Lumbini Gardensis now RAJKUMAR boating club, what is the name as long as it delivers what it promises, an wholesum entertainment for a family. Earlier the entry fee was plugged at Rs 20 on weekdays and Rs 30 now it is flat Rs 30/- per adult. There is a camera fee of Rs 50 ( which is exhorbitant according to me ) The best publicity in the absence of high advertising budget is to ensure maximum photos are circulated among the population. Anyways people with high resolution cell camera still will be able to capture photos.

There is a water ride which costs Rs 50/- Artificial bowling machine which costs Rs 50/-, most of the rides including boating cost Rs 50/- except a few rides for small kids which cost Rs 20/-

One can enjoy snacks such chat,popcorn and other packed stuff. The prices are pegged a little higher than the market price. The food quality is not so great but bearable. For coffee lovers there is Cafe day.

There are lot of lake fishes spotted around the lake, once it was a haven for the migratory bird now since scorching summer is around the birds have vanished because of lack of green cover. Adjescent portion of the lake is yet to be developed. There is no water. We were suprised that mosquitos have started swarming the lake, which is a downer, if one wants to safe from mosquito borne disease one is advised to carry mosquito repellent cream from Godrej or Odomos.

Overall it is quite nesting ground for love birds, nobody will be dare to disturb their privacy. The kids will definitely enjoy 2 to 3 hours of fun filled rides and water games. Overall it is a family place to spend some hours apart from multiplexes. Great photographic opportunity definitely is provided by nature. If one is lucky he gets to shoot the birds.
