  • This place covers a huge area with numerous botanical plans. It has a lake with access to boating. And an excellent play area for children to engage with rides.  more »
  • It's a nice place to visit. But when we visited in the last week of May , lake was completely dried up which is a kind of disappointment. I can say it's nice park with few birds(especially peacocks) ....  more »

  • Karanji Lake is one of the promising tourist place of attraction. Spanning in an area of about 90 acres, lake is noted for being home to a wide variety of indigenous and migratory birds. It consists of a boating point, children's corner, watchtower and India's largest walk-through aviary inhabited by a wide variety of birds, including peacock and geese, pheasants, swan,dove the aviary is the main highlight of Karanji Lake. A leisure walk around the lake promises to give you a few peaceful moments amidst the beautiful natural setting. Apart from these, this lake does offer to keep visitors entertained. For kids, there is a special children's corner to have fun. The boating provides you a great experience. Further at the watch tower you can watch a complete natural setting of the lake from above. The park authorities point to keep the greenery well maintained. Cleanliness is a great priority in this park. The entire park is declared as a plastic free zone. There is also medicinal plant garden. End of the park is butterfly garden..This spot can be visited with family or friends, although the park is most favorite spot for most couples. Its better to visit during rainy seasons as increased water level of lake and greenaries around provides you a great ambience. Its a most loved place for kids.
  • Kids love the place. I find the peacock park to be good. But the boats and cleanliness of lake have degraded substantially and needs a makeover
