This is a manmade lake in Bangalore, situated in the western part of the city in the middle of the suburbs of Malleshwaram, Vyalikaval and Sadashiva Nagar. This lake offers itself as a great scenic attraction of the city with an area of about 15 ha (37.1 acres). Constructed by Col. Richard Hieram Sankey of the Madras Sappers Regiment, in 1882, to meet the water supply demands of Bangalore, this area today looks picturesque and definitely deserves a visit.

  • Best place for a jog/walk. Well maintained. Some renovation work going on now on the right side of entrance(as of 11/25/18), might look better once done. My nephew(when he was 3 yrs old) just LOVED the overall ambience when the park lights were switched on in the evening(at 06:00pm).

  • Wonderful place to get some fresh air and exercise. Weekends are super crowded especially in the evenings so i would prefer going during weekdays to take walks. Love the ambience. Very clean and well maintained. Free gym equipment is also in good working condition.

  • Just enjoy the stunning views either by sitting on the bench beside the exquisite lake or you can even walk by the walking track beside it this is a perfect place for the one who want to get some fresh and just relax. Recommended if you have never visited this place 👌

  • A very beautiful place surrounded by lake, nice place to spend time with friends, family and kids. For photography as well it's a nice place. It has one of the best sunset view in Bangalore. Eatables are not allowed in side the park which makes this place more clean.

  • Beautiful relaxing place to spend early mornings in bangalore. Relax. Jog. Play. Meditate. Fun time with friends. Anything you want. Peaceful place. Delight for photographers
