Large park and numerous small lakes. Landscaped after the Chinese tin mine owner donated the area to Taiping. I guess the lakes were mining pits. Less that 1km from the business centre. Good for your favourite outdoor excercise. The locals have a excercise scene every morning - walking biking jogging up and down the small hill behind McDonalds. Numerous seats... More

The lake was much bigger than I expected. Early in the morning, the air was cool and fresh and many photographers can be seen trying to capture the sunrise and Maxwell Hill. It's worth taking a stroll either in the morning or evening to take a break - from the hectic city life.

Amazingly, many locals running, walking, cycling, exercising around the lake. Chinese, Malays and Indians! The air was fresh and cool! Mix of young and old, relaxing and yet dynamic energy. WATER Levels were low --- I hope its not due to over-taping of the ground water to package as MINERAL water to sell nationwide.

This park was rescued from the spoil tips of an old tin mine by farsighted Brits long ago. Take an hour in the evening to walk along the paths and have a tea at the cafe, or row a boat on the lake. If you are feeling energetic, try horse riding at the excellent Taiping Equestrian Centre. The horses are... More

The beautiful Lake Gardens is located just a few minutes drive from the town and it is worth a visit if you're on your way to Penang. Huge rain trees more than 100 years old, line the road with their branches stretching... More
