The waters of Kole fields from Kecheri, Viyyur, Puzhakkal and Kurumali Rivers drain into the Enamavu Lock and then flow as the beautiful stretch of backwaters that lead to the Chettuva estuary. The lake covers about twenty five square kilometres. On western side of the lake, it is protected by a bund which was the brain child of Sakthan Thampuran. Enamavu is located beautifully amidst backwaters, lake, dam, hills and lush green fields. The bund has been created to prevent the fresh water of the lake from mixing with salty seawater. Paddy plantations are aplenty and they are well placed with the hills forming a picturesque backdrop. The one acre Nehru Park located near Enamavu bund will be developed as a major picnic spot with necessary facilities for visitors. The park belongs to Venkitangu Grama Panchayath.
