We can definitely spend 3-4 hours with family and friends.
This is not an authorized and well managed picnic spot. There is a public toilet available, but the maintenance is poor. No proper restaurants or eateries available nearby. We have to travel till Ponneri, that is 15 kms away to find a decent restaurant.
A safe and recommended weekend getaway for the people in and around Chennai.
Find below a couple of boatman contacts for boating.
