“Lake of Kolkata”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Had visited in the evening, in the dark silence. Place is quite quiet. Liked the silence sitting at a bench far from the crowd as always. The water is calm . Was with a friend. The place's calm had gotten into me.

“Rabindra Sarovar”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Water body and grounds in south Kolkata, maintenance average by Indian standards, below average by western. Still, enjoyable. i live quite close by, and go walking there almost every morning. Just walking around, no public boating or restaurants. If you can get a friend to take you to one of the rowing clubs, it's a treat sitting out in the open and eating and drinking. Be careful of mosquitoes after dark. Best time to visit 6 AM to 10 AM, 4 PM to 6 PM

“Unsafe place in the evening”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

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.

we can see kids practicing football, cricket boat race, cycle stunts & music around this place. You would find a lot of couples near you if you visit this place.
