This rock formation, which is about 2500 million years old, is a popular picnic spot as it has been converted in to a Sculpture Park with artificial waterfalls and a floating fountain. The rock formation on the eastern side of the lake has been transformed in to a green belt with about 2 km pathway, and seating arrangements.

Boating, trekking, fishing and rock climbing can be done at Secret Lake. Refreshments are available on the eastern side of the lake. Secret Lake, by night, transforms to an outdoor venue for the local youth.
