Kankariya lake is a place for family fun. You can enjoy different ride on Kankariya. The Kankariya zoo is very famous in Ahmedabad. Lot's of people visit daily in Kankariya.

Government. Made efforts to make it as standard but it's very easy to create but very tough to maintain. It's local attraction to the people but very tough to make business as tourism. Don't get international standards.

It's very good place to enjoy but couples make indecency and embarrassing to families. So its not good way to suggest for Families/Kids. No entry fee, but lots of places to see which are payable. It's just one time visit. Nothing more special.

I've been to Kankaria Lake several years ago, and this time around, I could see the efforts local administration has made in beautifying it. It is a very happening place, especially in the evenings and on Sundays, and there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy.

A polygonal lake almost a mile in circumference, it was constructed in 1451 by Sultan Qutb-ud-Din. In the centre of the lake is an island-garden with a summer palace known as Nagina Wadi. The lake is now a popular recreational centre and is surrounded by parks, 'Bal Vatika', children's gardens, a boat club, natural history museum and a zoo.

Scooter boats are thrilling. Clean and maintained premises. Too large an area to see totally. Well equipped with food stalls & toilets.
