Remember the good old days when you’d sit at the edge of Bhalswa lake with friends, family or a loved one and gaze out into the open? The sight seemed magnificent and almost nothing would compare to it. Well, the younger ones of you may not remember because for the past few years, the beautiful lake, also one of Delhi’s largest water bodies became more of a garbage dump than a natural tourist spot.

Now, the authorities aim to bring this lake back to its former glory and convert it into a tourist spot once again.

What’s the update?

In a bid to make Bhalswa lake a tourist attraction once again, the authorities plan to start laser shows, boating and a slew of other activities in the lake and the area surrounding it as well. Covering a massive area of almost 84 acres, the sight was truly something to behold.

Over the course of time however, people stopped caring for the lake and soon afterwards, the lake was left neglected and a waste basket for all the dairies and industries at Bhalswa. In due course, the place lost its charm and became a forgotten relic of the past.

Now, things are all set to take a change for the better as the National Green Tribunal has ordered authorities to keep a check on this lake and ensure that animal as well as industrial waste is no longer discharged here. Experts still have hope for the lake and have stated that with the right methods, this nature biome can still be salvaged.

Once the lake is back to its former glory, the authorities plan to make it a better, more tourist friendly place with all sorts of activities and attractions. For one, the lake will have sound and water shows paired with laser shows as well. This is going to be the biggest highlight of them all.

Apart from just that, the plan is to procure several boats that will allow for boating activities for visitors. Additionally, there will also be points for fishing, which will be a bit removed from the main tourist area. To ensure that adjoining areas are not crowded up, the authorities will also set up a parking area which will be a bit out of the way from the lake and the adjoining park.
