Good times on the water have begun at the Nagavara Lake near Hebbal offered by Lumbini Gardens - a boating and leisure complex offering a variety of adventure and entertainment activities have been introduced for the first time in Bangalore.

Lumbini Gardens which is being set up at a cost of over Rs 10 crore, is located eight kms from Vidhana Soudha. Even if you are an inexperienced boater, there are professional lifeguards to instil confidence. One can try different boats ranging from two seaters to 15 seaters.

You can take control of the eco-friendly paddle boat and cruise along the lake. You can be the captain of your own boat, testing your boating skills as you bump, splash and dodge oncoming boats.

Aqua-Cycles which are turning heads from Florida to California to Cape Cod and from Bora Bora to Hawaii to the Cayman Islands are now available at Lumbini Gardens. Aqua cycles are easy and fun to ride.

If you are the adventurous type, you can jet-ski (a water-skiing device and part speedboat) and derive hours of entertainment and adventure. One can entertain upto 10 guests on a floating coffee shop and another 10 guests can be entertained with the joining of two boats. It can be virtually a floating party - so your kitty party or birthday party will defintely make a splash.

The park has been designed to cater to all ages. Children can amuse themselves at a rotating carousel or enter in a land of fantasy with the Vortex, a new item in entertainment. They can also enjoy a variety of swings or the thrills and spills of a Spanish bull fight with life-like simulated inflatable bulls.

In the next phase one can make waves at the wavepool and enjoy ‘the beach’ at the Wave Pool which promises to give you an experience similar to swimming in the ocean.

Food and fun

When you are not enjoying activities on the lake, you can laze on the waterfront. The foodcourt, in a total area of 240 sq ft, will have as many as 20 joints of multi-nationals companies and top brands serving sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, French fries, beverages, chaats and Indian cuisine. There will be 15 curio shops where you can get souvenirs, gift and novelty items. Provision is also made for ATMs along with travel-booking counters.

Lumbini Gardens have undertaken a number of eco-friendly measures. A water treatment plant at a cost of Rs 40 lakh with a capacity to treat five lakh litres per day is being installed. A nursery with 20,000 plants of different species is also being developed along with a rose park that will come up in the vicinity of the lake. As many as 30 solar lights are being installed along the lake bund. The state-of-the-the art battery boats from China are also eco-friendly.

Apart from an entry fee, the water rides are charged separately. However, if you do not wish to enjoy any of the rides, you can still hang around the place enjoying the cool breeze.
