Well preserve garden, great for morning walk

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.

The lame of course is nice and relaxing and quiet. One can just walk or rent a bicycle to go around the lake but not in car. There's a medium size playground here which is good for kids. We went for the boat riding but the lake itself is very dirty and smelly. so do the life jackets!! This is... More

Ahhh....the great outdoor park. Surrounded by lush and big trees, plenty of space and a cool lake makes it place to kick back, relax and enjoy a good picnic with the family.

Beautiful place for a stroll or a jog. Take a boat ride to the center of the lake. If you're lucky, you may catch sight of the water monitors in the lake.

The lakes are the main attraction in Taiping because it is easily accessible, comparing to Maxwell Hill Bukit Laurut. Going round the lakes is a Wonderful experience. You will enjoy the tranquillity. For food, if you are comfortable with the hawker centre, then try the Chinese restaurant at Flemington Hotel

Never there is a place like this in Malaysia, especially in a small town of Taiping. Lake Garden is beautiful in morning, noon and night, went there for a morning jog, photo shooting at noon, best scene is at sunset moment. Night is a bit dark but quite relaxing. Good for natural lover and photographer.
