A walk around the lake in the heart of the city will net you a rich haul of birds. Peaceful well defined walking track around lake makes it easy for all age groups to enjoy the peace and quiet while also getting some exercise in.

Long stretch of pathway giving views of the lake surround the Kukkarahalli Lake. A great place for some quiet time, bird watching and even photography. Not sure about the timings but it is usually closed during afternoons.
