Why Lake Gardens Park is special ?

The Lake Gardens of Kuala Lumpur has a long history since 1888. Due to its lush greenery and jogging tracks, the Lake Gardens are usually frequented by joggers or those who just wants some time away from the busy city. The Lake Gardens is located along Jalan Lembah and has two manmade lakes and other parks which attract throngs of visitors.
The Lake Garden's opening in May 1975 was officiated by the second Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Haji Abdul Razak Hussein. Extending over 92 hectares of land, the Lake Gardens houses various parks and gardens. As of today, there are five other gardens and parks which are open to the public daily. They include the Orchid Garden which is filled with over 800 species of orchids. At the Orchid Garden, visitors may take as many pictures as they like and they can even buy a few pots of orchid home. The other garden is the Hibiscus Garden where our national flower grows in abundance.

What to explore at Lake Gardens Park?

There is a jogging track for the runners who can also work out at the many exercise stations along the jogging route. Families with kids in tow might favor the playground more where the kids can squeal in excitement as parents give them a gentle shove on the swing or bounce them up and down the see-saws – definitely quality family time indeed.

If a playground sounds boring for you, get in touch with your environmentalist in you by getting to know the 3,000 over birds within a walk-in aviary in the KL Bird Park within Lake Gardens.

 There are even daily stage feedings and bird shows at around noon each day, so time your visit around then for some bird-fun. The admission fee to the aviary is RM45 for an adult and RM35 for children.

After a long stroll admiring the colorful feathery friends, you’d be thirsty and hungry for some refreshments. Stop at the Hornbill Café which is just next to the bird park’s main entrance. While a spotting of a hornbill is not guaranteed, the café does serve sandwiches, soups and pasta as well as a kids’ menu for the little ones who really love tea time snacks.

If you are game for more of God’s flying creations, there is the KL Butterfly Park within the Lake Gardens too which is home to 6,000 butterflies of 120 species. The park has a landscape of 15,000 plants to create a natural rain forest environment for the butterflies.

How to get to Lake Gardens Park?

The easiest way to get to the Lake Gardens is via taxi. Per trip via taxi should set you back about RM20 from anywhere within the city center. But if you want to opt for a cheaper means of transportation, you can take the RapidKL bus (B101 and B112) and get off at the Dayabumi Complex. From the complex, you can walk to the Lake Gardens. If you plan to take the KTM Kommuter, just remember to stop at the Old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station. You will need to walk towards the National Mosque. The Lake Gardens is just behind the National Mosque.

Take a KTM Komuter train to the Old Kuala Lumpur station. From there cross the street and walk past the National Mosque. You can also walk from KL Sentral, but this is a tricky path along the highway; the distance however is shorter. Alternatively, buses B115, B112, and B101 all stop within a 5-minute walk of Perdama Lake Gardens. Every taxi driver knows how to find the park. To get a taxi back to KL you are best off by walking to the Bird Park, as there are always taxis waiting for customers there.

A very beautiful neatly maintained oasis, right in the heart of the city. It's not overcrowded, has lots of space for walking or even picnic. There is a spacious playground for kids. A good choice to spend day outdoor.
