traveling back from penang, saw the sign so drove in. the lake is a well maintained area. the more you look the more plants you see. the forest tree branches arch over sealed areas ,then lower close to grass & watered areas. ferns & diff plants grow ever where, open your eyes. on the lake, paddle boats or a powered tourist ride about the lake. take time go on a easy walk around the lake or area, take water, didnt see any venders.

A very pleasant place to stroll in the early morning or late afternoon. Excellent for bird-watchers.
One's enjoyment is much reduced by the young men riding their motor bikes on the footpaths. The local authority really should stop these pests!

I always like this place since I was 9 when I first came to this town. The shades of the rain trees, the lake and also the "noise' from the zoo. What I dislike about the development surrounding the area, MUST BE CONTROLLED. Also do not put too much "structure" in the area. Just leave as it is

There is probably no place in the world as green as Taiping's Lake Gardens Old tin mining digs have been carefully landscaped into a series of lakes surrounded by verdant immaculately maintained landscapes of grass and tropical tress, the most captivating of which are the century old rain trees whose branches stretch down to the ground. This is a wonderful place for a walk or take a swan boat out on the lake or visit any number of close by food courts for authentic Malay, Indian, and Chinese cuisine.

Also situated in the garden is the Taiping Zoo - a remarkable zoo for a city this small.
