If you are travelling on business, dont forget to pack a your gear as the 1hour jog in the morning is surely worth the run. Fresh air, bird chirping, great view; its a sight you would not want to miss.

Tranquil area with spectacular views and plenty of shaded walks. You can walk through the gardens to visit Taiping Zoo a worthwhile trip.

Only Okay becuase of the lack of botanical specimens planted. Also they manicure the sure line and typical plastic litters the shoreline. It would be great if theu stopped manicuring right up to the waterline and let indigenopus water, bog, and shoreline plants grow primarily to encourage more diverse wildlife. For example where are the frogs there is plenty of water. Also for me way too much open space that could be filled with a wide range of great trees and shrubs re make it more of a botanical garden. I wish the plants there had labels for identification. Plenty o great spots to take your tablet or notebook and watch a movie. Fantastic so close to city centre

A lake surrounding by big big trees. Very big garden for people to walk around, chit chating and resting. Very nice place. Feel comfortable and relax just sitting beside and enjoy the scenery.

Taiping Lake Garden is meant for recreational purposes but at peak hours, it was congested with vehicle and the air is pretty polluted. The trees and views are fantastically amazing.

Running path there is pretty narrow and uneven. The separation distance between running path and passing vehicle is too close for comfort. Joggers and runners resorted to run on the roadside, right beside the vehicle.
