Very green

It's pleasant to take a walk around the lake. The trees are tall and beautiful. The scenery around the lake is very green and natural.

A trip to Taiping is not complete without a trip to the lakeside. Take a stroll around the lake in the cool morning or evening time to fully absorb the beautiful, scenic and serene surroundings.

Wonderful landscaping across the lake with little clumps of islands, bridges, pathways and lanes, and dense foliage of trees and birdlife.

Lake gardens are an absolute jewel at the end off the day due to the sun coming down. A must do is to walk around the lake from 4:30-5pm.

If you are travelling on business, dont forget to pack a your gear as the 1hour jog in the morning is surely worth the run. Fresh air, bird chirping, great view; its a sight you would not want to miss.

Only Okay becuase of the lack of botanical specimens planted. Also they manicure the sure line and typical plastic litters the shoreline. It would be great if theu stopped manicuring right up to the waterline and let indigenopus water, bog, and shoreline plants grow primarily to encourage more diverse wildlife. For example where are the frogs there is plenty of... More

A lake surrounding by big big trees. Very big garden for people to walk around, chit chating and resting. Very nice place. Feel comfortable and relax just sitting beside and enjoy the scenery.

Taiping Lake Garden is meant for recreational purposes but at peak hours, it was congested with vehicle and the air is pretty polluted. The trees and views are fantastically amazing. Running path there is pretty narrow and uneven. The separation distance between running path and passing vehicle is too close for comfort. Joggers and runners resorted to run on the... More

Lake is undergoing a process of eutrophication n is losing its charm. Plenty of open spaces wasted as there nothing much to do
