An extensive jogging path encircles the lake, offering a great opportunity for those looking to keep fit, while a number of stalls sell street food and snacks. Bird-watchers should look out for migratory exotic birds, such as Siberian ducks or storks.

  • Nice place for an evening walk. Good view of the sunset. Families spend their evenings and weekends here. Boating facilities are available and is completely safe. Area has got a refreshment section, having all kinds of fast foods and beverages. Kids has got the play area. Lake is surrounded by the Rock garden on one side and a golf course on the other.
  • One of the most amazing places in Chandigarh - the city beautiful. No matter the time or date, you'll find this place likeable. Bad mood, good mood, any mood - this is the place for you. Maintained by Citco under utmost care. I personally love to come out here for long walks and the view. It never fails to uplift my mood. The sunrise and sunset are the most coveted times. It's a popular joint amongst people of all ages. There are many activities available here like boating, cycling, bird watching, jogging track, work-out spots, etc. A couple of eateries and souvenir shops are also present.
  • One of the famous tourist places in Chandigarh which is a must visit atleast for once. A great place, clean, well maintained and safe. You won't feel that something wrong might happen or anything like that. Best for your evening strolls. A nice place to cool yourself up with the cool breeze from the water body. Has lots of things to do, lots of things to eat. So yeah you must visit there. You won't regret it.
