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.

An average place to attend an hour or so. The lake is very small in size. Boating charges are on the higher side at 200/- for 20 mins on a pedal boat.
