This place is a patch oasis in a city which is otherwise crowded. This is the first time I went there. It was raining in the morning time. So many kids were playing football even in the rain. Some senior members were watching and some were cheering for them. Such a lovely sight to watch.

It's new look and renovation makes it a very attractive spot for tourists, nature-lovers, bird-watchers and walkers. The lake-water has been cleared of trashes and it looks clean and fresh. However, don't try swimming here without supervision, as it may turn out deadly because of some weeds that will catch your legs and tighten up. The only way to get around It is not panic, go down the water after catching breath, unwrap the weeds slowly, and come out safe. The only part that needs to be changed is hollering by walkers and getting rid of morning 'addas' that has become popular to some, at the cost of breach of peace for others.

The natural lakes of Kolkata. A wonderful place of green. A superb place to walk and laze around. The recent renovations have made the Lakes even better.

It’s a beautiful place to visit with family, but dangerous if you are alone and particularly girl. I visited there with my didi yesterday, we were sitting by our selves near the lake amongst many other people. Suddenly two guys approached us started staring at us making us nervous and suspicious ( they were not wearing mask even though its covid time). We asked what was the issue since neither me nor my sister knows them. The crowd around us could see that we were getting scared, and when we tried to walk out of the place, the guys cane around and said it was a prank. A prank we were never part of, we did not spot any microphone or any camera around, then what exact kind of prank it was other than just disturbing two sisters having normal conversations at a lake? Although it has security around who would not let people take water and all with them inside of the area, none of them are bothered to check if things like this happen in daylight in a very public place. I was scared, my didi freaked out more than me to be honest, and i did not know what exactly i should have done at that point of time, because I don’t think that in this day such behaviour can be considered as a prank? I mean there is actually no women safety, and if we speak up we are being shutted by the people saying its a prank? Mind it, it was not at all funny, the way they stared at us blankly. I don’t know what should we have done at that situation so we left that place. But I would want mostly females to be prepared for this kind of behaviour there. Also i am 24 years old my ofcouse my didi is older than me, just so that you know the situation.

The ambiance is very good but in the evening the area goes completely unsafe. The goons and robbers come here for unlawful activities.
The Police of Lake Police Station and Dhakuria Police Station search for their prey. They do not detain a goon, on the other hand they try to molest a female traveler attacking her boyfriend. It is their daily duty to snatch moneybag and valuable belongings of the couple.
In most of the cases, the unmarried couple do not complain for further harassment.
Some incidents have come to notice that the boyfriend had been detained in the Police van and the girl was sexually molested by Police.

Rabindra Sarovar, known as Ballyganj Lake or Dhakuria Lake, was once an open place for evening stroll.
Brick built constructions have been erected destroying the major parts of the open park.
Now the place is full of criminals who try to frighten the young couples to squeeze money. There are lots of hawkers in the area who are actually anti socials.
Police are also engaged in robbing the couples in the evening.
I suggest all young people to avoid the place for their safety.

This man made lake was previously called, Dhakuria Lakes. It stretches from Dhakuria Bridge on one side and the Tollygunge Railway Bridge on the other. There is a quaint little island connected by a hanging bridge and a whole lot of rowing clubs surrounding the lakes.

The mornings and evenings are the times when the lakes are most populated. Morning walkers, evening walkers, lovers, the poet or that lonely guy....all throng to the lakes for a breath of fresh air. You may also encounter members of the 'Laughing Club', laughing away to glory as part of the 'live healthy' program.

The Rabindra Sarovar lake is a beautiful and green oasis(its huge).A great place for walks or just idling on benches(if u so desire)4-5 paddle boats not in the best of health can be hired to go boating till 6pm everyday.The place closes down at 9pm.On weekends a recently started musical fountain is good.Entry is free..the musical fountain is not synchronized with music but still a good display.(timing saturday&sunday post 6:30)about 20 mins show.The place could do with some maintence of the water body.One place where the Kolkata Municipal Corporation is taking interest.The winter of 2012-2013 they helped organise some great cultural programmes(hope the tradition continues this winter)
On a recent visit my son was charmed with the huge number of fireflies near the lake waters(a rare sight in cities)
Location:Opposite Menoka Cinema
Nearest Metro station:Kalighat(5 mins walk)
well connected with buses and yellow cabs
