Kankaria Lake is one of the biggest lakes in Ahmedabad. A lakefront was developed around it which has many public attractions like zoo, toy train, kids city, tethered balloon ride, water rides and water park, food stalls and entertainment facilities. Kankaria Carnival is a week long festival being held here in last week of December. Many cultural, art and social activities are organised during carnival. It is located in the southern part of the city, in Maninagar area.
Kankaria lake today has become an activity center for tourists and many facilities for that purpose has come up; like the toy-train alongside the lake, 'Bal Vatika' with different outdoor toys for children, a boat club with boating facility for the tourists, a zoo and a natural history museum. The colourful lights along the lake and the colourful fountains in the Nagina Wadi give the lake a marvelous and grand look in the dark of the night.
Attraction :The lists of attractions at the Lakefront do not end here. You can now enjoy a bird’s eye view of Ahmedabad city from a helium balloon. The water bubble or the Zorb Ball is equally popular.
