  • The place is too beautiful but the water is unclean!!!
  • It’s good to visit this public place close to Kashmir highway near Islamabad if you have time of around two to three hours, you can walk and enjoy multiple type of entertainments. Especially I would like to mention fun in boating rides. I have visited this place many times, though it was renovated during the time of Gen. Musharaf government, but maintenance of this park and improvement in culinary facilities was never improved.
