KLCC Park – Best recreational park in Kuala Lumpur

Sharing is caring!

It was Sunday morning yesterday and decided to take a stroll at KLCC PARK.

KLCC Park is an ideal place for a morning jog or work out. It has a paved track of about 1.3km and many shorter interconnecting walkways.

It is also the place for the KL folks looking for a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city life.

Lake Symphony of KLCC Park

The attention grabber of KLCC Park is Lake Symphony at the esplanade outside of Suria KLCC. It is a man-made lake with a central fountain that can shoot up to 42 meters. Besides, many smaller fountains create various patterns in synchronization throughout the day.

There is an hourly musical fountain show at night. So I will return at night for the show.

Awesome musical fountain

The esplanade comes to life with the musical fountain performance every night at 8 pm, 9 pm, and 10 pm. Each performance will last for about ten minutes depends on the song they perform.

The fountain will form different programmed animation patterns and colorful lighting following the rhythm and melody to display a magical performance of music and water.

KLCC PARK – The best spot to view the Twin Towers.

If you want to find the best spot to take a picture of the Petronas Twins Towers, go to KLCC Park. There is a bridge cut across the undulating slopes behind the lake, which offers the vantage view of the Petronas Twin Towers.

This first photo below was taken in the middle of the bridge in the morning. The second photo was taken at the same spot at night.

Wading pool and playground at KLCC Park – (It is free) 

There is a wading pool for children, with a cascading waterfall flowing down at the back.

Besides the pool, there is an open and ample playground for children.

It is a haven for weakened family outings will children.

A gateway to Petronas Twin Towers and KLCC Suria 

KLCC PARK is the gateway to visit Petronas Twin Towers and KLCC Suria.

You can have your morning tea or picnic facing the greenfield or water fountain before your shopping spree and visiting the Aquaria, Petrosains, and other KL attractions.

There are many gazebos scattered at different locations, which are the ideal place to have a picnic or tidbits and enjoy the bright sunshine and the beautiful scenery.

KLCC Park – An Oasis in a Concrete Jungle

KLCC Park is an urban garden with over 1900 trees from 74 species. More than half were transplanted from the former Selangor Turf Club. The plants are carefully selected to attract different birds to the park. 

There are signboards about the species and characteristics in front of most of the trees.

Note: If you like nature and hiking, check out Gasing Hill Forest Reserve that is located at the border of Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.

Security and maintenance

The park is well maintained, and there is a small police station next to the lake. Workers were cleaning and sweeping during twice of my visits. 

The park is spotlessly clean and feels safe to walk around. This standard is in contrast to some of the other parks that I have experienced in Kuala Lumpur.
