Taman Tasik Perdana, better known as the Lake Gardens, is the oldest and most popular park in Kuala Lumpur. It lies just on the edge of the city and used to be where the British elite built their fine homes in the colonial times, away from the hurly burly of downtown commerce and people of other races.

The official residence of British government representative Frank Swettenham is now the Carosa Seri Negara, Malaysia’s most expensive hotel.

Today, its landscaped hills and beautiful trails provide an escape for city dwellers out for a jog or some early morning t’ai chi. Its main attraction is the Tasik Perdana (Premier Lake) surrounded by lush greenery in a 92ha. (227 acres) parkland that provides a refreshing ambience. You can rent boats on weekends.
