Very clean(:D compared to old kankaria) Many new animals & birds in zoo. Wasnt able to visit the aquarium but the laser+fountain show was full of fun. Enjoyed the speedboat ride. I would suggest that you take the whole day & visit old ahmedabad,including half day for kankaria itself.. Have fun.

We reached Kankaria Lake in the evening at about 8 PM. The lake is open till 11 PM. We walked round the lake which is about 2.5 KM. The music aired through the sound system is quite enjoyable. We had a pleasant experience. We wish to visit the lake once again.

Kankaria Lake is for everyone. Families with kids, old people, young couples, rowdy friends, it has something for everyone. Its a place to chill out for all with a very nominal entry fee. Smoking and chewing tobacco is prohibited inside the lake premises and the security do a great job of keeping them out.
