Kandawgyi Park, Yangon (Rangoon)

3.7
#1 of 13 in Parks in Yangon (Rangoon)
A popular outing spot for locals with plenty of shady trees, Kandawgyi Park provides water and greenery in downtown Yangon. Join the locals with a picnic or a leisure walk among the well-manicured gardens. In the middle of the 110 hectare (272 acre) grounds lies a lake with a circumference of 8 km (5 mi). Stroll across the long wide boardwalk over the water to admire water lilies, a family of black swans, and the iconic gilt royal barge--now a classy floating restaurant. Some street vendors sell refreshments. The park is a popular venue for concerts.

  • Heritage... former colony British that left you there? Great Park but in poor condition. .... Work is underway! Tourists coming will be able to enjoy balloon sir site, another vision of some Burmese Rangoon had decided to set up their tents on the only way of crossing OWL an obstacle course

  • We drove for the Golden ship to the Kandawgyi Park. Something one rarely sees and is well worth a visit! The paths around the Lake are already partly quite rotten and it feels not just at home.

  • Well, it's the one and only place to walk around throughout the long wooden passages over Kandawgyi lake. It's pretty good to take fancy photo with natural scenes. Ah... there is also a swimming pool where I often go swimming. Moreover, there are many things that will please you and just go find it out....
  • A great recreational place for both locals and foreigners. Large space and enjoy the Mingalar Hot Air-Balloon and the Zoo which is just in the area.
  • Scenic and peaceful. Of the several entrances to the park, I recommend the one in front of the Yangon Zoological Garden entrance, which leads directly to a boardwalk that offers amazing views of the lake, the Kandawgyi Hotel, and the imposing Karaweik Palace. Be careful at the boardwalk as there are loose wooden planks and large gaps between them. There aren't a lot of places to run to when it starts raining so it's a good idea to bring an umbrella or a poncho. Bring food and water if you plan to spend many hours here as there's very few food places nearby.
  • Public park. Good for family picnic. Nice lake view. Near famous Shwedagone pagoda.
  • Absolutely loved it! Only sorry we hadn’t set aside a half day to take a leisurely stroll. Would love to go back with a good book and a cold bottle of water.
