This place offers boating for Rs.50 per head which I felt was a very good price comparing the other famous tourist spots. This gives access to everyone and indeed more welcoming.

The small lake is manmade and has no inlet and outlet. It is clean enough to go for a pedal boat or you have a option for getting a rowed boat.

Actually we went nilavoor lake as per the picture shown. But it was like haunted place. The lake has little water but the pedalling boats got immersed half and some were broken. Overall there's no maintainence. Not worth a visit.

Excellent location wasted due to poor maintenance. Ticket collectors and boating coordinators are local goons. Don't expect any decency from them. Place is littered all over with stray dogs roaming around. Most of the kids play structures are broken. Waste of time.
