Details

Sprawled over 43 hectares, the Shah Alam Lake Gardens, designed by renowned landscape architect Fumiaki Takano, was the first public park to open in Selangor in 1985.

The lake gardens are managed by Shah Alam’s city council (MBSA), who have done well to ensure that the park maintains its popularity among locals and tourists alike.

Though smaller than its neighbour, Taman Botani Negara (National Botanical Gardens), the lake gardens have plenty to offer.

Things to do

Taman Tasik Shah Alam is a massive parkland equipped with gazebos, a lakeside promenade, raised walkways that extend over the water, reflexology paths, jogging and cycling trails, event halls and childrens’ playgrounds.

Visitors may rent paddle boats and kayaks at ±RM10/hour to explore the interconnected lakes. Fishing competitions are regularly held, as are Majlis Pelepasan Ikan (fish releases).

Several species of animals including peacocks, geese, storks and forest chickens are also reared here, so remember to be on the lookout for them.
