The aliyar dam reservoir park , on the way to valparai is an excellent place to relax and enjoy. We visited the reservoir in November this year and found the visit very pleasant. The weather was very good and we could roam around the beautiful garden at the base of the reservoir bund. Though the maintenance could be better, the garden is in usable condition. There are life size statues of animals and people made of cement which add a unique charm to the garden. The water from the reservoir sluice is channeled in a beautiful way that is pleasing to see. The rush and gush of the water adds cheer to the whole place. The play area for the kids is well equipped and the boating allowed in the reservoir is an added attraction for the adults. The view of the anamalai range around the reservoir is a feast for the eyes and the view of the coconut groves from the top of the dam is amazing. The place being well connected by bus and being quite near the city of Coimbatore is really a good place to visit with family, friends. All the usual eateries and roadside vendors are outside the park area and this helps in keeping the park clean from the litter of the shopkeepers. The main road is wide and good and adequate parking facility (paid) are made at a little distance from the park thus minimising congestion near the park.
