Good place for outing such as BBQ and picnic with family and friends. Secured area patroled by security officials. Friday, Saturday must go early morning to have good location and free parking of your choice.

This place has been developed recently for offering families a better picnic experience. the artificial lake looks beautiful, however, the authorities must take extra care to avoid people from throwing garbage into the lake
