Scenic Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens

This century old public park is currently undergoing major upgrading works by the Kuala Lumpur city Hall (DBKL). Some proposed new features include a park for the visually impaired and man-made waterfalls. The public and NGOs are welcome to send in their suggestions and ideas.

Phase 1 of the upgrading works has already started 5 months ago and this is estimated to cost RM 11 mil. The entire project has 3 phases spread over a 5 year period and will cost about RM 35mil. The KL Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail hopes to complete the project in 2 years.
  • A total of 1,500 trees of has already been planted.
  • Monetary donations are pouring in from the private sector
  • The trees planted include Cannonball, Bottle Tree, Baobab, Black Bamboo, Moringa, Cycus and also a 100 year old Plumeria tree donated by an anonymous benefactor.
  • Trees infested with termites and parasites are being rehabilitated.
  • DBKL is looking for suitable plants and trees for the visually impaired park, and this would include those that could be touched and felt.
  • Phase 2 will benefit children with special playground featuring Lat The Kampong Boy series, a cafe, a tree house and a boathouse
  • Phase 3 include upgrading the car park facilities, walkways and landscaping. After this, cars will no longer be allowed into the park. Visitors are required to park at the entrance.
Anyone with suggestions, ideas or wish to donate trees can email jstkpb@dbkl.com.my and datuk-bandar@dbkl.gov.my.
