A few years ago, in 2007, there were plans for the lake area to be converted into an amusement park. However, amidst protests and petitions, this did not happen. In 2012, the Lake Development Authority (LDA) took back possession of the lake and it had indicated that it would welcome the active involvement of citizens and NGOs in getting the lake back to its former splendour. 

Home to many birds and a place of recreation, today Agara Lake is in “not so good” shape, needing the immediate and active involvement of the neighborhood. 

A group of neighbourhood citizens have come together as the Save Agara Lake Forum and they are organizing a walkathon and cleanup drive within the lake premises on Sunday, 7th July 2013, 8 a.m. onwards.

Be there! Spread the word!
Help bring Agara Lake back to life!
