  • Ambazari Lake is a picnic spot with dynamic activities. During weekends and evenings, tourists throng to the shore of this lake to have merry making and enjoyments. The lake offers great facilities for thrilling boating experiences. The garden nearby is a theme garden with many amenities for the enjoyment of the children. The major attraction here is the musical fountain dances with the gushing water in tune with the background music and multi-color lights. Many recreational facilities are available in the garden including mini train, swinging Columbus boat, see-saws and number of playing fields. The structure of a mammoth dinosaur at the entrance is very attractive to the visitors.
  • Best place in Nagpur for weekend holiday with family tour. Best location. Clean environment. Greenery is surrounding to water catchment. Beautiful nature. So many variety of fishes in the lake. Continuous fishing is going on by manual boats. So fresh fishes/ prowns are available to Nagpur markets.
  • Ambazari lake is a beautiful place to visit whenever you come to Nagpur, its a paradise for bird's, with full of natural beauty... And one important thing is.. fish ..the Tilapia..is found here..a really good place to visit once.
  • The only reason you must go here is to take beautiful sunsets from the Eastern banks of the Lake. Otherwise, don't waste time. There's a long path built on the embankment as a walkway! I feel it's not safe enough to walk there. It's bit scary!
  • Beautiful lake within Nagpur city and also has an attached garden. The backwaters area is great for bird watching and is being developed by the forest department as a bird sanctuary.
