Noida finally got its first musical fountain which was opened for the general public on Tuesday as part of Biodiversity Park in the city’s Sector 91. The local administration has announced that there will be no entry fee for visitors.
The musical fountain has been opened in Sector 91, Noida which is some 15-minute drive from Sector 37 and Sector 18. Since there will be no entry fee for the visitors, only a limited number of people will be allowed in the fountain.
The limitation on the entry of people has been put in view of COVID-19 pandemic and is likely to be revoked once the infection is over.

There will be no entry fee for visitors but only a limited number of people will be allowed as of now.”
