Nice hideaway when you want to avoid the city madness and have a look at the monkey family. Nice spots where to sit and enjoy the silence.

The raintrees are so majestic while the tranquility of the lake captured the essence of Taiping as an old town. However, rubbish were still thrown everywhere (not sure if monkeys involved in taking the thrash out). You may visit the lake anytime unless its raining. Paddle boats & bicycles are available for rent but unsure of the rate. Locals jogs... More

This is an ideal place for photo taking and morning workout. You are like walking on the pond and the the trees here are the most beautiful flora that you need to spend time on. Try walking away from the road side. There is walkways inbound.

I really enjoyed goin here as just the view alone was breathtaking! The kids enjoyed the swan ride at the lake. The trees here are unique and beautiful. A really nice place to picnic and have a nice day outside with the family!

Surprisingly, this garden is well preserved, different from other recreational park in Malaysia. The environment is quite and great for relaxing.

Love the scenic view of the place. You can also rent the little paddle boat to check out the lake. It is pretty warm in the day time. Bear in time it is always rain in Taiping in the afternoon. So do bring an umbrella ready with you. Free public parking available as well in front of the lake

It is my first time here. As it was along the way for our drive from Penang to Kuala Lumpur, we decided to move a trip there for some pictures and lunch break. It is about 30mins detour off the NS highway. The place is made up by multiple lakes and with the majestic mountain as the backdrop.
