Rawal Lake Tips (4)

Rawal Lake View Park

It is a famous picnic place for the people of Rawalpindi & Islamabad. I enjoyed visiting Lake View Point with my family. Atmosphere is cool relative to Rawalpindi. Kids enjoyed rides & we enjoyed walk on beautiful pathways & lush green lawns. Passenger bus ride to the lake was great. Both family & paddle boats were there for riding. Lake view is very beautiful.

Park covers a large area and encloses variety of recreation activities like:

Pathways for walking, Green Lawns for sitting by
Passenger train & Electric Bus
Ibex club, rock climbing gym
Paintball battlefield
Motor sports ranch
Fun Rides & games for children & adults
Boating Area
