Halanayakanahalli Lake is located off Sarjapur Road, near Rainbow Drive/ Rainbow Residency, about 1.5 km from Mori Gate. It belongs to the Halanayakanahalli Gram Panchayat. Hidden away from the traffic of the main road, currently with little water, the lake can be easily mistaken for “land to be developed”. There is a bare island somewhere in the middle, and a wooded area that has full grown trees, and admist these have been spotted a variety of birds that have made this place their home.
The lake consists of three parts:
– Halanayakanahalli Lake (42 acres 23 guntas)
– Chikkanayakanahalli Lake (22 acres 13 guntas)
– Chikkannelli Lake (28 acres 58 guntas) which is a part of the greater Halanayakanahalli Lake area.

Realising that the lake area offers substantial lung space that needs to be preserved, a group of residents have come together to try to get the lake rejuvenated. The Halanayakanahalli Lake Team, in association with the Halanayakanahalli Gram Panchayat has planned a walkathon to increase awareness about the lake.
