Must see · Garden · Nature / Park
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. Make Taiping Lake Gardens part of your personalized Taiping itinerary using our Taiping route planner.

  • The stroll amongst this nature wonders is just superb. To my surprised, we were also greeted to a wonderful smiles from strangers! It must be the air. Immersed yourself in the surrounding. You will not regret it.
  • I love the fact they municipal council take care of the garden. Good place for family gathering and outing. 🤗
  • Perfect place for recreation. Whether it's a walk or jog round the lake or to take a ride in the lake on a paddle boat. Scenic roads lined by mature rainforest trees that branches across the roads.
  • Beautiful. You can take great pictures here so those wedding photos in Cameron? I'd say skip that and come here instead. I spent a few hours taking different paths in the park. It feels like you're in a different world for a while. Highly recommended of you love nature.
  • One of the best lake garden in the country, if not the best... With Maxwell Hill in the background, it makes for one of the most picturesque places in Malaysia. Also one of the best place to observe wildlife, with many birds, monitor lizards and otters inhabit the area.
