At that time the local government invested heavily in draining and dredging the pond, sloping the banks and refilling it with clean
Today the lake includes a small cable ‘Lotus Cable Park’ which is to be extended to a five-pylon cable later this year.

The lake is not only used by the skiers and riders

The next World Games are to be held in Cali, Columbia July 23-29 2013.
