“The lake is worth a better restaurant”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

The nature is wonderfull but the place needs a better service and better food. You want to feel that you are in Bolu, the capital of culinary, but you can't actually.

“Only a short glimpse will be sufficient”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

During my childhood this artificial pond seemed to be impressive with evergreen surrounding flora and beautiful reflection on the water mirror. Today most of the grass around is replaced with cement blocks and the walking road is paved with brick dust. The visitors will be constantly subjected to the noise of shouting picnicker families and religious preaches broadcasted to the public from the nearby mosque. Not the perfect place to relax... Lake Golcuk is maybe wort to have a quick look (there is an entrance fee), but that's all.

“Beautiful Lake!”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

The lake is beautiful and is not var from the Istanbul-Ankara Highway (about 9 km only). It is located near to Golcuk Suburb and is visited by many tourists (majority are Turks) especially weekends. It is a nice spot for picknic and stroll and would difinitely recommend it for visit!
