    Quick Cart Ride
    It was pretty warm the day we visited but we stumbled upon an electric cart option of touring the park. It was only 15MYR per person and we circled most of the park with various stops along the way at the playground, the lake and one of the gardens. It was a little bumpy but gave us a decent overview of the different areas of the park but allowed us to save a lot of time and reduced our sweating quite a bit. Having just visited the National Botanical Garden in Singapore that one set the bar quite high but overall this was a good place to visit popular with many locals.

    Lovely place to escape the hustle and bustle and see life
    Had a walk around the gardens on my way back to sentral station and the airport. It is a beautiful garden in the hustle and bustle of the city. If I was staying in town I likely would have been one of the many jogging around the expansive, well manicured and eye catching gardens, I saw a young football team being put through their paces around the park and up and down the steps, school graduants taking their photos and actors working in the park, so great to see the varied use of this fantastic space.

    Beautiful botanical gardens
    An oasis in middle of crumpled city, if you want to refresh and fed of shopping malls this is a perfect place to visit. It’s shame buggy service is not free. Children play area is good enough.

    Challenging for Seniors.
    We looked forward to our visit to the gardens and departed somewhat disappointed. There are plenty of lawned areas, lush greenery, abundant flora, water and rock features and special display areas. Great for younger legs and not too friendly for seniors with the hills and contours and the large expanses of concrete pathways. Needs better signage to supplement the major signboards at the major entry points. The heat and humidity didn't help. It covers an area of approx. 92 hectares and is regarded as a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet we encountered only 4 other adults and 2 children. There was no activity at either the Bird Park or Butterfly Park and we decided to pass.

    A lovely green park in the middle of the city
    First and foremost, it is a lovely green park in the middle of a crowded city. Its existence as an urban green space is its biggest value. A very pleasant place to walk or jog amongst greenery and get away from the concrete jungle. Some places to sit and rest in shade. Not many people despite my visit on a public holiday. Unlike most other botanic gardens around the world, there were very few signs with information about the plants. Very few signs and maps around the gardens to show where you are and what else there is to be seen. Some of the paths and shade structures were cracked and needed some renovation, though still very functional. Getting there on foot and public transport is possible, but requires determination because there are not many signs nor maps (not unlike many other attractions in KL). Nevertheless, a very pleasant place to visit to get away from the concrete and commercialism and crowds of the city.

Not the kind of park to walk around and enjoy nature as there are no footpaths at all. You really need to use the golf carts @ RM15 a seat for 1-2 hour tour.
The so called deer park has two deer and are fenced off about 150 meters from the viewing area.
Unless you’re prepared to pay to see the bird enclosure there is no point coming here.

Situated within the Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park, which covers an area of more than 170 acres located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. There are many majestic trees, waterfalls, lakes and fountains to see. In our opinion, coming from UK, the gardens are really more like an enormous park. We spent a lovely couple of hours wandering around and exploring the different areas.

We had read that The Hibiscus Gardens were recommended a visit, but at the moment we would not recommended as very small and nothing really to see in late February, but I guess once Orchid House has been renovated and back open again it will be more worthwhile to see, as they are very close together on far edge of park. Sunken Garden was nice to see, but much smaller than expected. We had read about the Bamboo Playhouse and we wandered by but not much to see. Our favourite parts were just getting lots in the many trees, the views across the lake and finding hidden areas in the park.

Lots of fun routes to take if you like walking and exploring as we do. Spent over 3 hours here. The lake is very picturesque and we got some good photos with skyline in the background.

Dozens of pokestop and gyms! The cafe by the lake was reasonably priced, good for sit down and cool drink.

Combine with a visit to the nearby Butterfly Park and Bird Park, which are both well worth a visit (reviewed separately) and just a short walk away.

Entrance to the gardens is free so can't complain really! Open 7am to 8pm Mondays to Sundays. Escape the city and wander amongst the trees for a while.

The botanical garden was such a great place to visit at Kuala Lumpur .It is for free so no tickets are needed to enter unlike bird and eco parks ! I enjoyed the great green landscapes together with the beautiful lake ❤️the garden was so peaceful and well equipped to practice sports and cycling in the morning. I also enjoyed seeing many trees from different types with barcodes on them explaining their rare types ! There was a mini open bus there charging little money to give u a nice tour around the park if you ever felt tired to walk it all by yourself. Such a wonderful park to feast ur eye on 🪴

Built in 1889, this piece of paradise has changed names many times maybe to shed it's British era colonial past and make it sound more Malaysian. This botanical garden seems to be thriving in humid weather and provides not only relief, comfort in heat, but all kinds of educational, learning and conservation efforts that city is making to promote awareness and importance of having a nature presence in an urban jungle like KL.

There are many attractions within the whole area. If you just want a city park experience, the entry is free with multiple entry points and you have access to ponds, lake, mini waterfalls, shaded tree areas, historic heritage buildings and monuments. For animal lovers there's a butterfly museum, deer and bird park.
And those with deeper appreciation for natural world, there are various botanical gardens with rare plants/flowers/trees that are not only native to the region but from different parts of the the world that can also grow in tropic climate.

It's one place I can never get tired of.

This 220 acre park located near Kuala Lumpur city centre with a lake is attractive, but the maintenance is quite poor. At one end are pools into which waste water flows continually into a stagnant pool, emitting a foul smell. Nearby is a broken waterfall which has stopped working for years. At the bottom of the once beautiful waterfall are stagnent pools of water.

We arrived at 8.30 am. Parked at a multi-storey parking just next to the entrance to Taman Botani Perdana.
Definitely the best place to park. ( WAZE : Rebung Restaurant Dato Chef Ismail as the restaurant is on the 5th floor)
Then we walked to the entrance ( about 30 m)

Park had very few signages. We followed Google Map to get around the park. TQ Google!

Too many things to see and admire . Full of flora & fauna, mini parks, playgrounds and one big lake. Easily 6500 steps, we managed to finish in 2 hours. But we couldn’t cover the whole area..its too big.

Will come again.

I spent the early morning here walking around the areas before the heat really started to kick in. Probably saw around half the park in only an hour and a half of walking with a lot of stopping for pictures (and also trying to figure out where to go next).

By 9:00 I was already starting to feel the heat but I was also wearing a backpack that was doing me no favors. Can get surprisingly hilly at some points which is something to keep in mind.

Overall though I enjoyed the relative peace and quiet offered by the space. I didn't get to see the mini waterfalls, butterfly park or mini stonehenge as I seemed to only walk through one side of the park, but I guess that just goes to show you how much there is / how spread out it can get.

It's no Gardens By The Bay, but it's well maintained and worthy of a visit alongside the nearby Islamic Arts Museum.

I could’ve walked around here forever. The gardens are beautiful and extensive. It is luscious and green and there is a lot to see! Waterfalls, a river, lots of monitors, and an abundance of flowers, even deer- everything you could want in a botanic garden. I would recommend being prepared with food and water when you go there as the grounds are big and you have a lot of space in between facilities, but that is expected from gardens.

Given all the restrictions on public gatherings etc we were suprised by how crowded the gardens were. The gardens are nice and generally well maintained. There is no entry fee. Best to go in the morning in order to avoid the heat of the day.
