If you are stressed out after a weeks’ work, you can spend quality leisure time at Nolbon. It is serene and beautiful place, where you can not only laze around but have some good food too. The main part of attraction is the river which is seen to be meandering through the middle of the Nolbon Complex. You can also enjoy a long boating experience here.
The Nolbon boating complex is situated at the heart of the Salt Lake City, 12 kms from Central Kolkata. It stays open from 9 a.m. to 8.30 p.m. on the weekdays and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on the weekends. Just as is name suggests, it is made up of various lakes and nals or creeks which are fringed with numerous groves.
Nolbon is also considered to be a beautiful and apt picnic spot, as it is easy to reach and yet away from the hustle bustle of our everyday life. There are various types of boats available starting from the simple paddle boats, to the hovercrafts and also the deluxe sikaras. There are isles and huts to be explored which sit pretty over the lake. The hovercrafts have been newly installed. There are plans that para sailing, water scooters and various other water sports will be added, to improve on the level of attraction. Although, there’s a food park within Nolbon, there also are plans to include houseboats and a floating restaurant. So, this may add to the charm of the place, not only for the families but for the ‘lovey dovey’ couples too.
