The area around Dhanmondi Lake is one of the better places to run in Dhaka. There are a couple of small parks, and a dedicated lakeside walkway that adds up to a loop of ~4.2 km. There are nice views of the water, lush greenery, and giant banyan trees. On the west side is a sports complex with a large field. A large amphitheater in the park is filled with tea stalls and kebab shops for a post-run snack! Note: the paths can get busy, so best to go early .
