Madiwala lake is located near BTM layout. Once you cross silk board, keep driving. You will find a petrol bunk on the right hand side at a junction. Take left here and keep going straight until you see a park followed by the lake.

There is a small children’s park. This place is also frequented by couples. There is nothing much to see, as large part of the lake is covered with water hyacinth and other aquatic grass. I think lake should be cleaned and put to better use. One good thing about this lake is, it is bigger in length. So it has a larger shoreline. The Lake Development Authority should hand over this lake to private parties on the lines of KR Puram lake. I feel it has a lot of potential. There is a nominal entry fee to the park. I did not go there for obvious reason that there is nothing much. Parking is free.

This is the same lake which over flowed and caused flood in 2005.
