Tasik Titiwangsa

Tasik Titiwangsa or Titiwangsa Lake is located around 6KM north of KL City Centre. The lake is located nearby several attractions like the National Art Gallery and National Performing Art Theater (Istana Budaya). It is also walking distant to the National Library and a sport stadium.

It was a mining land, then transformed into a lake with bridge, trees, water fountain, jogging tracks, horse ridding facility, and a Malay restaurant. The locals come here for jogging, walking, group activities, enjoying the green park and fishing. Horse ridding and boat ridding are available during weekends and public holiday.

The Lake is worth visiting because the views of the city skylines and Batu Caves karst mountains. Otherwise it is just a lake with clear water.

If you are driving, You can reach here via Jalan Tun Razak, and make an U turn on Jalan Pahang roundabout and turn left on Jalan Kuantan. There are plenty of free legal car parks on the roadside near the lake. I don't recommend you to walk here from City Centre, due to heavy traffics on the road and the hot and humid weather. I think the easiest way to reach here is by the City Monorail to Titiwangsa Station and take a taxi from here.

Lake Gardens

Most of the museums in Kuala Lumpur are situated around or close to the Lake Gardens, which makes it easy to combine the visit (or get into one of the museums if the weather is not the best for a park visit). Unfortunately, there are many parks in Kuala Lumpur which are called Lake Gardens (especially the ones in Titiwangsa in the north of the city which has a theatre resembling the National Mosque), but the one usually meant is the one to the west of Merdeka Square and the train station. Lake Gardens (or Taman Tasik Perdana) is the oldest park in KL and one of the most popular. You will see locals of all ethnic groups as well as tourists jogging, walking or just relaxing. Within Lake Gardens, you will find many smaller parks and gardens, such as the deer park, orchid gardens, hibiscus garden, butterfly park and many more. As the name suggests, there is also a lake in the gardens (indeed, there are even two). This means that you'll not only enjoy different types of foliage, but also water life like nymphaea or waterbirds. Indeed, a good place to relax.

The Lake Gardens

The Lake Gardens are close to central KL and are a peaceful spot to escape the bustle of the city.

The gardens occupy 92 hectares. We went round on foot but this was tiring in the heat. There is also a shuttle for getting round. If you do walk, wear a sun hat, sun screen and bring plenty of water with you.

The gardens most famous site is the Bird Park. Open 9am to 7.30 pm. Adm Rm 28. There is also the Taman Rama Rama - the Butterfly Park. Open 9am to 6pm. Adm Rm 15.

We did not actually visit either of these sights. Instead we visited the Taman Orkid - the Orchid Garden. Open 9am - 6pm. Adm free. We also visited the Taman Bunga Raya - the Hibiscus Garden. Open 9am -6pm. Adm -free. Both were beautifully laid out and filled with colourful flowers.

The park also contains a lake where it is possible to hire boats, the National Monument which we visited on a previous trip and the Hotel Carcosa Seri Negara which was once the luxurious residence of British Government Representative, Frank Swettenham.

Lake Gardens a lake or ???

I was here a couple years ago doing some geocaching. During my walk through this lovely park, and I mean that sincerely, I saw one of the maintenance works going to the bathroom in a little stream that leads into the lake. He wasn't urinating so you do the math figure out what he was doing. Something tells me this isn't the first time he has done this and probably not the only one to do it.

If you plan on putting your hands in the water, please wash them before touching anything else.

Again, aside from what I saw a maintenance worker doing, this is a very nice park to come visit and walk around and take some pictures. There is plenty to see. And DON'T PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE WATER.

Titiwangsa Lake Gardens (Taman Tasik Titiwangsa)

Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens (Taman Tasik Perdana)

Kuala Lumpur has an impressive lot of parks and gardens. About 30 green spaces can be found within the city’s boundaries.

The biggest and most popular park are the Lake Gardens – in fact the city’s botanical garden - which covers 91.6 hectares. It is the city’s green lung and includes – as you can suspect when reading the name – more than one lake. Two. The bigger one of the two is the Tasek Perdana where you can hire a boat. You can also go jogging, and do other exercise.

The park is partly themed and includes an Orchid Garden with 800 species of orchids and hybrids (more info on:, the Hibiscus Gardens with more than 2000 varieties, and the Bird Park ( In the Orchid Garden was a shop where you could buy the plants.

The Bird Park is said to be the world’s largest freeflight aviary, with more than 3000 birds of about 200 species from all around the world. It was established in 1991. The nets are set so high above the ground that you really have the impression you are in the birds’ natural habitat.

Next to the Bird Park is the Butterfly Park with more than 6000 butterflies from about 120 exotic species. The garden has been landscaped to resemble the Malaysian rainforest.

Although I did not explore the entire 91.6 hectares I saw a lot of the park and can claim that I saw at least 400 of the 800 orchid species, and all the birds said hello to me ;-) And be assured, I sweated a lot. At the time I was there I sweated anywhere anyway – and in this park especially because it is not flat but also has up- and downhill areas. It was very efficient that “my” taxi driver accompanied me, so I did not get lost ;-)

Hours and admissions

Orchid and Hibiscus Gardens open daily 9am - 6prn
Admission free (except on Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays)

Bird Park open daily 9am – 6.30pm
Admission 3 RM

Butterfly Park open daily 9am – 6pm
Admission 5 RM

An important building on the lakeside is the Parliament Building, 76 metres high and brilliantly white, opened in 1962. Its most striking feature is an 18 storey tower.
