At a distance of 4 km from Ahmedabad Junction, Sabarmati Riverfront is a waterfront developed along the banks of Sabarmati River in Ahmedabad. It is one of the beautiful places to visit in Ahmedabad.
Sabarmati Riverfront is a project undertaken by Gujarat Government in order to preserve the river and promote tourism. Even though the project was proposed in 1960s, the construction was began in 2005. Since 2012, the waterfront is gradually opened to public with various facilities. The prime agendas of this project include environment improvement, social infrastructure and sustainable development.
The main feature of this 11 km long riverfront project is a two-level promenade situated on both sides of the river where the lower level serves only pedestrians and cyclists while the upper level is capable of hosting numerous cultural and educational events, leisure activities, large public parks and plazas and a few areas for commercial and retail development. This is an ideal spot to enjoy picnic with family.
It consists of a magnificent walkway over the River Sabarmati. Boat Riding & Evening Walks are the prime activities here. The entire riverfront offers a panoramic view of the city's landscape. Every year in the month of January, the Sabarmati riverfront is decorated to celebrate the International kite festival.
