The historic Kankaria Lake has been a part of Ahmedabad since its foundation was laid by its then ruler Ahmed Shah in Initiated by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation, the primary objective of the Kankaria Lakefront Development was to transform this city-scale public space with efficient and robust infrastructure. The strategies to implement this transfromation included creating complete pedestrian zones encircling the lake's edge, developing an outer ring road by strengthening the existing road network, creating approximately 6 km of access streets as well as new access points to the lakefront, enhancing recreational potential by improving public facilities, preserving historic buildings and encouraging overall development within the precinct. The design of the promenade includes 2 km-long uninterrupted pedestrian zone along the edge of the lake lined by street furniture. Amongst the various recreational activities provided, the mini train circling around the lake is the most popular. While designing, great attention was paid to the detailing of sidewalks, carriageways and on-street parking.
