Attraction details
Reviewed October 11, 2013

I have been to Kankaria many times being a Amdavadi and have always had a refreshing experience there. There are so many attractions around it which provide natural flavour, knowledge and fresh air for the visitors. Its a must visit for all those who visit Ahmedabad or are even living there.

It gives a feel of relaxation sitting besides the lake... it gives a fab look during night coz of the light effects... the one attracted me the most was the horse cart ride...reminds f our childhood days...

This place built around kankaria lake is a must visit... if nothing else than at least for a walk... health enthusiast or nature enthusiast or both tend to come early morning at kankaria between 4 a.m to 8 a.m when the entry is free... they do not charge at all... and anyways after 9 a.m the entry fee is mere 10 rupees for an adult and 5 rupees for kids below 10 yrs...
they have various attractions within the park and that's separately chargeable... you will specially enjoy zoo, then there's this area where you have Ahmadabad eye ride, tree walk, golf course, mud car driving, etc... i would say begin your day there post lunch around 3 p.m... begin with activities like zoo and kids city... by then it will be evening... suggest you to take ahmadabad eye ride twice... once in daylight of afternoon/evening... then again in the night...do not forget to click pictures thru your slr/mobile/digital cams....
toy train is also an awesome ride for children and people who cannot walk much... but if possible make sure you walk all thru its fun...
you also have temples... you will find games for kids... adventure sports... all the food joints/food court... they will insist on you to go and have their food... they will actually call you loudly and force you to sit...
they also have aquarium inside... you will also find patches of lawns... early morning people tend to walk on green lawns bare foot... suggest you to carry good cash if you want to try all the activities... not too expensive but definitely with so many number of activities its better to carry cash.. its safe... they have trash bins placed at frequent intervals... its a very clean place to be at... and if you are not the one interested in the activities.. do go and just have a stroll in the late evenings... they also have water sports like speed boats, etc...

This lake is very huge and in the centre of the city. We went in the evening and the lake is illuminated nicely. The entrance ticket is cheep. But we can't do anything after entering there with that ticket. We have to buy separate ticket for every place to visit as well as every event to participate. Those are costly. We bought tickets for laser show and musical fountain. It is good but too much mosquitoes. We tried speed boat. It is too costly and they took for just 2 mins in the lake as a ride. Disappointing. We entered through gate 6 and the toy train will start from exactly opposite to this gate and we have to walk for atleast a kilometer to reach the station. So we couldn't try that.
