“Nice calm place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

It is one of the main attractions of Chandigarh. As you enter through the main entrance, the place is very crowded. Walk along and move to the more calm place along the lake. It is much beautiful and scenic there.
Lots of ducks in the lake.
But, people through a lot of plastic in the lake, which need to be banned.

“The Lake that was”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

The Lake used to be more of a lake and less of a place where people went for rides and eats.

Nevertheless, it is a very popular destination for the locals to have an evening out, go for a walk, take the kids for some rides and eat some snacks. The walk is good, one sees lots of folks young and old walking and at times jogging along the sides. Well maintained, it is the perfect place for an evening out with the family or by yourself.

I wish the authorities would take steps to get the lake back in shape, clear up the weeds and mud flats. every year members of the public get together to voluntarily remove silt, but it seems to be a losing crusade.

If you are going over a weekend expect parking hassles: though there is plenty of parking nearby, it never seems enough!

“Serene!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

A beautiful place worth visiting early morning or late evening. A lovely place for a morning walk, with health conscious people all around, cute little ducks quacking. And a calm and realxing experience if you sit there for a while in the late evening.

“Good View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Its beautiful and clean. Nice to sit under the winter sun and have coffee etc. There were duck shaped boats which you can enjoy and take a ride in. Nothing spectacular but do if you have time otherwise you can give it a miss
