  • Nice lake for boating. Two boating options available- rowing boat and paddle boat. I have picture here describing prices and capacity of boats (in Marathi). On the right side of lake is Horse Riding option costing Rs.100 for very short ride of around a minute. You can also buy strawberries here for Rs.200/kg and fast food is also available. Lake is also very beautiful.
  • It is a nice and lovely place. Views are mesmerizing. Horse riding is available and most of all you can run the horse. There is also a boating club here with paddle boats and boats. You can drive the boats if you like or if you want you can ride in one . A lot of street food is available there and parking is free.
  • Venna Lake is a nice location to just walk around with friends, or take part in the many activities available. Boating on the lake, horse riding, eating drinking all lots of fun. This place does get very busy and parking can be hard to find so I would recommend getting there earlier or later in the day.
