“Sunday morning popular spot”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Good street food to eat. Different communitites/groups came in together. Saw an iguana lover group. There were some music classes going on too, mainly for violins & keyboards. Not sure if that had been for free or not. The trees made it cool. Overall, a good place to hang out.

“Refreshing!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Menteng is a posh area, where the houses are more like mansions, the streets are tree-lined, clean & quiet & the park is located here, just a stone's throw away from some embassies too.

The park is really pretty, very well maintained & has an air of tranquility - hard to imagine that beyond the park is the hustle & bustle of downtown Jakarta! It's great for a walk about or just to sit & chill. The birds & bird houses, the sculptures, the pretty trees & well manicured lawn are all visual treats & to complement this, you have music!

We were very lucky to have been able to visit the park on a Sunday, a day when the kids come to the park to practise music. We were there at about 11ish in the morning & the musicians were already in full swing. They were really young, ranging from ages about 8 to mid-teens. They weren't perfect, but you have to praise them for their commitment in striving to be better - after all, that's exactly why they were here.

OK, there's not a whole lot you could do here, still, it's nice to drop by. Maybe pack some sandwiches, some drinks, have a little picnic & just soak in the beauty & tranquility of the park.

“Oasis in a concrete jungle”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We headed here for a bit of a getaway from the 'real' Jakarta and were pleasantly surprised by how relaxing it was. The park is clean and very well kept, frequented by different birds and surrounded on the outside by busy roads and street vendors selling usual Jakarta food fare. The park is not huge, but certainly lovely to have a pleasant stroll around or somewhere quiet to sit and read. We also had the pleasure of a violin serenade for a small donation. There is a gazebo area to sit, toilet facilities and also various sculptures to look at. Highly recommended to recharge the batteries for those who can't afford to head out of the city.

“Large trees, birds, violins and artworks”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Even in concrete jungle of downtown of Jakarta, you still can find a hideous park. A good place for contemplation. Breathe the air, see the large trees and the birds. Pigeons and doves flocking around plaza. Enjoy the sound of music from teens rehearsing their violins skill. Take a walk and pay more attention to some art work inside the park.

“Good Park”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

I guess this is the only park in Jakarta that you still can have a walk.
