About Ward's Lake
Wards Lake is one of the most popular tourist locations in the hill city. Named after Sir William Ward, the then Chief Commissioner of Assam, this lake is a man-made lake, which is enclosed by a well maintained garden. The lake is also known as Polok Lake, as the water body is situated right in the middle of the city. The beautiful horse-shoe shaped lake is loved by the people of the city as well as the tourists who come here because of its serene environment. At the lake, tourists can enjoy a number of recreational activities such as boating, taking a stroll around the cobble-stoned paths and fountain dancing. A beautiful wooden bridge is situated right at the middle of the lake and has beautiful lotus flowers growing on both the sides of it.
