4.4
#1 of 127 in Parks in Gujarat
The second largest lake in Ahmedabad, Kankaria Lake hosts a renovated pedestrianized lakefront, a vibrant hub of activities and entertainment. Built in the 15th century by Sultan Qutbuddin, in 2008 the polygon-shaped body of water underwent a regeneration project to develop numerous attractions, including an amusement park, children's play center, and a mini golf course. A walkway to the lake's center leads to a lively garden, hosting numerous food vendors and laser displays. Circling the lake, a mural park features some 292.6 sq m (3,150 sq ft) of colorful murals on pink sandstone, depicting the history of Gujarat.

  • Fun place to visit whether you are living in ahemdabad or a visitor there. Easy to reach visitors as it is just 3.4 km from Railway station. This place is worth for every age group it has toy train and children park for children and boating and rides for adults. It also includes fish aquarium and butterfly park too. This is not the end it has many more things to enjoy go and experience them.
  • Great place to have fun, has a lots joy rides and food stalls. Boating in the lake is nice, with laser show that happens at night. A toy train(adults and children, both allowed) moves around the entire lake. Has a nominal fee of Rs.13 per head.
  • The cleanliness of the whole premises was up to the mark, couldn't find a rag or any wrappers around. The tiles anti skid so walking and jogging is a piece of cake. There's a chowpaty kind of shops on the right side of the entrance and a hotel and a snack truck on the left. All around the lake there were trees and they blended with construction, this added to the ambience. All around the lake the light posts are fitted with speakers on which old hindi songs are played the whole time. Speakers are on the each light post giving a 3D effect. As we walked to the right of the entrance we found a amusement park attached to the lake. The park had 5 exiting rides for the adults and some rides for the kids. The disco ride was a thrilling experience. There's a roller coaster not to long but mediocre. The other three rides are amazing! After the thrilling park experience coming back to the calm lake was a feel good moment. Cool and calm atmosphere was nice to absorb in from the hassle of the city.at last don't forget to watch musical fountain theatre at the center of the lake 🌋🌋
