“Excellent place for family visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Our family visited Kankaria lake on a weekday late afternoon. With the zoo, mini train and all other facilities, the place was loads of fun for my son. From my visit, I can safely say that one needs to avoid Sunday and other public holidays to avoid crowds

“Fun for Kids of Every Age”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

The lake is lit at night - and the lights are garish colors that obscure the antiquity of the stones. This attraction is 500 years old, and you can see that on close inspection. It's ringed by a quite train you can ride and there are several clusters of food and beverage stands. It is a pleasant place to stroll, cool in the evenings. A tethered hot air balloon offers rides on one side of the like. A circus is installed at one vertex of the park. It's a hoot. And there's no danger of getting run over by anything but a laughing child.

“place to enjoy for the masses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

its good to see there is some place in the city which has so many things to enjoy in a single place and yet so cheap that every class of people can afford the fun. there is a zoo, a very large fish equarium, boating, toy train, so many food stalls, a lazer and fountain show., hot balloon ..many more... this place though is in the centre of old city but a very big one to incorporate a large crowd.
