The Kuala Selangor Nature Park is a park located by the mouth of Selangor River in Kuala Selangor District, Selangor, Malaysia. It was established by the Selangor state government in 1987 and has been managed by the Malaysian Nature Society on behalf of the state government ever since the park's establishment.With a total area of 2.4km2, the park is a combination of secondary forest and wetland with a man-made coastal bund separating the wetland from the forest. Inside the park itself is a large pond surrounded by another bund. A water lock connecting the pond with the river controls the water level of the pond.The park, as part of the Selangor River estuary, is home to a number of large bird species such as milky storks and herons as well as primates, namely silver leaf monkeys and long-tailed macaques. The area was a breeding ground of an endangered milky stork species before the program was suspended. An abandoned aviary still stands in the middle of the park.

  • Great walks. Lots of birds. Loved watching the mud skippers. Pathways level on flat ground, good for people of all ages. Bring plenty of water.
  • The place is cool but there are many monkeys. And they tell us to walk a lot. That's all. But the place is nice. I suggest for foreigners.
  • I am previledged that I was born and raised in this beautiful Kuala Selangor town. The park is just a walking distance from my parents house ☺ Kuala Selangor Nature Park or known as Taman Alam Kuala Selangor is a mangrove reserved forest which covers over 200 hectares of coastal land (west peninsular Malaysia facing Straits of Malacca sea) where a large part of it is mangrove swamps. Mangrove is a tropical tree species where it grows in swamps or shallow salt water areas. It's unique roots grows from its branches towards the swampy soil at the base of the tree. Typically, mangrove forests are prefered habitat for varieties of fishes, crabs, shrimps and mollusk species (species that have a soft body without a backbone and that usually live in a shell such as snails and clams). This nature park is managed by Malaysian Nature Society on behalf of Selangor state government since it's establishment by the state government in year 1987. Accommodation facilities which available in this park are A-frame huts, chalets, dormitories and a hostel for large group of people. For campers, designated camping site is available upon advance booking. It's varieties of unique faunas and floras attracts researchers, photographers and nature novice from local and international. A place which should not be missed! 😉
  • Spent almost 2 hours strolling through the whole park. One of the best spot to get lost with nature. There is a boardwalk in the middle of mangroves 'jungle', if you are lucky you can spot various birds and monkeys. Most importantly, don't forget to apply mosquito repellent.
  • Not a great place for tour walk in, but is great for Researcher.
