Over the past few weeks, we’ve been hearing about several waterbodies in Delhi that will be renovated and brought back to their former glory. Last week, news emerged about reviving the dying Bhalswa lake and now, the latest water body to undergo a face-lift is Sanjay Lake. A massive water reservoir, it has been left neglected for a long time and with the help of the renovation, the goal is to make it a profitable tourist spot.

What’s the update?

As a part of the face-lift coming to Sanjay Lake, the goal is to completely change the look and feel of the place. With loads of new facilities and attractions, Sanjay Lake is all set to become the glorious water-body that it once was. Situated near Mayur Vihar, this will become one of the biggest recreational hubs in the city.

In the past as well, the place has been a huge recreational hub. With the addition of all the new facilities, we’re excited to see how it will bring about a change in the touristy habits of people in the city.

What’re the recreational facilities?

The authorities have big plans for the upcoming renovation of the lake. For one, the entire water-body will be thoroughly cleaned out, making way for boating and aquatic life to thrive once again. Since the lake is a massive 170 acres, this should take some time. Apart from that, the 53 acres of land which is composed of the green area will have other recreational activities coming up.

Some of the major upcoming attractions in the area include an amphitheater, walking tracks, cycling tracks and landscaping. Other than that, the green area around the lake will also consist of observation decks, lake view plazas, a food court, a tranquil meditation garden and a duck house. To add to that, the lake will have a sculpture area and an artiste court, which are spaces that encourage artistic expression in a natural setting.

We’re glad to see that so many natural gems of the national capital are being brought back to life. Sure, the task is herculean and will take up to or even over an year but it’s a start and that’s what we’re hoping for.
