Theme park to be set up at Mayem in Goa


Goa’s first theme park will come up near Mayem lake, Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar said on Thursday.

Speaking in the Legislative Assembly, he said government had identified a 15,000 sq metre tract of land near Mayem lake for this purpose.

The lake is situated 15 km from here.

KPMG, a consultant for the tourism master plan, will provide a plan for the park, the minister added.

The proposed park will be on the lines of Genting island in Malaysia, Parulekar said.

Leader of Opposition Pratapsingh Rane, however, intervened and pointed out that Genting island is famous for gambling, so the state should be cautious in its plans.
