Thiruvananthapuram: Veli Tourist Village is all set for a revamp. When the renovation is completed, the Tourist Village will have an aquarium, a snow park and a bunch of exciting new rides for children. The Tourism Department aims to enhance the renowned tourist destination with improved facilities and choices.
The new aquarium in the Veli Tourist Village will be modeled on Vizhinjam Marine Aquarium, while the tourist spot will also have a new Snow Park. The existing children’s Park will be renovated by installing a set of new rides.
The Tourism Department is planning to set up an Amusement Park in collaboration with private companies, at a budget of Rs. 20 crores. However, this news is yet to be officially confirmed. The fund for Veli renovation project will be borrowed from KIFBI.
Currently, the children’s park in Veli Tourism Village is not in a good state, with most of the rides not functioning properly. These rides and amusement equipment will be repaired and new ones will be installed.
The boat riding and floating resort, the major attractions of the Village, have almost stopped functioning. These will be repaired and renovated. There is also a plan to set up an amphitheatre modeled on Kanakakunnu Nishagandhi. We can expect Veli Tourist Village would emerge anew by restoring its lost glory in the nearest future.
