Good for a walk. Monkeys are visible. Much like the parks in Singapore. But the falls looks muddy. The center of the park has an elevated view giving visitors view of the park. Nice park to have a walk.

Tasek Lama is a recreational park a few minute's walk from the centre Bandar Seri Begawan. The jungle goes right up to the edge of the city and Task Lama is in the jungle. There are soft-fall jogging paths, boardwalks and easy paths. Nature has been 'tamed' in that the stream that runs through the main section has been landscaped,... More

A glimpse of Brunei's rain forest. Very well maintained and locals use it for fitness and exercise. It was good to see the hijab clad local women participating in various programmes. There is man made waterfall. The watch tower gives you 360 degree view of the rain forest canopy.

This was a lovely surprise to find within walking distance of our hotel. Many locals use this recreational gardens to jog, walk or just relax. At the time when my husband and I visited there were a couple of groups of school children, it was lovely to see their enthusiasm and interest in nature. Beautifully kept, with many places to...

My Bruneian friend, Paul brought me to this nature park. It was about 5.30 pm when we came and there were already quite a crowd of the locals coming here to exercise and had their evening stroll. This is one of the oldest recreational parks in the city. It has a natural waterfall and lake, and features a beautiful garden... More

Lots of opportunities to either relax, stroll, jog or commune with nature in the park. This is a real gem and worth a visit to see monkeys roaming free!

This is a recreational area. Better come during early morning where you can find joggers and hikers. But after 4pm also a good time as you can find some activities going on like taichi, zumba and other group activity stuff. Waterfall is nice. It may look brown but it is normal for waterfall in brunei. You can swim in it... More

Tasek Lama is probably the best recreational park I have seen! With everything from playgrounds, running tracks, a rockclimbing wall and its very own waterfall!! Attached to a forest reserve there are ample trekking opportunities, magnificent views from Bukit Laur and even a couple of waterfalls and waterholes for swimming! Spent 5 hours trekking here and it was an awesome... More

Been a while since I have been to Tasek Lama and I was back here yesterday morning with my wife for a early exercise. I was amazed at how much it has improved. The paths are now better maintained and there is a sign for the paths. Really nice place to go to and next time I would bring my... More

Waterfall looked nice on the picture and would certainly have been if it wasn't that brown and muddy. Apparently you could swim in there but the water was anything than inviting. The other trails were ok and the observation tower was nice though the view from there was not really that good.
