- I visited this place in a group of just below 20 on 12 Dec in the morning. It was our alternate site from Ayer Keroh Recreational Forest because we wanted to do a walking trek where the latter do not have. Based on website information, the forest park was opened in 2005. You can access the site by car and there is free parking outside the park. There is a fitness area and a small area for overnight camp and field cooking. There is a walking trek of 1.6 km long and it is a cement path throughout the length of the walk. At about 500 m from start line there is an up-slope which takes a little effort but should be easy for physically fit individuals. However, down slope was a little slippery because of moss grown on the footpath - it was raining the night before and the moss would imply that not many people visit the park - I believe it has seen better days since 2005. However, we did see two or three people walking the trek when we were there. There are at least three large aluminium roof shelters on cemented floor spread about 500m apart from each other that provide a safe haven in case of inclement weather. During our outing, we saw two dead falls across the footpath about 600 m apart from each other. We were told that they had just fallen the night before.
We finished our walk in an hour because it was a guided tour by a rep from the forestry dept who made stops to educate us on the type of trees that we see along the trek.
What is sad in our visit is to see a lack of maintenance in the park - and I was told its a norm in Malaysia. My local tour guide could only hang down his head in embarrassment. I don't understand how this can go on in a country striving achieve develop status. Things look jaded and worn out. The most puzzling are the toilets which are not maintained at all - no water in the cubicles for flushing and toilet bowls are filthy with excrement. However, thankfully, the taps outside the toilets still have running water on the dilapidated wash basins.
Malaysia is endowed with scenic and interesting forest trails. Just hope their citizens can pressed for more to be done on their parks so that it benefits everybody.Written 13 December 2016
