  • One of the most loved places in Chandigarh. Great views, clean and well managed place. You can also do boating here. The place also has an eating point with options available. People come here for morning or evening walks, boating, experience the lake or just to chill out. Ample Parking space but don't be surprised if the parking and the place is super crowded. Parking can be managed better. A nice place for a relaxing morning or evening.

  • Attraction: Lake, Boating, Adventurous Tourist Spot: Yes Open Hours: 6 AM to 7 PM Parking: Yes Beautiful landscape in "The City Beautiful". This is one of the best places in Chandigarh for Morning and Evening walk for children, young and elderly. It has also got small adventures such as - Sketching, Crazy Cars, Giant Wheel, Camel ride, and Boating. It also has various food options and many items to purchase as soviegnour.
  • Best destination for fitness joggers, hanging out with friends and Chandigarh's mecca for flashy cyclists. The ultimate ramp walk for fitness freaks and a must for tourists. Freshens you up . Best known for spectacular sunrise(from front side) and sunset(from peace garden). Preferably visit early morning to avoid crowded pathways.
