The lake view point is a great addition to Islamabad. We entered from F1-tracks side entrance fee of Rs. 20 per head. There are lots of things to do. Motion rides worth Rs. 150 per head. Classic limo ride is awesome without band Rs. 50 per head with band Rs. 100 per head, takes two rounds all over the tracks. There are kiddy rides with package of Rs. 300 for 6 rides. The Dino cave is new addition Rs. 50 with 10 minutes movie clip. There are adequate toilet facilities and separate male and female prayer areas which is very nice as you spend ample amount of time there. Once you leave the tracks there are multiple food stalls with good variety of snacks. On one side there are carnival rides while on other side there is a huge walk in bird park. It is the worlds 3rd largest bird park with a huge variety of birds. Further ahead is the dam area where you can enjoy boating. We really enjoyed boat ride at night by the moonlight. On return theres a long wall to the parking area so you can take the train ride back. All in all its a must go place with lots of amusement and entertainment.

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.

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.

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.
