Because of excessive water extraction by local farmers this wetland almost ceased to exist a few years back; there was even underground combustion of the peat! The authorities are now transferring water from elsewhere to maintain reasonable water levels, at least during the springtime.
I visited on two weekdays and the park is large enough to find peaceful areas away from the two visiting schools and one senior citizen tours. Birdlife is prolific and there is a raised area from which there is a 360º view of the wetlands with the low mountain ranges in the background. Quite beautiful and reposing. Will definitely return to "recharge my batteries"!
