“Charm lost”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Ward's Lake and Hydari Park was once the most important tourist attraction of Shillong and being centrally located it was convenient to visit. It continues to have the boat rides and schools of fishes but the fringes of the lake are not maintained and are filled with water hyacinths and weeds.

“Little water body of east”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

On a sunny day go and lay down and roll, you will go back to your childhood. It gives you fine feeling and nature's best gift of pine of khasi hills which you may never forget,

“Piece of greenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014 via mobile

I have been to shillong many a times and I visit ward lake everytime. It's centrally located in the town and just a five minute walk from police bazaar.
Like most of the lakes I have been to... there is boating. Walking around the lake is nicely maintained. You should look aout for couples having fun or dating...avert them eyes. The lake has a lot of fishes.. you can feed them. It also has a lot of ducks...so I find it cheerful.
My favourite past time is take a couple of can beets and just chill on the grass beside the lake. Serinity right in the middle of the city. Enjoy.
