“Good place for evening walk & refreshment.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Taman Gelora is a nice place to pass your evening or everyday evening walk. Tree shaded walkway, small shop's to buy food, parking.. but the best thing to me is the Water Lily pond. Saw many many water lily. Sitting beside the pond was best quality time of mine.

“Relaxing amongst nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Taman Gelora is a favourite place of mine to visit again and again. It is a park located by the beach which is full of trees providing shade everywhere. There is a footpath which takes you around the park for a leisurely stroll. Alternatively, there are many people in the evenings who come here for jogging. It is very quiet and pleasant. Of course, there are many opportunities for photography in this beautiful place, and I always come back home with many lovely photos. Another attraction here is a water lilly pond near the entrance.

Taman Gelora is a popular spot for wedding photos. I have regularly witnessed many couples dressed in fancy colours having wedding photos professionally snapped.

If you're in Kuantan, Taman Gelora is a must!

“Disappointing Taman Gelora”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

It's actually a nice place to be, to hang out but I personally think the municipal did very little to maintain it. The whole area seems has been neglected for awhile, the food court is in bad shape, the pedestrian path is in bad shape, the pond is not maintain properly. So work it on MPK

“Best for jog, but aware of mosquitoes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Its a pretty nice park to jog with families and friends!
Nature breeze touched your face, its comfy

If you prefer warmer, sweater on while jog

There's some malay stall selling nice snacks such as keropok and curry puff.
Give it a try!

The only thing stop me to visit is mosquitoes.
Which normally active around 6~7pm..
