Visit an artificial lake dating to the colonial period of the area and feel the ambient of lush green gardens and scenic hills reflecting in the surface of the water at Ward's Lake. The story goes that an inmate at a local prison requested some creative release, bored with the labor camp routine, and, when granted the permission, created this lake some 100 years ago. Participate in local activities of swimming and boating. Enjoy a picnic with family and friends among fountains, gardens, and trails. Feed the fish while standing on the bridge on the lake or from rentable boats.

Beautiful park present near police bazaar which is heart of the city. It has a big man made lake with boating facility and a restaurant. The lawns are green and there are some cherry trees also inside the park. The cherry trees blossom between last week of October & second week of November. There is also a wooden bridge on the lake which makes the more attractive.
