Taman Tasik Perdana- Lake Garden Taman Botani KL Overview and Features
Welome to Taman Tasik Perdana – Lake Gardens Kuala Lumpur
The Perdana Botanical Garden, formerly known as Taman Tasik Perdana or Lake Gardens, is situated in the Heritage Park of Kuala Lumpur. It has always been a part of the green lung of the city and has a history of over a decade. Originally created as part of a recreational park but planted with collections of tropical plants, the garden have been rehabilitated and turned into a Botanical Garden.
The Taman Tasik Perdana Lake Garden have not only botanical collections but also house features that give the visitors the ambiance of being in a tropical rainforest, despite being in the middle of a bustling metropolis.
30 Best Features in Taman Tasik Perdana / KL Botanical Gardens
The best features here in Taman Tasik Perdana – Lake Gardens KL are as follows:-
Forest Tree Collection
Although there are forest trees dotted in all areas of the botanical gardens, and we consider these as the Heritage Trees, the collection of forest trees have been added in and grouped in one area.
They are mainly trees which are of economic importance and those that we are familiar with. It is only a sampling as the tropical rainforest have an enormous number of species.
The order Zingiberales consisting of Gingers, species of Costus and Musa has been planted along the slopes adjacent to Jalan Tembusu leading to another member in the order, the heliconias, in the Heliconia Garden. They are planted amongst other foliage plants such as the calatheas, dracaenas and aroids.
Heliconias, with their exotic and showy inflorescence and large leaves typifies the tropical garden. The collection in the Heliconia Garden showcase species and hybrids that are favourites. The fishpond in the garden with a small picture perfect waterfall makes a cool place to relax.
Exotic Species Collection
- Heritage Trees
- Brazil Nut Tree (Bertholletia excelsa)
- Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans)
- Mahogany (Swietenia-macrophylla)
Malaysia is a Tropical Rainforest and to find trees that are over 300 years old is not difficult. One has only to step into the National Park or Taman Negara, or just the forest reserves outside the city, to see a giant jungle species that forms the beautiful crown of our rainforest. However, it is rare to find such a tree in the city, with development eliminating all that grows, making way for highways and high-rise buildings. The trees planted in the Lake Gardens more than a hundred years ago might not be as old as some in the forest but they are considered as our heritage trees, as they not only surpass our age but also implicate our history.
Brazil Nut Tree (Bertholletia excelsa)
The lone tree that stands tall and majestic on the gentle slopes leading to the Tun Razak Memorial steps came from the Amazon jungle.
Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans)
Tembusu trees can be found lining Jalan Tembusu and also dotting the open areas of the garden.
Mahogany trees lining Jalan Tembusu, opposite the Tembusu Trees.
Lesser Fruit Tree Collection
Lesser Fruit Tree CollectionLesser Fruit Tree Collection: The gardens should be a place of reference for plants that have been forgotten as they are no longer planted for various reasons. Herbs are coming back in a big way and the gardens’ collections on herbs will be in the herb garden. Trees however would need to be brought back in the main gardens. The trees that were sourced included the following:
- Aleurites moluccana, Buah Keras
- Anacardium occidentale, Buah Gajus, or Cashew Nut
- Barringtonia racemosa, Putat Kampong
- Baccaurea parvif lora, Wild Rambai
- Buchanania arborescens, Sparrows Mango
- Canarium littorale, Kedondong Bulan
- Dialium indum, Keranji
- Diospyros blancoi, Buah Mentega, Butterfruit
- Myristica fragrans, Nutmeg, Buah Pala
- Sandoricum koetjape, Sentul
- Tamarindus indica, Asam Jawa or Tamarind
In the middle of the main gardens, where the three main roads coming from the three entrances meet, there is a square where events and activities were carried out. It is a central area and located close to the boathouse and with ample space, it is a perfect area for gatherings.This is the Laman Perdana.
The rehabilitation efforts have transformed the square into an area for majestic trees. Adansonias and Moringas, planted as mature trees gave quite a surreal feel to the area. One can imagine being transpor ted to the land in Africa where they came from.
The lake has a small Island in the larger water body and it has two clumps of bamboos growing on it giving a most scenic look to the lake. The other island, which serves as a short cut to the area across the lake has two concrete bridges crossing the narrow water bodies around it.
A cycad collection have been star ted on this Island giving it a new name, “The Cycad Island”. The collection of species of cycads and succulents, although starting small will continue to be expanded with more local and imported species.
Sunken Garden The parterre garden in the Lake Gardens is a fairly new addition. The site taken was once a children’s playground bordered behind by a row of Juniperus chinensis. Now the circular garden is growing in a sunken area surrounded by pergolas, which support the climber Bauhinia kockiana. This hardy climber is also a scrambler, tamed from the jungle to be grown in home gardens. It is free flowering and the orange flowers brighten up the gardens just as it gives the jungle its burst of colour.
The parterre consists of low shrubs of Acalypha siamensis, Loropetalum chinense and Zephyranthes.
In the centre of the circular garden is a star-shaped fountain, and dotted around this garden are white Grecian containers carrying flowering annuals.
Name of Places Tree Collection
Name of Places Tree Collection Many trees lent their names to States and places in Malaysia. We sometimes forget or do not know the origin of the names of the places we are living in or visiting. The following trees will enlighten visitors when they visit this group of tree collections.
Phyllanthus pectinatus; Melaka tree giving its name to the state of Melaka.
Lepisanthes alata; the Johor state is of the same name as this Johor tree.
Lagerstroemia floribunda, or Kedah Bungor; although in this case the tree might have adopted the state’s name.
Sandoricum koetjape, or Sentul must have given the name to the area in Kuala Lumpur call Sentul.
Suregada multiflora, Merlimau, or fake lime, gives its name to a small town in Melaka.
Herb & Spice Garden
Herb & Spice Garden – The Herb & Spice Garden Garden in the Lake Gardens must have been part of the gardens within the Conservatory and nursery area, as it was here that a glass house was originally situated.
Despite the screening that kept it quite hidden from the public eye, it has quite a prominent entrance and one would not miss the signage, walking along the road. Entering the garden one would be greeted by the sight of a large pergola heaped up with the creeper Kesidang (Vallaris glabra).
Flanking this central pergola are smaller pergolas covered with the beautiful creeper, Beaumontia grandiflora. When in flower, the large white blooms, in clusters are really impressive. One might wonder what herbal use these ornamental creepers have but I believe they are there to provide the aesthetic quality to the garden, which otherwise would be mainly green.
Brownea Street – The Brownea street is named after the rows of Brownea trees planted along the newly upgraded pathway. Upgrading & beautification work were carried out around Brownea Street. Not only the soft landscape and collections of flora be enhanced but the hardscape too are upgraded, as can be seen from the work done on pavements and rest areas.
The KL Deer Park is a 2 hectare enclosure, housing the Fallow deer from Holland, also know as Dama dama deer or Rusa Holland. The KL Deer Park is located near the Tun Abdul Razak Memorial and the Orchid Garden.
Hibiscus Garden – The Hibiscus Garden showcases the various species of Malaysia’s national flower, the Bunga Raya (Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis). Some of the attractions in the garden include a 4-metre high waterfall, pools and fountains. A lovely colonial style building has been converted into an exhibition hall with a tearoom and a gallery.
The Orchid Garden houses up to 120 genera species of orchids 5000 hybrid. The garden comprises a semi circle pergola for the climbing and epiphytic variety and a rock garden for the terrestrial variety.
Herbarium is a collection of dried plants that are stored in the cabinet and curated for such a long-term study like a library of plant diversity and is accessible to the public. Herbarium Perdana Botanical Garden Kuala Lumpur was officiated and fully opened to the public on March 3, 2017 by Senior Deputy Director of Landscape & Recreation Department of the City Hall of Kuala Lumpur, Mrs. Puteri Khairul Fathiah bt. Fahimudin.
Herbarium Perdana Botanical Garden KL keeps the collections of flowering and fruiting plants from Perdana Botanical Garden and forest areas in Peninsular Malaysia. All taxonomy data collection was recorded in the database BRAHMS (Botanical Research and Herbarium Management System). Herbarium Perdana Botanical Garden is open to the public for studies of the plants from Monday to Friday every week between 8.00 am to 4.30 pm. Applications can be sent to: email@example.com.
Lake Gardens Taman Tasik Perdana Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park
Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens Taman Tasik Perdana Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park
Located in the heart of the city, Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens o or formerly knows as Taman Tasik Perdana or newly name KL Botanical Gardens contain many of Malaysia’s most popular tourist attractions including KL Bird Park (the world’s largest walk in aviary), a butterfly park, a deer park, orchid and hibiscus gardens and some top museums.
There is so much to see you will want to visit again and again. However if you are short of time you can use this guide and map to help you cover the main highlights of the park in one day.
Kuala Lumpur has always been a green town whose streets are lined with banyans and raintrees and patches of thick jungle intersperse with developed areas. But in recent years, due to rapid urbanisation, the green areas have somewhat diminished which adds to the importance of retaining ‘green lungs’ like Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens.
The Lake Gardens are known by many name including Taman Tasik Perdana and Perdana Lake Gardens, but in July 2011 the park was renamed Taman Botani Perdana as part of an ambitious plan to transform the 123 year old lake gardens into a world class botanical garden covering over 100 hectares. Together with the surrounding attractions the whole area is known officially as Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park.
National Monument, Kuala Lumpur
Taman Tasik Perdana Lake Gardens KL Trail begins at the National Monument, an imposing bronze statue on a low hill facing the Lake Gardens. This monument was designed by an American sculptor, Felix de Weldon, and completed in 1966. It commemorates the warriors who died defending the sovereignty of Malaysia.
In the same vicinity is a Cenotaph listing the names of (mostly British) servicemen from the Federated Malay States who were killed during World War One (1914-1918), with later additions to cover WWII (1939-1945) and the Malayan Emergency (1948-1960).
There is a small restaurant nearby Taman Tasik Perdana, a Tugu View Cafe, with a terrace overlooking the Monument where you can take refreshment.
At the foot of the National Monument is the Asean Sculpture Garden which is worth a quick look. It contains six sculptures of stainless steel, glass, marble and bamboo made by artists from Asean nations in the days when Asean was made up of only 6 countries.
Next, after taking care while crossing the busy Jalan Parlimen, enter into the Lake Gardens park, signposted Taman Botani Perdana. Here you should visit the Malaysia Cartoon & Comic House to see some original cartoon artwork. From here take one of the footpaths leading down to the main botanical garden area next to the lakes. You will pass a large amphitheatre (Panggung Anniversari) where shows and cultural events are staged periodically.

Deer Park, Kuala Lumpur Taman Tasik Perdana
Be sure not to miss the Mouse-deer and Deer Park (Taman Rusa dan Kancil). The mousedeer are cute little things but very shy and you will be lucky to get a good photo. The larger more common deer on the other hand are less camera-shy. You can sometimes buy food for the deer at the entrance to the deer park if anyone is on duty.
Next I suggest a visit to the Orchid & Hibiscus Gardens. This is a park-within-a-park with its own entrance. There is a nominal admission charge at weekends but it is free on weekdays. There are hundreds of specimens of orchid and hibiscus to enjoy here. The hibiscus (or bunga raya) is the national flower of Malaysia.
KL Bird Park @ Taman Tasik Perdana
Across the street is the excellent KL Bird Park. It claims to be the world’s largest free flight aviary and it is one of Malaysia’s most popular tourist spots. This is reflected in the entrance charge which, by Malaysian standards, is fairly expensive, although still good value compared to other countries.
KL Butterfly Park @ Taman Tasik Perdana
While you are here you can take the opportunity to have lunch on the terrace of the Hornbill Restaurant.
Also nearby is the Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park where you can see thousands of butterflies flying freely in lush tropical surroundings enclosed under a giant net. An entrance fee is charged.
Further along Jalan Perdana can be found the Tun Abdul Razak Memorial, the former official residence of the late Tun Abdul Razak, the second Prime Minister of Malaysia, and now a museum which houses an interesting collection of memorabilia, gifts and personal possessions. The bedroom and study of the former Prime Minister have been preserved with their original furnishings and interior design students will be fascinated to see how tastes have changed since the 1970s.
Tun Abdul Razak was a popular Prime Minister and was known as the Father of Development.
Felda Settlement House @ Taman Tasik Perdana
Round the back of the memorial you take a quick look at the Felda Settlement House or Rumah Felda. The Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) provided modest pre-fabricated homes of this sort to low income families under their settlement scheme.
Originally there would have been only one water pipe for every 6 families but nowadays each home has its own water supply.
Still have energy left at Taman Tasik Perdana? If so take a look inside the nearby Police Museum and the splendid Islamic Arts Museum. Also in the vicinity are the National Planetarium and, a little further away, the National Museum. This completes our Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens Trail.
From here (Botanical Gardens KL) you could either get a taxi or walk across to KL Sentral for your train, monorail or bus connections.

Assalamualaikum Hai gais!
Kali ni sis nak bawa korang joging kat lokasi yang cantik kat tengah KL ni! Sebenarnya ni training sebelum sis pergi ke Xueshan haritu. Sekarang baru nak update kat blog! hahaa.
Taman Tasik Perdana atau Lake Gardens ni terletak di Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Tasik ini terletak di sebelah kiri Jalan Mahameru menuju ke bangunan Parlimen Malaysia. Nama Tasik Perdana dipilih kerana berhampiran dengan kediaman bekas Perdana Menteri Malaysia ke-2, Allahyarham Tun Abdul Razak.
Kini ia lebih dikenali sebagai ‘Taman Botani Perdana’ iaitu sebuah taman awam yang besar di Kuala Lumpur. Taman Botani Perdana merangkumi kawasan 226 ekar (91.6 hektar). Ia diurus oleh Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur, dan merupakan sebahagian daripada Taman Warisan Tun Abdul Razak. Terjumpa arnab kat celah-celah bunga ni! Wallaweh! Main sorok-sorok ye! OMG too cute too handle bunny! Gemok & Gebu gebas! hahaa. Aduhhh comel sangat la rabbit nih! Rasa nak culik bela kat umah!
Baik nau senyap je dia tak de nak menggelupur macam aku peluk kucing! hahaa..Tapi sis seram tengok kuku dia tu tajam betul! Kalau kena cakar ni mati aku! hahaa. Ok la babai rabbit, sis nak pergi jogging ni! Bulu-bulu rabbit pun habis melekat & bertebaran kat baju aku! hahaa.
Taman Tasik Perdana Kuala Lumpur mula-mula diasaskan pada tahun 1888. Ia hasil cadangan The Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens date back to 1888, apabila Bendahari Negeri Selangor, Alfred Venning, yang mencadangkan sebuah taman botani diasaskan di kawasan tadahan Sungai Bras Bras.
Cadangan ini telah mendapat sokongan dari Residen British Frank Swettenham, dan peruntukan pun dialihkan untuk tujuan ini. Tujuan taman cadangan Venning adalah serupa dengan pembentukan Taman Botani Singapura dan Taman Botani Pulau Pinang, iaitu sebuah taman rekreasi yang juga dapat memainkan peranan untuk menyelidiki tumbuhan tropika untuk potensi ekonomi. Begitulah serba sedikit mengenai sejarah Taman Tasik Perdana KL ini yang sekarang ini dikenali sebagai Taman Botani Perdana KL.
Pada 13hb Mei, 1889, taman yang dicadangkan ini pun dibuka. Pada mulanya, ia dipanggil Public Gardens (Taman Awam) sebelum ditukar namanya kepada Lake Gardens (Taman Tasik). Pembukaan taman ini telah dirasmikan oleh Gabenor Negeri-Negeri Selat, Sir Cecil Clementi Smith.
Pada masa itu, kediaman rasmi Residen British juga berada di dalam taman ini. Bangunan itu hari ini dikenali sebagai Carcosa Seri Negara. Setahun setelah taman ini diasaskan, Venning telah menubuhkan sebuah kelab sosial bernama Lake Club, dan menempatkannya dalam taman ini. Pada masa itu, Lake Club hanya dibuka kepada Orang Eropah sahaja.
Tasik ini merupakan sebuah bekas lombong bijih timah pada zaman penjajahan British. Ketika itu lombong ini diusahakan pelombong bijih timah menggunakan lombong palung. Setelah jumlah bijih timah berkurangan, lombong ini tinggal terbiar dan dimajukan sebagai sebuah tasik rekreasi.
Canopy at the Main Square
Cantik kan ruang legar berbumbung ni! Sangat unik design dia! Barai jugak weh 2 round lari! hahaaa Testing Huawei P20 Pro mate portrait mode. u jump, i jump!
Panorama Taman Tasik Perdana
Di dalam Taman Botani Perdana Kuala Lumpur juga ada Taman Rusa dan ia adalah PERCUMA. Kawasan sekitarnya dijaga dengan rapi dengan menanam pelbagai spesis pokok hiasan. Trek joging, kerusi rehat, Panggung Anniversari, gelanggang permainan dan lain-lain ada disediakan di sini.
Setengah hari pun mungkin tak cukup untuk menghabiskan masa di sini kerana selain kawasannya yang luas, anda mungkin mahu bersantai lebih lama kerana suasananya yang damai dan jauh dari hiruk pikuk kota.
Tu ha rusa tengah bersantai! Ada rumah kartun kat sini & juga kedai souvenier.
In a nutshell, kalau anda ingin menikmati keindahan alam bersama rakan-rakan atau keluarga, atau ingin melakukan aktiviti sukan riadah, datanglah ke sini!
