About
The National Botanical Garden Shah Alam which was previously known as TPM and which was initially known as Bukit Cerakah Agriculture Park was developed on 24th April 1986 before it was promulgated as the Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam Agriculture Park Malaysia by the late Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Al-Haj ibni Hishamuddin Alam Shah Al-Haj in 1991. The name TBNSA conferred to the park now is in line with the decision made by the Cabinet of Ministers in 2007 to further develop TBNSA as a replacement to TPM. The objective for the development of TBNSA is to create a national centre of excellence within the fields of education, scientific research and conservation for the development of botanical, horticulture, agriculture and other various related fields.

Good scenery but with limited service and facilities
Jan 2019 • Family
The place is good, a Lot of greenery and adventure. However, the place is not well served for tourists. you feel that the place is primarily for Malaysian locals.

Nice place for a picnic or extreme park activity
Feb 2018 • Family
Went to this place with my family and really like it.
The entrance fee was very reasonable at RM3. There’s bus to take you inside, you can walk or rent a bike as well if you want.
There’s lots of activity you can do. Be it the extreme Park with rock climbing, canopy walk, flying fox.
There seasonal house
There’s petting zoo
There public pool
Horse riding
And many more

I suggest you bring a picnic basket with you if you plan a visit as food place is right at the entrance and not so variety

Nice park but cruel to animals
Dec 2017 • Family
We went there on the spur of the moment after visiting the blue mosque and did not know what to expect. The grounds are huge (fruit farm is 2.5 km from entrance) but bikes are available. We got there late so we did not have much time left and headed for the rice paddies (nice) and on to the animal park. Big mistake! We found that the bunny park (costs extra) was closed. What we found on the other side of the road can only be described as a cat prison!! A small (app. 8 x 3 m) cage that contained about a dozen cats that were fighting and screaming like crazy, which is to be expected when you keep them that way. Horrific, my children very nearly cried (we have cats at home) and I found it hard to stomach. After that none of us were in the mood to continue our walk and left. The staff I talked to about this did not seem to understand my concerns (well they do get food dont they). What a shame, the park itself is a very nice place as far as we could tell.

Great place to commune with Nature
Aug 2016 • Family
National Botanical Garden was opened in 1986. It goes by many names. Initially when it was opened, it was known as Bukit Cerakah Forest Reserve, later Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam. The name was later changed to Malaysia Agriculture Park. In 2011 it was renamed Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam or National Botanical Garden Shah Alam. The park is huge, over 200 acres comprising of jungle, spice and vegetable garden, lakes, paintball valley, animal park and four seasons temperature house. Much of the parks built up landscaping like bridges, watch towers, gazebos and pathways are in disrepair and need urgent maintenance and upkeep. Activities here include hiking, walking, cycling, fishing and exploring. The air here is fresh and it is a great place to commune with Nature.

Family Gathering and exercise
May 2016 • Family
A weekend with family ..away from the clamor of busy streets and polluted air.. this place is a refreshing place to have gathering and activities.. The location and surrounding of tropical forests like is very green and alarmingly a huge area if u want to go exploring....
However, activities like cycling and having a walk is good since trees are big here and fresh air...
I just wish that this place better mantained and creatively more activities happening here...
Potential for a good picnic and jungle trekking if given more thought to it...help brings more people giving for beter reviews...sad to see this plce wasted to become a rundown trekking area...
