From National Science Center, our next stop was Lake Gardens or Taman Tasik Perdana or Botanical Garden. Just say wahetever the name is to the taxi driver, they know exactly where to take you. The easiest way to get here is by taxi (only RM8 from Bukit Bintang). Taxi is cheap, that was why we loved taking taxi everywhere.
This is a huge park with jogging track, playgrounds, bird park, restaurants, lake, and other things which I do not know for sure because our main reason to visit this place was because of it’s: PLAYGROUND. I said that KLCC playground is very big…..but this one is even bigger. It has two themes playground: Dinosaur Park and Fantasy Island. We found everything that could make a child happy in here, from the slides, swings, bridges, castles, grass field, and even ice cream seller. Well, anyway it’s a super duper big playground and lil boy (once again) couldn’t believe his eyes with all the excitements ahead. So, as soon as he saw this playground, he run and screamed: “PLAYGROUND!”. Who said he was tired and hungry just few minutes before?
So, while I accompanied him running here and there (I was tired and the weather was very hot too), daddy tried his luck finding a restaurant nearby because we were so hungry………he finally found one quite far away from the playground. Aha….that was why everybody brought their own food and had their own picnic………..because as far as I could see there was nothing than the ice cream seller.
Well, actually, just before we wanted to go home, we found this sign “Food Stalls to the right” near the playground. But when we tried to look to the right (literally, because we had no intention of walking again), there was nothing, it probably needed another long walk to get there.
The playground itself is located near jalan Kebun Bunga. There is a map near the entrance door, so just look carefully at the map to locate the playground.
And here is how we spent our day in Lake Gardens Playground:
