As with most of the things in Malaysia, at first nice and after that it becomes worse. No maintenance at all. Many things are damaged since several month, but who cares? Nobody! Boring place and a waste of time to go there.

A nice park with good ambience. However bring mosquito repellent just in case! :) Suitable for jogging as many people go there to jog.
