At a distance of 10 Kms from Trivandrum Central Railway Station, Akkulam Tourist Village is a beautiful picnic spot on the banks of the Akkulam Lake. The Tourist Village has a boat club, a well-equipped children's park, snack bar and a paddle pool and a swimming pool for adults.
The Akkulam Tourist Village is constructed where the native lagoon amalgamates with the Arabian Sea and the area is dotted with fish ponds, wading pools and beautiful landscaped gardens. Of late the city aims at constructing the first musical dancing fountain, which represents the Padmamanabha Swamy Temple in the background. This masterpiece would be constructed by the District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC) in order to attract tourists from round the world.
