Pretty park area

This is a pretty area of parkland a few kilometres drive away from the city centre in JB. Not too much to see but nice enough.

This park used to be a small mosquito infested lake with some chalets for shady rendevous by the side of the road in the 80's. Now, it is a beautiful landscaped park with proper walkways and gazebos to sit down for refreshment. There is even a small swimming pool for children. I love going there to have scones and coffee...

The park dedicated and based the concept to Malaya's Independance from Japanese, British and Communist era. The 31 acres park is very good for walking and recreation. It is being upgraded. Part of the lake is dried up. The 60 feet fountain also is being restored. It is located across RTM(Radio Television Malaysia).

Nice big green area for walking, relaxing and sporting in- near the colourfully lit clocktower, it is a nice spot to spend some time. Could do with some more trees though.

We just passed by this spot. Looked great. But no time to explore. Maybe nxt time. Johor is a beatuliful place and it resembles melaka. The city is laid back the malaysian way and there are lesser jams which you will appreciate if you are from KL...

While this might be the latest park in JB and possibly the only other decent park in JB now that the Istana Grounds are closed, it is sadly not in good shape. As a result of bad planning and lack of maintenance the place is also unsafe for children in particular. Last evening was our first trip there and my... More

I can rate so mny good things about the place but what killed it? The answer is maintenance and follow through on the project. From afar and even on paper, the place and the idea would seem splendid. Such a shame to see a beautiful place go to waste. The lake is well designed and you could take a paddleboat... More
