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.
