The renovation works conducted at Pothundi garden as part of adventure tourism project is nearing completion. The garden near to the dam is being installed with sports and adventure equipment.
The Pothundi dam construction was started in 1958 and completed in 1966. Later a garden was built adjacent to it. In 2008, decorative plants and pedestrian pathways were installed.
As no sufficient electric lights were installed, the garden was not open to visitors after 6 pm. But with a renovation on 4.5 acres of land adjacent to the garden, the authorities aim to attract more visitors.
Play area for children, shooting point, quad biking and open gym are being arranged. The works for 80m rope cycling is about to commence shortly.
Also swimming pool, 1400m pedestrian path, garden, water foundation and open stage are also under construction.
The authorities are planning to complete the works and open the garden before Onam vacation.
