic spot among tourists and locals alike. Great variety of trees, animals and snakes.
  • Excellent place to walk, jog and do exercise. It has very long beautiful walking path under trees of different kinds. If you would like to walk in more natural way then there is jungle trail as well. Lots of residents of Patna come daily for morning walk but still Biological Park never feels conjusted. If you are in Patna then must visit Sanjay Gandhi Zoological Park in the morning.
  • One of the best tourist spot in Bihar this zoo attracts millions of visitor every year .Come here and you can see many animals along with different species of birds ,snakes and fishes.There are two main gates first one in Bailey Road and other in Rajbhawan road.Local people come here early in the morning to enjoy vast greenery and fresh air.I used to visit almost daily when i was in Patna.There is also a medicinal plant garden and a rose garden inside this amazing zoo.Visit it and you won't regret.
  • Awesome place n Memorable place in my carrier.Thank you. C.M Nitish Kumar Ji.
  • Zoo in town Patna is known as Lungs of Patna. Very well planned and divided into two sections namely botany section and zoology section. One of the many places to visit when in town. Well developed picnic site with natural scenic beauty. There exist a big pond in the middle where one can enjoy boat ride. Dont forget to visit aquarium, newly built aviary, snake house and children park. Park also provides battery ricksaw and train ride facility.
