Take a stroll along the paths and bridges that crisscross the peaceful scenery of Taiping Lake Gardens, the oldest public garden in Malaysia. Established in 1880 during British colonial rule, this garden features rows of ancient angsana--"rain trees"--which stretch their branches over the water. Take a gentle pedal boat ride across the lake, blow off some steam at the roller-skating rink or the playground, and wander through the fragrant tulip gardens. The park contains ten artificial lakes and ponds, as well as a lotus pool.

  • Nice weather.must go place in Taiping. Always bring an umbrella, it may rain because Taiping is the wettest town in Malaysia. IT RAINS EVERYDAY IN TAIPING GUARANTEED.the Burmese pool and war cemetery is nearby too.
  • Beautiful natural landscape, second only to Perdana Lake Gardens. Amazing. The only bad thing is that there are no barriers to forbid moronic motorcyclist from riding along the walk path. These are lazy local Taiping people who do not care to walk inside the lake garden. MPT please take note!
  • Nice Natural Lake in Taiping. You may enjoy nice sunrise and sunset scenario in the morning or evening. There are root rowboat service in the afternoon for tourist to have a lake tour.
  • The lake gardens were formed when a former tinmine was abandoned. After some landscaping it is now a nice place for an afternoon stroll.
