Escape The City In These Parks

Grace Lee  


  May 14, 2022

For those of us who long for the outdoors activities after being locked down at home for so long, rejoice, for the parks in KL are still mostly open. 


Let’s check out these interesting recreation parks in Klang Valley to burn away your extra calories and enjoy the sceneries that come with spending time in these parks. 


Taman Tasik Permaisuri



Known only as a terraced flower garden in the ’80s, the park has blossomed into a full-fledged 40-hectare recreational park, which now includes a massive lake, fountains, and three outdoor gyms. Marathon workshops sometimes pitch up here because of the hilly, thigh-numbing terrains and a labeled trail that tracks your running distance. The park gets very packed on weekends but you may walk through the foresty bits to avoid the crowd. 


Taman Bukit Jalil



Lengthy jogging trails and steep hills make this instagrammable recreational park a popular spot in the area for running and working out. There's also an outdoor gym, various stamina-testing stations, a reflexology path, and a children's playground. 


Bukit Kiara Park



Conveniently located in the Taman Tun neighborhood, this park features a wide, well-paved path many KLites flock to for a jog or hike in the mornings and evenings. It’s also a popular spot with thrill-seeking cyclists who don’t mind taking on steep trails – just remember to watch out for pedestrians while going downhill. 


Shah Alam Lake Gardens



Shah Alam Lake Gardens is host to a man-made lake surrounding lush greenery perfect for a sunset stroll or a late evening picnic. Lucky visitors will be able to see peacocks, forest chickens, geese, and storks, all of which are reared here. And if all that walking tires you out, dine at the floating seafood restaurant, serving Malaysian delicacies. 


Kepong Metropolitan Park



Tucked away in Kepong is a 95-hectare park filled with lush greenery and a huge lake in the middle. While the park has an excellent jogging track and a cycling lane around the lake, the main attraction here is its large open field. Also known as ‘Taman Layang- Layang’, the park plays host to everyone from children to experienced kite enthusiasts looking to fly kites in the evenings. Don’t worry if you don’t have a kite, there are kite sellers dotted around the park offering plenty of options. Parking can be a problem so we recommend coming in the early evening. 


Putrajaya Tropical Botanical Gardens



Divided into five different themes (Explorer's Trail, Palm Hill, Floral Gardens, Sun Garden, and Lakeside), take a walk along the Canopy Bridge and feast your eyes on the abundant tropical blooms of the garden. The Floral Gardens are a sight to behold with a vast collection of plants from Africa, America, and the Asia Pacific region. Get in some exercise by renting a bicycle or paddle boat and stretch those muscles. 


Hope this article gives you some inspiration on where to spend time for this long weekend.
