Description: The serene ambience of the park provides an ideal ambience for a peaceful nature walk. Near the entrance of the park, at the foot of a high cliff wall, is a picturesque pond. The pond runs deep and still - a relic from the mining days of the region.
This park was developed on an abandoned quarry site in 1988. The terrain is undulating and footpaths meander through the lush secondary forest leading to look-out points reaching more than 10 storeys high to provide breathtaking views.
Joggers and hikers will welcome the undulating terrain and the serene ambience of the park.
During World War II, the Japanese selected the Lorong Sesuai site as a memorial for the soldiers who died. All that remains are two pillars and 120 concrete steps leading up to a transmission tower. A memorial plaque lies at the foot of the stairs to inform visitors of the significance and meaning of the location.
