Cost for boating was high. Decent games and garden for Kids. According to 12/- per person entry, it was nice. Near the city center. Outside the garden there are good number of shops to buy gift and fancy items.

Just a small round trip through the lake and reach back in less than 20 mins. Thats it. Then around it is just some fancy park and small business.

It is possible to see how this would have been a gem in years gone by, and it could be again. I fear it it is time for some clean up, facility upgrade and banning 2 stroke motors on the lake.

If you are looking for peaceful environment then definitely this is not the place for you as you will find a lot of children running here and there and screaming... More

I have been to this place many times earlier.But this visit really disappointed me. * The water in the lake is dirty. * U dont get to explore the whole lake. Area for row& pedal boats is separated by a big rope from the area for motor boats. No one was there to manage row boats even at 11am .... More

Had a motor boat ride. Captivating. Must visit place. Motor boat can be booked with minimum 8 members . 560 rs. If u want to take for 2 only , again u have to pay full amount. Otherwise you can tie up with other small group , eager to take motor boat ride. All of you can share the expense.... More
