Its a blessing to the city.. the calm of this lake is experienced best during the monsoon on a drizzly day... the sight of this lake is just so beautiful and calm especially in the monsoon that one can spend hours just gazing at it. there is a beautifully made promenade alongside a long stretch of the lake where one...

The lake is located in the most populated city then too it is very calm and peaceful place. One more amazing thing is that it is very clean. It is also surrounded by interesting places like IIt Bombay and Hiranandani..

It is good to stroll on the sides of lake Powai. The gardens are well maintained and the area is clean. The crowd around is decent and the views of Powai lake are very good.

The place is good before sunset, but lot of mosquitoes come from no where after the sunset. There is nothing much one can do here just walking besides the lake. many couples can be seen here, seems like one more lovers point in Mumbai.

One of the Lake which provides water to the entire city. Theres not much being done here. Though the promenade has been done recently so that people can walk, but the road - JVLR is so busy with traffic and noise that hardly one can take a walk in peace and silence. Best View is from Rennaissance. As there is... More

It is a lake with sooting view. If you are travelling around & stay near by place you can enjoy a stay for 30 min. As JVLR link road is beside this lake. Pollution level is high specially during office hour. Preferred time evening or morning. Lake is not maintained properly.

It is a nice getaway from the city even though it is in the city itself.. It is gud for a leisurely evening stroll with the cool breeze blowing.. Although there is nothing unique about this place..

Best by the evening.. A stroll on thE JVLR is enough to attract one towards the lake.. The cool breeze in the evenings and the night at one of the cleanest areas in Mumbai... One can also be quite satisfied travelling between Central & Western line with a glimpse and a breeze from the lake..
