It's just a time pass place. If you want to spend one or two hour, you may come here. Don't over expect, there is nothing extraordinary.

Cool water-body. Liked the ambience. It will take the shape of tank bund (Hyderabad) kind of atmosphere in the time to come. I would have like more space for parking and more fun games around. Good prospects for Water sports in the long run.
