The beautiful Ulsoor Lake, located in the city center, went through a phase of being thoroughly neglected before it was spruced up again. Boating is a possibility here. A visit to this lake can be combined with a visit to the nearby Gurudwara (Sikh house of worship), Bangalore’s largest.

Well , I stayed for 6.5 years near to this place and was a good place for a walk. Evening you will find little hesitant to take Elderly people because of the young couples crowd mostly. Good place for a walk and evening timeout in ulsoor lake, located near gurudwara and old madras road.

Considering the standards of public places in India and its cleanliness, Ulsoor lake was a pleasant surprise to me. My Bangalore office is located next to the lake and it gives a stunning view. Children play area and jogging tracks are well maintained. I must recommend a visit to Ulsoor lake on a Bangalore trip.

The lush green water in the lake remains you of a pond; but it's a large lake, in the Center of Ulsoor and close to MG Road. It is an excellent place for morning walk/ jog. You can also do boating in the evenings. The local military uses the lake for rowing practice. However, no one maintains the place well.... More

Durga Puja bhasan - a must watch for all Bengalees. Otherwise a flat lake not so crowded round the year.

one of the biggest lake in Bangalore and you enjoy a leisurely walk morning or evening .. there is a boating point as well where you can do a short boat ride .. but the long walk around the lake in a hectic city life, is just the destresser you need ..

A once great water body of Bangalore has been largely restored to its old self with no-nonsense approach. The trail around the lake is great for morning and evening walks. There is also a nice exercise area with cool exercise instruments. But the park closes by 6:30-7 PM and the guards will chase you out if you overstay. Enjoy the... More

As a kid, we used to come here for picnics, wildlife and ambiance, pristine air..etc. Now thanks to Bangalore's "superb" civic authorities, there's pollution galore and a stink that ensures that mosquitos dance around you. Useless Loos and closed down Lido. Missable despite the walking path made last year.

Visit this place every morning for an hours jog. This lake could be maintained better than what it is now
