Bhalswa Horseshoe Lake, New Delhi Overview

Bhalswa Horseshoe Lake a multi-sports and leisure complex has been created by Delhi Tourism at Bhalswa Lake, (it is a rain fed lake) situated at Delhi.

This horseshoe lake was originally formed when the nearby River Yamuna left behind one of its meandering loops here when it changed course over the years and is now channelled through more defined and fortified embankments and dykes to defend modern Delhi from floods.

 

On the west side of the lake on the landfill-reclaimed land stands a housing colony. On the east side is a plantation of a few acres of acacia, babool and keekar trees, offering some habitat to local remnant wildlife.

 

Though the lake and its surrounding fields were originally an excellent wetland ecosystem which supported a rich wildlife habitat, the Delhi government of late has converted the lake and started promoting it as a water games/sports facility
