“A pleasant shaded walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

A pleasant shaded walk (or hot , sweaty jog for many crazy people) past playgrounds and a waterfall. Many interesting plants.

“Best in Brunei”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

This is by far the best maintained park in Brunei and it is located very near the downtown area. As others have noted it is a good place to see the silver leaf monkeys. I live at the other end of the country but come here often. You can hike through the jungle, jog or walk on the track, or just enjoy the waterfall. There are playgrounds for the kids as well as several sitting areas that are quite pretty. Most of the park is shaded so even during the hottest part of the day it is not too bad here. Parking can be a problem during peak times and I really wish that the hiking trails were a little better mapped for new visitors. Even if you are not interested in exercise, it is worth a visit for the short walk to the waterfall alone. I do not understand why the tourism board does not promote this place more as it is ten times better than the better known tourist attractions. Maybe they just want to save it for those of us who live here.

“Great place for a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Great park near the city for an early morning or late afternoon walk to avoid the heat. Likely to see lots of monkeys!

“A pleasant park well maintained with incredible natural settings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Lots of ineresting tracks for hiking and I can choose a different route each time I visit this park. I love the Silver Leaf Monkeys that live in the trees near the viewing tower and the Macaques in the areas at the parking lots
