Titiwangsa Park is a large recreational park located within Kuala Lumpur’s Titiwangsa Lake Gardens.
Taman Tasik Titiwangsa,
53200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The Titiwangsa Lake Gardens were designed in 1980 by Rio Takahashi, a Japanese landscape architect, to ease congestion at the Perdana Botanical Garden in downtown Kuala Lumpur.
Occupying over 95 hectares, the main attraction here is a picturesque lake left over from tin-mining activity during the British colonial era. Another smaller, man-made lake completes the park’s beautiful surroundings.
Activities/Things to do
Apart from large areas of parkland, there is a lakeside promenade for gatherings, performances and other social activities, as well as a floating restaurant (Restoran D’Saji – formerly Restoran Nelayan) that can accommodate ~1,700 guests at any one time.
Fishing & Boating
The park’s 57-hectare lake makes it one of the best places to go fishing and enjoy recreational boating in KL. Life jackets are provided at the boathouse, where visitors may also rent kayaks, paddle boats, Sea Riders, Tubesters and Waterballs to explore the area.
For a small fee (~RM1.50 for adults and ~RM0.50 for children), a trainer will walk round the stables with the horse and rider.
There’s also a quick tour around the park on a horse-drawn carriage, which is available for groups of four to five people at ~RM2.00 per person and ~RM0.50 per child.
Radio-controlled Car Racing
Races are held every weekend at a purpose-built facility that includes drivers’ platforms and seating for spectators. Competitions and special events such as miniature F1 races are regular features.
