KLCC Park

Located in the very heart of the city, and directly below the famous Petronas Twin Towers, is this lush, well landscaped park of tropical fauna and dancing fountains. The park was designed to showcase a heritage of tropical greenery by integrating man's creation with nature. The park itself contrasts as a calm environment in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city. The park features many combinations of man-made design such as cements, water features and also natural features such as trees, shrubs, stones and wood. Elements of shape and topography were created to give an illusion of space. The combination of trees, shrubs and sculptures were arranged to provide colour and form to the park.

Conservation and bio-diversity was a major influence in the creation of the park. 23 of the mature and rarer specimens were saved from the old Selangor Turf Club and transplanted into the park grounds. 1,900 indigenous trees and 66 species of palms were planted in the park to promote bio-diversity. The trees were deliberately selected to attract local and migratory birds.

The park offers recreational activities such as children’s playgrounds and wading pools, as well as a jogging track. Another striking feature of the park is the Lake Symphony which comprises two water fountains. Located at the esplanade outside Suria KLCC, the Lake Symphony is programmed to provide 150 magical dramatic animations. The total effect is a light hearted and gregarious atmosphere.

Titiwangsa Lake Gardens

Located beside Jalan Tun Razak in the centre of Kuala Lumpur, the park is just a few steps away from other tourist destinations such as the National Library, Istana Budaya, National Gallery and the Sutra Dance Theatre. Several large varieties of fish are bred in the lakes. The park is equipped with a lot of facilities suitable for jogging, canoeing, aqua biking and other outdoor activities. Two of the most unique attractions of the parks is the radio control car racing track and the horse riding facility. There is also a floating restaurant at the edge of the lake and a few stalls selling drinks and food in the park.

Lake Gardens

The Lake Gardens is a tranquil green lung situated right in the middle of the city. The 92-hectare park contains two lakes, and landscaping that offer a serene view for sore eyes. The park also offers a variety of facilities for the health conscious such as jogging tracks and an exercise par course.

Within the KL Lake Gardens you will also find the KL Bird Park, Butterfly Park, Deer Park and the beautiful Orchid and Hibiscus Gardens.

Bird Park

Established in 1991, the Bird Park is the tallest walk-in free-flight aviary in the world and is home to over 200 species of birds. With more than 3,000 birds, made up of mainly Asian species, nature lovers will relish looking out for a myriad of colourful winged wonders in these beautifully landscaped surroundings. The star attractions at the park include ostriches, hornbills, eagles, flamingos, peacocks and parrots. It is also worthwhile to note the feeding times. And twice a day, there is the bird show, which features plenty of parrot tricks that is sure to keep the youngsters entertained.

One of park's most extraordinary feature is that in Zone 1, 2 and 3, birds are let free in the aviary which closely resembles their natural habitat. With this free-flight concept, birds are able to breed naturally in this unique environment.

The park is open daily from 9 am to 6 pm. Admission is RM48 for adults (RM25 with MyKad) and RM38 for children (RM12 with MyKad).
