About Ward's Lake

Perfect to be an artist's muse, Ward's Lake is an artificial lake set amidst lush green surroundings. It has an amazingly ornamented bridge, sloping walkways, rose beds, and boulevard of pine trees. You can enjoy boating in this lake while feeding the colourful fishes that reside in it. For couples, a walk through the cobbled stone path in the garden can be a retreat. The gurgling water of the fountains makes for an ideal place to have some peaceful time. A botanical garden along the side of the lake presents an exotic variety of flora. There is a cafeteria on the premises that serve a broad range of refreshments. This attraction in Shillong is an ideal picnic spot for families and is a must visit for a traveller.

Historical Context: There is an interesting story behind construction of Ward's Lake. A prisoner once got bored of Labour Camp's routine and asked for a creative release. He was then permitted to work on the building of Ward's Lake.
