Spend a lazy afternoon in midst of nature
Feb 2021
Karanji Lake located near the heart of the city has been extensively renovated and is rather well maintained with greenery and walkaways. The entrance to the park has ample (paid) parking space for visitors. The park has a nominal entrance fee used for maintaining the facilities.

A couple of attractions worth a mention

* Lookout tower - There is a streel lookout-tower adjacent to the lake. By climbing up, you can enjoy a panoramic view of Mysuru and the lake area.

* Boating on the lake - Paddle boats are available to rent at a reasonable price. You can rent one and go boating around the lake.

The park was ok
Dec 2019
The park has a good collection of trees but otherwise it was a bit of a let down. The butterfly garden does not have any butterflies. The lake is good to see from a distance - we did not go close or even to the viewing tower as we have young children. There are the following which are nice: a small orchid collection, an aviary (with roosters, peacocks/peahens/parrots/cranes), children's play area with birds on display. Otherwise nothing much to see. Nice thing to note is that they take a deposit when you carry plastic or food inside the park and that is refunded if you show that you have brought all the stuff back - small initiative to keep it plastic free.

Neatly Maintained Park with a Lake and Birds watch
Dec 2019
I had been to Karanji Lake on 25th Dec, it was a neatly maintained park. It has entrance fees and also if you are taking any plastic they will charge you Rs.10 per items and that will be returned back if you show them on your return.

Good Lake which has boating facility. ROW and Peddling are available.

Also there is a small birds sanctuary where lost of peacock can be viewed.

There is a good amount of place for KIDS to play...

Some one who is interested to have their own food, can bring them and have in the restricted food consumption area.

Overall it is a beautiful maintained park.

Peaceful park

If you want a break from palaces and shops, this is a good place to go. The big aviary is good and they have brolgas (sarus cranes) in the adjacent pen.
Nearby is a bird-viewing tower where we saw Brahminy Kites fishing on the lake.

Excellent place for a self paced visit
Nov 2019
The place has everything for a relaxed evening with family . Kids park , boating , green meadows , small snack options . etc . Its not allowed to carry plastic inside . They'll put stickers and keep a ta on all plastic items . Good practice I would say .

The aivary where peacocks roam freely is a USP !

Beautiful place to spend with family and friends. Here you can see various types of without any cages between you and bird as both of us will be in a huge cage. Here kids can play around in the park and we can also go for boating ( have to pay extra charges other than entry fee ) . Good place to have an evening wall . Nice and peaceful atmosphere. Snacks can be bought from the stalls inside the park. Mysore zoo and mall of Mysore is nearby
