“Beautiful . . . Wow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We visited Rawal Lake and Lake View Point 3rd Time. It is really very good experience especially boating and water scooter in the Lake. A very large Park is a good place to visit with Family and Friends. Play Land for kids is very interesting and kids really enjoyed there. At Lake View Point there is very good view of flowering plants, greenery and mesmerizing Lake. Restaurant for refreshment also have good variety. Overall good place for families to picnic.

“It is a good place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

The area around the lake has been planted with flowering trees and laid out with gardens, picnic spots, and secluded paths. The terraced garden and the lake are used for picnics, fishing and boating. The highest point in the garden offers a panoramic view of the lake, Margalla and Murree hills, Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

This is one the best family destinations in Islamabad.....as long as you visit the Lake View Park side which is located off the Murree Road. Other points are old, tired and boring.

The Lake View Park however has many activities with rides, restaurants and even quad biking (separately for adults and kids). This is one of the prime locations for tourists is Islamabad.

The dam is very beautiful and boat rides are available for hire. I noticed the Lake View Park side of the Rawal Dam is frequented by Korean and Chinese ex-pats also.

Rawal lake is situated in Islamabad. The place is worth visit. The park in Rawal lake is better maintained and has peaceful places to sit and enjoy the scenic views of the lake and Islamabad.

“Rawal lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This was beautiful. There was the boating part and the lake itself was more than peaceful. The gardens were very well maintained and the lawns and surrounding areas were picturesque.
