Nice lake, very good shopping mall with plenty of choice and variety of stores, and many restaurants

Muddy water, too much green growth on surface of water. Little or no recreational value in my own opinion compared to other lakes like oguta lake.

Well clean and well managed place however less of international brands inside the mall, outer area is good to sit around ib the evening with couple of drinks. Beware of mosquitoes especially when you are sitting out side.

Jabi Lake is a big marketing that you can get everything under one building and their price is friendly.

I saw young men selling large fish they had caught and a flock of white birds in the distance. A man paddled his kayak quietly about. I sat there awhile enjoying the peace and quiet. This is a hidden oasis in Abuja.
