Mogan Lake

When you do a little research, you may encounter a significant amount of lakes in a city like Ankara that does not have a sea. As many of these lakes are close to the city center, local people consider the area around the lake as a promenade. It is possible to evaluate Lake Mogan in this context. The lake is located 24 kilometers south of the city. Lake Mogan, where the people of Ankara and the local people have an intense interest, is popularly called Gölbaşı. Many picnic areas, cafes and restaurants are located around the lake. The total face measurement of the lake is measured at 561 hectares. When visiting Lake Mogan, you will also encounter a park created by the municipality. This large park, called The Nature Park, contains many sports fields, pedestrian paths, picnic areas and wooden coastal paths. Here you can play tennis, ride or run. Within the recreation area you will encounter sections such as lighthouse building, water tank and boathouse. The water of Lake Mogan is generally salty. Carp, pike and crayfish are among the most common fish species. Recent contamination in the lake threatens fish habitats to a certain extent. An amphitheater with a capacity of 3 thousand people is located on the hill which views Mogan Lake from a wide angle. In addition, a thousand-person wedding hall is located in this area again. Fresh seafood can be enjoyed at restaurants in the area. It is also possible to see examples of local Ankara delicacies here. 11 separate streams whose source is Elmadag feed this large lake. More than 220 bird species are identified within the lake. The park, which opens around the lake, revitalizes and popularizes the area in many ways.
