A short drive from central Chandigarh in the town of Pinjore, Aqua Village is a midsize water park featuring attractions for visitors of all ages. Highlights of this family favorite include eight waterslides and a variety of pools, some designed with small children in mind.
Attractions at Aqua Village focus on pools and slides, with a family pool, a kids' play area, and eight waterslides measuring over 50 feet (15 meters). There's also a lazy river and a rain-dance area, along with a food court for those who want to stick around for lunch. Many visitors combine their trip to the water park with a stop at the adjacent Pinjore (Yadavindra) Gardens.

How to Get There
Aqua Village is situated next to the Yadavindra Gardens in Pinjore, about a half-hour drive northeast of Chandigarh. The most affordable way to get there is to take bus 49 from the Chandigarh Railway Station to Pinjore and then catch a rickshaw the rest of the way, though it's much easier to take a taxi or visit as part of a full-day private tour to Chandigarh.
When to Get There
Aqua Village is open every day from midmorning until evening. It's best visited on weekdays, when crowds are fewest, while Sundays can get particularly busy with local families, especially in the afternoon. It’s refreshing to visit in April or May, when temperatures are at their highest, though this is also the park’s most crowded time of year.
If you’re visiting the water park, it’s also worth spending some time in the adjacent Yadavindra Gardens, aka Pinjore Gardens. Built in the 17th century under Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, the garden is an excellent example of Mughal landscaping and features a variety of fountains, pathways, and plant life along with an open-air museum.
