I heard about Taiping lake for long time, and finally make a trip there with family. I didn't regret. The lake was claim, peaceful and beautiful. There are some riding boat and playground. The lake garden is very near to the zoo. So you can visit the night safari in the evening.

Love the old trees around the lakes. We took a walk in the evening and morning around the lake. Nice, green and peaceful garden.

Just drink in the fresh air and soak in the wondrous view. The Lake Gardens is simply superb with its lakes and water lilies, and plants and trees. The raintrees in particular are a sight to behold with their branches reaching out to the lakes. A walk in these gardens is refreshing with the view of the mountain range and... More

Its within walking distance of Taiping town (about 20min) or you can take a taxi. Best early morning (with the mist on the lake and lawns) and also in evening... with local families, people jogging, enjoying the fresh air etc... The road around the lake has got strangely (but nice) old trees that form a canopy over the road. Very... More

It is a place where the old mines were, beautified and currently very well maintained. It is amazing for a jog, bicycle ride and there are even boat rides available. There are many nice trees that are more than a century old.

Do try to walk before 8am as the park gets hotter towards late morning. Spotted a giant horn bill pecking at the tree bark. The lovely rain trees by the side of the road and the reflection from the serene lake make a good photography spot.

Went with my parents and children (7 yrs old & 4 yrs old) for picnic on a weekend. They had fun at the playground near the carpark. There are a few playground allocated at the different part of the garden. You can also go for boat ride.
