What other tourists said about the Lake Garden Park

“Peace and quiet”

It’s refreshing. After a long tiring week, it’s good to come here and having a piece of mind. It’s natural environment make you feeling comfortable and satisfied.

“Wonderful oasis in the city”

This is a must when visiting KL. There is something for everyone but make sure you keep your bearings. Very clean and tidy, no rubbish.

“Fresh Air beside a busy city center”

The Taman Tasik Perdana is composed of various sections – Taman Orkid, Taman Burung, Taman Bunga Raya, Deer Park, Mouse Deer Park and close to the Tunku Abdul Rahman Memorial, Planetarium Negara and Islamic Art Museum.

Its a hill covered with trees and beside a small lake who would realize that beside the busy streets of KL is a place which one could take a rest, relax, leisurely hike and breathe fresh air and just walking distance from Dataran Merdeka , Pasar Seni, Masjid Negara and Petaling Street.

I guess the place requires additional signage. In fact three of us got somewhat lost but it was quite an experience !!!

“Beautiful, peaceful, wonderful”

Surprisingly, the Lake Gardens don’t get as many tourists as I would have thought… we have visited this area for more than 14 years, and it has remained tranquil and sweet… we used to take our Golden retriever Peaches for walks, and never did we come across anyone objecting.

The Lake Gardens includes the Islamic Arts Museum, the Bird Park, the Orchids Park, the Butterfly Park and some more… for us, its one of the main things that make Kuala Lumpur such a lovely place to live and visit.

“High tea at the Lake Gardens”

Enjoyed a high tea at the Lake Gardens & I felt like a princess. (Royalty have dined there) The food was divine & would highly recommend it. I especially loved the cucumber sandwiches. The surroundings & the interior were stunning.

My Mum & children took me there for a surprise birthday & we were all very impressed. Bit of a drive but lots to see on the way.
