Good place to walk around. Purposely detour to have a look of the Gardens, been years since my last visit. Help me to find some good memories. You can just spend the entire afternoon, relax, and enjoy the nice scene. Besides that, there's not much to do :) Bring your own games

A nice place to go for a stroll with its scenic view. The paths are lined with big trees and greenery. A good place to jog around with the view of the lake around. However, there are a lot of dried leaves in the water making it look a bit dirty.

Very calm and serene area. Not many people here even during the weekend. Good to walk around and enjoy the view.

Honestly, want to spend more time here, the place is very good to relaxing, but I'm too afraid with the monkey around the street 😂😜

Nice hideaway when you want to avoid the city madness and have a look at the monkey family. Nice spots where to sit and enjoy the silence.

The raintrees are so majestic while the tranquility of the lake captured the essence of Taiping as an old town. However, rubbish were still thrown everywhere (not sure if monkeys involved in taking the thrash out). You may visit the lake anytime unless its raining. Paddle boats & bicycles are available for rent but unsure of the rate. Locals jogs... More

This is an ideal place for photo taking and morning workout. You are like walking on the pond and the the trees here are the most beautiful flora that you need to spend time on. Try walking away from the road side. There is walkways inbound.
