As Albert Einstein says: "Look deep into Nature and you will Understand Everything Better" Allah Almighty has blessed Pakistan with lots of natural views. The need is only to observe and admire these creations. CDA has inaugurated Lotus Lake at the National Park Hills area of Shakarparian Ground Islamabad. Background: Lotus Lake is a man-made creation since 1970 but it was closed in 2006. This artificially created lake is used as a small pool which was later closed for construction and repair. Beautiful Trees had grown beside the lake while the precious lotus Flowers were blooming on the surface of the clean lake water. Now CDA (Capital Development Authority) inaugurated a “National Family Park” beside this lake in the last 11 years. National Family Park: This Park is purely designed with natural objects like wood or stones. In this park, benches which are used for sitting are made up of wood and stones. Management is always trying to decorate the park without damaging the nearby natural objects. Saplings and grass are grown here to maintain the natural beauty of the Park. Recreational Activities: There are various activities to look forward to including a safari area to enjoy with animals, swings for kids, a playground, hunting, boating, and also a restaurant with a variety of delicious foods. Lotus Lake with the linked national park is one of the most enjoyable places to visit with family.
