Taiping Lake Gardens
The oldest lake gardens in the country, this park sprawls over 62
hectares at the foot of the hill resort of Bukit Larut. Magnificently
sculptured out of the natural environment, these picture-postcard
gardens present a serene and panoramic landscape with their lush
greenery, lovely lakes and a profusion of colorful flowers and plants.
The unforgettable sight here is the huge, ancient angsana trees
with their drooping branches that seem to defy the law of gravity.
The Taiping Zoo, probably the oldest zoo in the country, is another
attraction located within the Gardens. Visiting hours 8.30 am to
6.30 pm daily.
Fares are RM3.00 for adults, RM1.50 for children, primary student
with uniform RM0.50 and secondary student with uniform RM1.00.
Other facilities available at the Gardens include a rest house,
fishing and aquabiking in the area.
