This is a man-made lake that is full of weeds and frogs...there is no aeration visible to keep the water fresh. There are lookouts where you can sit in the shade by the water and a small cafe on the town-side. You can hire boats to go out on the water but the water looks so disgusting I wouldn't recommend...
