“Stick to the walk on the far side”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

The lake itself is nice but the 'attractions' very nasty. The facility for the boat rides is extremely tawdry with a formica and plastic cafe, a shooting range, train to nowhere and other badly maintained 'attractions'. The saddest things are the poor horses rented out for short rides, some of them looked less than well.

“row boat was good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

the row boat was good, but the only turn off was the rover keeps asking you for tips and makes sure he gets one, why can't they pay them well and include the cost in the ticket.

“"Main Attraction but Dirty Lake"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Well i Visited This lake but we opted not go for Boating because of the contaminated Dirty Lake water..
Contamination, Yes i guess that Dirtiness has just started these years.. But when i first Visited in 2003, The lake was looking pretty Clean..
The TN CM Jayalalitha has told news that steps would be taken ASAP to clean the Lake.. Hope that happens soon..

Overall this lake is in the center of ooty and it must visit Attraction place at ooty.. But due to its dirtiness, it might make ur mood bad to stay away for boating.. Pykara Lake and its boating far far better than this lake..
Other Than Lake this Attraction place has -
1) Bumper Car.
2) Horse Riding,
3) mountain cycling and
4) Opposite to Lake there is also Motor 4 wheel drive all terrain biking..

SO, this lake is good just to visit and sit in the lawn. But NOT FOR BOATING!!

“The Average City Lake”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

One of the major attractions of any hill station is the lake. This is just another lake in just another city. Good time for family and friends. Apart from boating, you can make use of the various small activities like mirror maze, horror house, mini train, etc.
