Shri Atal Behari Vajpayee - Walking Path

The walking path named after Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Behari Vajpayee connects 5th Main, Malleshpalya to 6th Cross, Kaggadasapura.

Opened on 6th April 2015, it is actually only a part of the 3.5km perimeter Kaggadaspura Lake. The rest of the work is happening in phases and it may take upto a year to make the whole perimeter of the lake walkable.

The current path is 1.5 km and a walkers paradise. Walkers of all ages starting from toddlers to the elderly can be seen here especially in the mornings and the evenings.

The plan is to have a senior citizens park also as part of this initiative.

This is a very welcome development.

When the lake is cleaned up and the garbage dump near 5th Main is scientifically managed then the whiff of bad smell at the 5th Main entrance would also disappear.

The hope is to bring back the lost glory of Bangalore as a "Garden City".
