  • Very beautiful place and very good for boating. Breeze and the atmosphere here will give you very pleasant feeling. There will be cycles around the lake.so you can enjoy by going around. The place itself is very beautiful so no need to add anymore positive points about that.

  • I would love to visit this place again. My favorite time to visit was after boating hours. The traffic is low and u could enjoy the walk around the lake. I also loved cycling and shopping (mother) around the lake.
