Yes, the water is very peaceful and surrounding is very quiet. A good place for walking. However, just like a common reservoir. Suggest to skip it if your time is tight. Go ahead to explore other interesting place in Penang.

The view over the dam is nice enough, with the tranquil water and the green hills surrounding it, but there's just not enough there to justify the trek out from Georgetown. I would recommend skipping this.
