MSN's 8 green cities of India
The steel city is a model of harmonius co-existence of industry and environment, with acres of verdant parks and gardens dotting the city and has been labeled a "green city" quite rightly so.
Jamshedpur is surrounded by the beautiful Dalma Hills. Nestled at the foot of the hills is the vast Dimna Lake, about 11 km from the city. The scenic beauty is enchanting. The hills in the distance, the clear blue rippling waters and the greenery make Dimna Lake an ideal retreat.
Within the city, numeroud park and greens provide an oasis. The Jubilee Park is a favourite haunt of the local people and tourists are also enraptured by the sheer beauty of the park spread over 225 acres. The manicured lawns are dotted with branching trees like ashok, trimmed and well-shaped bushes, myriad- coloured flowers and fountains.
Greenery apart, Jamshedpu is also one of the few environment friendly city in India. Recycling plants save on water and new treatment plants keep the rivers sparkling. Efforts are made to raise consciousness and concern for the environment among residents.
