Said to be the largest lake in the area. It’d be better to visit in via the parks around it, which would offer better view and entertainment.

The new park is beautiful and with convenient stops or food or needs along the way. We stopped at an art exhibit and watched the sunset and enjoyed our bike ride around the lake. Especially at night.

Nice place for photo and walk. Relaxing place where one can take a stroll and take picture. View of the lake was fantastic. They do offer boat rides which is quite costly.

The natural lake is many km long, and many km wide! There is so much to do here it isn't possible to include it all. You can rent boats, walk, picnic, visit an aquarium, eat, and much, much more.
