Nawegaon Khairi is a dam site situated in Parseoni range forest. It is suited to be a good spot for picnic point of view. The area is surrounded by thick forest on three sides.

Nawegaon is also a popular forest resort, and an adventure spot. It was said built by Kolu Patel Kolhi in the beginning of the 18th century. There's a picturesque lake set in the middle of hill ranges with watchtowers that enable you to view wildlife.

Make sure to visit the deer part, the Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, the three beautiful gardens and the children's park. Almost 60% of the bird species found in Maharashtra have been recorded in Nawegaon. Every winter, huge flocks of migratory ducks visit the lake.
