Great place to relax or in my case to work out there; jogging. Air relatively clean although in the city and water at the waterfall is clean but don't get too close to the water in the evenings during sunset as there are shadows "swimming/darting" in the water if you look down from the pavilion. Shadows can also be seen... More

I love the short walks to the waterfall to enjoy the sound of water and its tranquility... My toddler loves the inner playground, the first one (nearby the entrance) is not recommended as it has broken here and there. There are also some gymnastic tools and a reflexology path for public use Others who are more adventurous would love jungle-trekking... More

Good place to enjoy the environment. Walking exercise can be changeling depending on your fitness level.

Local people do come here for their daily exercise so I suggest if you want some peaceful time go early morning or late afternoon and avoid weekends. It is a very big park so take a snapshot of the map when you enter. Go to the uphill trail and you will see yourself breathing fresh air and really nice trees!... More

This was a 10 minute walk from the Radisson or Capital Suites Hotels, and it is a lovely park. Lots of locals walking around. Pretty waterfall - many different walks to take throughout the park - a good map showing different routes. Nice place to be surrounded by trees within the city. I enjoyed my morning here.

Tasek lama is located not far from the city area. It is a place for the local to exercise or to just to have a walk to enjoy the scenery. If you love hiking, here is the place. You even can view bandar seri begawan from some of the peak.

Found this a very in crowded place to walk around. Maybe the time of year or time of day? A nice short walk on a paved path takes you on a circuit to a waterfall and passes areas for play and exercise equipment. A larger circuit is part paved and partly quite difficult track. Beyond that again are jungle tracks... More

This park is lovely. There are different routes to choose between. There is one really easy path to following, and if you want a more challenging hike that is also possible. The park is well maintained. There is a playground for kids together with training facilities for adults. Unfortunately we did visit the park after a very dry period, so... More
