The highlights include an open-air theater, a Buddhist temple, an island with a mosque and a suspension bridge, and a safari garden.

  • Pretty good place. nice environment with lots of green :) good for a afternoon walk or hanging out with friends. if you are visiting in the afternoon you might struggle to get a bench to sit on as it gets crowded a bit. over all nice place. lakes are beautiful. not sure of boating is there or not. small fast food vendors are there for little afternoon snacks. transportation/communication is also good.
  • The lake is beautiful, and so is the area surrounding it. Perfect for taking morning and evening walks, or jogging and running. More or less a secluded place. Good for couples. But, couples need to be aware because prying eyes are everywhere. A major problem is that every now and then locals come and demand money from you for various useless reasons. And if you refuse, they threaten you. Their targets usually are couples trying to enjoy their time. So, be aware of that. Apart from this, a nice place to spend some time close to nature. Would recommend for bird watching or butterfly watching. Lots of birds to be found in and around the lake.
  • number of people come here for walk in morning and evening time . it's a perfect place for hangout in south kolkata. families on a picnic, photographers, tourists, students, young lovers and joggers gather there during the day .the lake is very beautiful and so it's surrounding area. lots of birds can be found here.
  • Very good place... You can go there to enjoy your evening.... You can spend here 1-3hours....The lake is beautiful.... From here you can aslo enjoy the sunset...
  • This walking track around the lake is best in Kolkata. For the last 3 years the lake area has been upgraded by fencing it to keep nuisance makers at bey. A walk around the lake in the morning is like taking a nature walk with more than century old trees and all sorts of migratory birds chirping. I love my morning walk here.
