5 Fun Things to Do in Lake Park

Kuala Lumpur’s premier nature parks

Taman Botani Perdana, known to the locals as Lake Gardens, is a sprawling 227-acre park located right in the middle of Kuala Lumpur. One of the premier parks in the country, the Lake Gardens have a host of attractions, and there’s something for everyone, whether you’re a nature lover or an art enthusiast. Here we list five things to see and do if you have an afternoon to spare and fancy getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Explore the Park by Segway

Don’t fancy walking all throughout the heat and humidity but still want to see all that Lake Gardens has to offer? Take part in a Segway tour for a fun way to see the park! For RM299, the tour starts at National Museum and will take you around the gardens and Deer Park, all in about one hour. If you’re not familiar with Segway, no problem! The tour guides will first teach you how to balance yourself on the cool transportation system, and you’ll be off before you know it!

Botanical Garden

One of the focal points for Nature in Kuala Lumpur, the main botanical park at Lake Garden will definitely serve as a refuge if you’re in dire need of a break from all the city fuss. The air is fresh and crisp here, and if you visit during the mornings, you’ll come across people jogging and ladies practicing tai chi (you can participate, too!). We would recommend an afternoon picnic to fully enjoy the scenery, or if you want to keep moving a walk around the greens is also another great way to experience the park.

Kuala Lumpur Bird Park

This one is for the bird enthusiasts. One of the largest free-flight walk-in aviaries in the world, visitors are treated to some of most beautiful bird species roaming around in the lush greenery of the park, such as the Indian blue peacock and the yellow-billed stork. Daily programmes such as the bird show and eagle feeding are perfect for those who would like a closer interaction with these exciting creatures, and at RM48 per entry, KL Bird Park is certainly something to be experienced when in Lake Gardens. Just remember to watch your step and wear comfortable footwear! Read More...

Islamic Arts Museum

Housing over 7,000 artefacts in its impressive two-storey structure, the Islamic Arts Museum will certainly fascinate you, offering a different side of the world’s second biggest religion, Islam. Here you can find exhibitions of clothing, furniture, weaponry, and also detailed models of famous mosques around the world, notably Masjid Al-Haram in Mecca and Masjid Nabawi in Medina.

Orchid Park

If you can’t get enough of the greenery of the lush botanical park, head on down to the Orchid Park across the road from KL Bird Park and check out the lovely flowers. Showcasing over 3,000 species of orchids, the park is beautifully laid-out, with potted plants and wild ones gracing the landscape. Entrance is free on weekdays but RM1 on weekends and public holidays, but this would be the best time to hit the park – it turns into an orchid bazaar where cut flowers and fresh orchids are sold at relatively cheap prices. Buy some to take home!
