Formerly known as Coronation Park, the spectacular park is popular for family outings, picnics and sports activities. Some even come after the sun goes down to relax while enjoying the lush greenery surroundings.
Indulge in flowers and carps
The sweet smelling flowers, a couple of huge recreational fields, captivating lake and the picturesque landscaped Japanese Garden with a Carp pond are some of the key attractions that draw visitors to the park especially during the weekend and holidays. While children can have all the fun at the playground as a number of amusement facilities are available such as mini-train course and roller—skating rink, adults can also have a good time yourself – sitting by the lake and enjoy the cool breeze to de-stress your mind. To get to the park, just drive to Jalan Raja Musa Aziz, somewhere not far from Jalan Hospital.
