KUALA LUMPUR - LAKE GARDENS
Today, its landscaped hills and beautiful trails provide an escape for city dwellers out for a jog or some early morning t'ai chi. Its main attraction is the lake surrounded by lush greenery in a 92ha. (227 acres) parkland that provides a refreshing ambience.
Roam through the aviaries at the Bird Park and Butterfly Park. Or take a stroll through the beautiful Deer Park and Orchid Garden, which are all reachable either by foot or by regular shuttle buses. From the gardens, you can also visit other attractions such as the National Monument, the Planetarium and the Islamic Museum.
Carcosa Seri Negara is within the Lake Gardens. They serve scones that melt in your mouth and English tea on the verandah in the cool afternoons.
How to get there
Entrances to the Lake Gardens are on Jalan Parlimen and behind the National Mosque.
