Masunda Lake, Talaopali, Thane West

Masunda Lake, also known as Talaopali is a big and deep lake of Thane City. It is situated close to railway station of Thane and is a point of recreation and Ganesh Immersion. Perimeter of lake is around 1.4 kms and total area of Masunda lake is about 7.2 hectares appx. Boating is main attraction here. At center of Lake is Mahadev Dhyan Mandir. Earlier it was open for public but nowadays it is closed. But occasionally it is opened.

Like its sister lakes, this lake is also subjected to pollution and throwing of garbage. This lake is also suffering from Eutrophication due to pollution.
There are horse carts and many eateries around this lake. 
Previously this lake was extending upto the Shiv Mandir on the East. In 1950s a new road was constructed by reducing the area of the lake to almost half its original size, to take care of traffic load. Several gardens, a vegetable market & a small ground - Shivaji Maidan were created in between the Temple & Lake.

Ulhas River, Gaimukh Creek, Thane West

This is Ulhas River mouth. The river originates in Hills of Karjat and flows all the way and drains in Thane Creek. Above photo is of Ulhas River in Gaimukh Gaon. Massive Sand mining and land grabbing is done on its banks. All city sewage is dumped in to this river right from its source till drain. This river is famous for migratory birds but due to heavy pollution its declining. People throw their holy garbage into it without thinking that it damages the ecosystem. This is a beautiful river but its dying. Its said that there will be a water sport developed at this Gaimukh Creek stretch. Love your City, Clean your City.
