Perdana Botanical Garden is the oldest and most popular park in Kuala Lumpur. It is conceived by A.R. Venning in 1888. The landscaped hills and beautiful trails hidden away from the noise provide an escape for city dwellers. Its main attraction is the lake surrounded by lush greenery that provides a refreshing ambience.
The garden contains the largest collection of flower gardens and animal parks in Kuala Lumpur.

Hear From Others
Forest trees expand in all areas of the botanical gardens assorting with others flora and fauna, these main garden tracks are suitable for major healthy activities; Walking, Jogging, Cycling and many more. You can easily spot squirrels, the local residents along the trees munching seeds from the trees.
There are lots of water features, and gazebos under which you can sit to shelter from the sun. Roads do wind through the Lake Gardens but I didn’t find noise pollution to be a problem, and as such a lot of enjoyment and relaxing could be undertaken around these waterways and gazebos without being disturbed.
The place was well kept and the walk across from the car park towards the children play area and the lake felt like a breeze. Pleasant weather and fresh air. We stopped for photos, quick drinks and fed the koi fish when we reached the lake, while people were running around having a good time.
