Located in the heart of Shillong, there stands a beautiful man-made Lake known as Ward's Lake. The lake and its gradually rolling grounds are hemmed in by lush green slopes. It has a most pleasant, winding walk-a-way all around its parameter set in cobbled sand stone.

The local people therefore, prefer to call it "Nan Polok" or "Polok's Lake". This lake is quite popular for boatings as well as pleasant walks on the cobbled sand stone pathways, among beautiful, vividly colored flowers.

The lake also sports on arched bridge over it. It is located in the heart of the city near Raj Bhawan and is easily approachable from Shillong.

The lake abounds in fish (grass carps) and feeding the fish from the bridge is a favorite pastime of the tourists. It is said that a Khasi prisoner, who requested for any kind of work to get him out of his cell, initiated its construction.

The lake has a charming winding walk-a-way in the midst of rolling flowerbeds and fairyland lighting with gradually undulating grounds, hemmed in by lush greens. Boats are also presented, while the cafeteria provides refreshments.
