Taiping Lake Garden

Enjoy or sucks...? Please comment on this... Thanks.

Today is a special day where thousands of voices around the world talk about one issue, its all about environment. Though I am not good in discussing environment care, but I would like to take a very small part in it, just wanna feel a little great where everyone is doing the same thing in one day. Not very much related to environment care, but this is to illustrate how our greeny natural world contributes to us. Its peaceful, it’s the Taiping Lake Garden.
Taiping Lake Garden was developed since 1880, as what I read from other related websites. This lake garden is said to be the oldest park in the country, and is one of the first for Taiping Town. I am so proud to be born in Taiping. Haha. For me, Taiping Lake Garden is a lost and found. Because it’s once a tin mine and was then converted into lush green garden like what we can enjoy now. So great! Token of appreciation to people involved in develop of the Taiping Lake Garden.

Taiping Lake Garden is not far from the town, maybe about 5 to 10 minutes. It’s also close to the foot of Maxwell Hill (famous hill in Taiping).This scenic garden is filled up with flowers, trees (especially rain tree), and shrubs which in turn form a warm habitat for animals. You can see birds flying around, fishes enjoying their life in the lake, and many more.

It's all about nature, silence, peaceful...

Your total leisure life can be found right here...

Some attractions in the garden are boat recreations, Japanese Garden, Pagoda Bridge, roller skating rink, lotus pool, clock tower, fountain, manmade rock formation or known as Dinosaur Park, children playground, and senior rain tree. (roller skating rink is where crowd gathered during the mooncake fetival, take a look how it looks like, click here.)

path between the lake
Jogging and Pak Tor are both welcome on this little path...

Besides, the first zoo in the country is also located in this beautiful garden. It’s another attraction from local and foreign visitors where 130 species of animal totaling around 1300 individual stay here. After wandering to their website then I know, they actually give away 50% for every entrance in the whole month of March. So, whoever wanted to visit the zoo Taiping might have to plan for it in March. The Night Safari should be great too, but some of them (animal) might have gone to bed during night time.

the lotus

And as a conclusion of this, I would say that Taiping is a town of everlasting peace with a close to nature Lake Garden. If you have not experience this, you should consider a short break from the full of petrol fumes, rush life and stressful city, and have a visit to Taiping Lake Garden. I personally guaranteed that whoever visited the garden will fall in love with it. Very TRUE.

你亲身体验过了吗?

殷缘
那里的环境真的很棒
你很适合去那里解压
那些照片都不是我拍的
我哪有时间去拍
而且自己也没有那么好的技术吧
它们都是借回来的
这是不能说的秘密
