Not a tourist destination like Teluk Cempedak for instance but a functional local park where residence can do their recreational activities. Next to a river bank, mostly shadowed by pine trees, the walkway/jogging track is usable all day long. Ample parking space, food stalls and a comunity space. I hope they continue to look after this park in times to... More

This is a truly relaxing park, where you have a large grove of pine trees next to the sea. Also available is a Malay food court for you to dine alfresco after your walk. A small playground lies next to the food court, to keep the small ones entertained

A lovely and quiet place. Very shady and there's a jogging track wth exercise stations along the track. The beach is just beside and a lovely place for picnics too.

We use to jog here, love the place as it is just by the sea. Lots of activity around this area. You can also find good food around here.

This is the best place for me practicing for my next marathon. I like the sea view and the breeze. Unfortunately it is so different on the evening. People smoking on the jog track. People with kids littering. It is noisy unlike in the morning.

Our family frequents Taman Galore in Kuantan on a regular basis. The location is superb as it is located at the Kuantan River estuary. The park walk way brings you along about 1.8 km of tracks. While you walk past the water front, the pond and the wonderful trees which bring welcoming shade. Every time is a pleasure to visit... More
