Its a nice place for walking,jugging,climbing,sightseeing,refreshing while sitting at the bench near the falls with the sound of water droping. Also with different sound of birds and a sound of monkeys tranfering to other trees.

Went for a long morning walk on the park from my hotel, and it was very remarkable. The park contains almost a forest with lush greeneries and flowers. It also offers a waterfall experience within the site, and some small hills. Not too much crowd in the morning. The park is massive. Recommendable ~

We walked both the short and long trail. On the trail the lookout tower was closed. This is a dirt track carved out of the forest. Rope hand rails are there is the more challenging places.

This park is a tranquil getaway in the heart of the city. It's a huge park with rich collection of beautiful plants & trees,well maintained jogging/walk ways & jungle-trekking routes. Lot of Macaques are there. Heading away from the lower level,paths & steps lead up to a ridge offering a bird's eye view of a section of Kampong Ayer &... More

it was only walking distance to radission hotel I stayed, hotel will provide u a detail map, it was easy to find and was easy to walk, the waterfall was however smaller than I expected but do recommend people to visit if you live in radission hotel or nearby.

A peaceful green area within easy reach of the CBD and an opportunity to view macaque monkeys up close as well as get some exercise.

Huge park by any standard. There is a massive collection of beautiful plants and a small water falls. Ideal for photography. It gets extremely hot and humid.

Great place to relax or in my case to work out there; jogging. Air relatively clean although in the city and water at the waterfall is clean but don't get too close to the water in the evenings during sunset as there are shadows "swimming/darting" in the water if you look down from the pavilion. Shadows can also be seen... More

I love the short walks to the waterfall to enjoy the sound of water and its tranquility... My toddler loves the inner playground, the first one (nearby the entrance) is not recommended as it has broken here and there. There are also some gymnastic tools and a reflexology path for public use Others who are more adventurous would love jungle-trekking... More

Good place to enjoy the environment. Walking exercise can be changeling depending on your fitness level.
