“Good Place for a Brisk Walk.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 18 June 2015 NEW
Sankey Tank is an excellent place for a morning or evening walk and workout. It is located in the suburb of Malleshwaram in Bangalore. The circumference of the track around the tank is about 2 km.
The walking track has been developed around a man made lake which was built by Col. Richard Sankey of the Madras Sappers Regiment in 1882, to meet the water supply demands of Bangalore. The tank was later converted into a park by the Bangalore Water Supply authorities. There is also a municipal swimming pool nearby which is open to the public at specified timings.
A lot of local people visit this park regularly for their morning and evening walks. There is ample parking space around the park. The tracks are clearly demarcated so that the walkers keep to the left side and observe the 'traffic rules' for walking! In addition there is a board giving you the inspirational message of the day. There is also a separate area with basic gym equipment where one can have a workout.
There is a 'duck house' in the middle of the lake and an area where you can feed the pigeons and other birds.
When you are finished with your walk there are health food, juice, fruit and vegetable stalls outside the gates.
