“It's a lake”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The lake is at the edge of the centre and is a peaceful lace to sit, but its a lake nothing much to see. Would not make a special trip to visit it,

“Time to chill”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Not the greatest site you will see but a pleasant place to take a walk. Just absorb the surrounding hills and city life.

“Just a walk”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We enjoyed watching the bats fly after sunsets, the birds chirping really loud (don't walk under the trees then or you can find an unpleasant wet surprise on your head!), the lizadrs and the big fish. However it's just a place you pass by on your way to other places. The street right next to the lake is very loud. We didn't try boating on the lake.

“Lovely man made lake in the centre of town”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Pretty but the smell of car exhaust is a bit overwhelming during the day. Try early morning or late afternoon

“Very ordinary”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Not sure what the fuss is about. It is just a square patch of water, and not particularly clean at that.
