Beautiful lake for boat ride and to walk around

Located in the heart of the township, it's a beautiful lake for boat ride and to walk around. It's a small lake with a 2km walk around. Just lovely to take a walk, sit on a bench and soak it all in. The boat ride is for 20mins. There is a park too with steady trees to sit under and relax. All together a great place to spend a couple of hours.

Good

The lake is good and looks like its well maintained. But refreshment area around the lake didn't look that neat We took a rowing boat and the ten minutes boating was good. But one bad thing I observed is the life jacket is not made mandatory in for boating. I saw only those people using self pedaling use life jackets. This is not a safe practice. Pricing is also not that high when compared to other tourist places.

Massive lake

The lake is very big and you also can go boating. You do have a spacious pavement built to walk around the lake and you also have benches and small shelters to enjoy the view of lake without going in the sun.

A very small pond that's called a lake

Walking the entire perimeter took hardly 5-7 minutes. Overhyped. In fact even charging an entry fee for this is pathetic. A village pond is usually bigger than this man made reservoir.

Children's attraction

The Lake is the only big attraction in Yelagiri. You have to wait a lot to get into the boat. It lasts for 30 minutes but not much to enjoy for the adults in terms of picturesque scenery, but only a child's attraction.

Relaxing boat ride

This is a very relaxing ride in a relaxing destination. Not much crowd. During the time that we went, pedal boats were not allowed. The boatman who rowed us was very friendly, non-intrusive. We could spot some good variety of birds. It takes about 30 minutes for one ride and the charge is very less -just INR 50 per head. They allow a maximum of 4 riders other than the boatman.

Small and beautiful Lake

A small Lake to enjoy the boating. However we didn't go for it, as that day it was very crowded and we didn't want to wait in queue for 30-60 min for normal boating. There is a small garden/park attached to it (other than nature park), which is also good.

Poor maintenance of the Lake and its surroundings

Very crowded place with long queue and waiting to take the boat ride. The place is badly maintained. It is not a good experience to endure the crowd and also poor parking facilities.

Small surface with good maintenance

This park is a place which is more comfortable for kids as well as elders. There are a lot of kids rides. Food shop, Ice cream and soft drink shops are also available. Boating is also good and very safety. The staff treating us were good. The only thing is street dogs inside the park which is very critical and they always come near to us while eating and disturbing the tourister.
