“Kickstart your mornings!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Possibly one of the best places to start off your day - a run/walk along the park... on the wooden bridge.
Lovely lake, amazing vantage points to the Shwedagon, lot of greenery :)

“Escape from the car fumes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

The lake area is a welcome escape from the car noise and fumes. It is picturesque but could be so much better. There are eating areas and separate walking sections on wooden platforms which require seperate payments to enter.
The eating areas are plentiful but are tainted somewhat by the noise and residue from numerous crows. There is a wooden platform close to one of the entrances that gives a fantastic view of the Shwedagon Pagoda at sundown.
The walking platforms offer a nice walk and a few discoveries along the way, but be careful as there are many trip hazards due to lack of maintenance. Wear decent footwear.
Litter is a problem, which to me spoilt a potential gem. I'm sure this will improve in the future though. Litter and crows apart, it's worth a couple of hours early morning or late afternoon.

“Beautiful and Zen !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Big park to start with. Get proper shoes cause you will walk a lot, but it is worth it.
A lot of local couples hiding kissing behind their umbrellas. Others are jogging on the wooden bridges around that magnificent golden boat restaurant...
U will enjoy !

“An escape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We found this park very refreshing. A lot of greenery, in addition to the lake. It also offers a nice photo shot of the Shwedagon pagoda. The locals also seem to like it a lot, especially in the early morning and evening-in other words, when they are not working.

“Beautiful, large and with a nice boardwalk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

I didn't take the time to walk inside this park but what I saw from several vantage points through the fence along the road was beautiful. It would take a couple hours to walk the perimeter of the lake, but there are some great views.
