The Vastrapur Lake is a lake situated in the city of Ahmedabad in the state of Gujarat in western India. It is located in the western part of the city in the Vastrapur area. The lake was beautified by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation and has since become a popular spot in the city. The prestigious Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad is located about 1km from the lake. The lake is about 5-10 minutes away from the Sarkhej-Gandhinagar highway.

Every weekend, a large number of people visit this lake. It currently boasts an open air theatre, children's park and boating facilities. There is a pathway all around the lake which serves many walkers and joggers in the early mornings and in the evenings.

The lush green lawns surrounding this lake also serve as a central hub of Ahmedabad, wherein various cultural events take place regularly.

At times, the water from Narmada River is allowed to flow into this lake. The lake has pretty gardens with lots of stone work in them. Various boats are available for rent at the lake site.

There is also a multi-speciality hospital "Sanjivani" located near the lake.
