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.
Next is the famous Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, the home of more than 3000 birds from 200 species.
The other two remaining parks are the Butterfly Park Kuala Lumpur and the Deer Park Kuala Lumpur.
In the Butterfly Park, you can find over 6000 butterflies from more than 120 different species.
The Deer Park also has several species of deer for visitors to see and feed. The
National Monument Kuala Lumpur is just opposite the Lake Gardens. Take the chance to
have a look and stroll around this historical site of Malaysia. The Lake Gardens is
an awfully huge place that may leave you with aching feet if you try to walk the
There is transportation provided at the cost of RM0.50 per person to take you around
the whole park. In that way you will be able to visit the entire garden without any
muscle aches. Around the Lake Gardens are the Islamic Art Museum and the National Mosque.
Do not miss the chance to visit these two places while you are at the Lake Gardens as
they are just close by. It would be too much of a rush if you try to squeeze visiting
all these places in a day. Hotels in Kuala Lumpur are conveniently located near the
gardens or near public transport. So do not worry about accommodations.
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.
