Bhalswa Lake Delhi

Picnic Spots in Delhi - Saturday, March 14, 2020 9:04:09 AM

This horseshoe lake was Naturaly formed when the nearby River Yamuna left behind one of its anfractuous loops here when it changed course over the years and is now channelled through more defined and fortified embankments and dykes to defend modern Delhi from floods.

On the west side of the lake on the landfill-reclaimed land stands a housing colony. On the east side is a plantation of a few acres of acacia, babool and keekar trees, offering some habitat to local remnant wildlife.Though the lake and its surrounding fields were originally an excellent wetland ecosystem which supported a rich wildlife habitat, the Delhi government of late has converted the lake and started promoting it as a water games/sports facility.
