A nice retreat back to nature from the hustle and bustle of city life. Free and has a history of its own as being the earliest garden established by the British in Malaya. Easily accessible from town - just a walking distance. Can be enjoyed by all generations.

Nice area to go through. Relaxing and quiet. Easily to go to from town by bicycle. With a bit of luck you can see the monkies. Also to have a look at is the war cemetery on the way to the zoo.

The view is very beautiful especially nearing sunset. There is also a ride and cruise around the lake and you can jogging and just having a stroll with your family and friends. Also perfect for photo shoot as the scenery is gorgeous.

Don't miss the Lake Gardens. Great in the early morning and late afternoon for walks and peace. It gets quite crowded at weekends.

The lake gardens is very relaxing and peaceful. The trees around it form an arch over the road which runs around the lake. The lake gardens is a great place to walk around to enjoy nature.

Calm, chilled and totally green walk around beautiful fields - that what we've enjoyed in the Gardens. Grab your mosquito repellent though if you'd like to stay a bit longer, for a picnic or just to read book.
