Beautifully landscaped, with water fountains, streams and a fairytale garden, the Park attached to the dam offers a nice escape from the bustle of the city.The dam is a fascinating one enveloped by hills with an evergreen forest lying behind the reservoir, a frequently visited place by the tourists. Three islands in the reservoir are specially recognized as tourist attractions. These islands are the best places to visit for perceiving the beautiful marine life including the commercial species of fish grown by the Fisheries Department.
