It’s a new place to visit as it was develop from existing park into total new landscape. As I never visit this place before, I found it’s total a new place for me to explore. I manage to explore entire of the park due even though it’s raining during my visit.
Carpark is FREE. One can do a picnic in a dedicated area.
A welcome landscape of waterfall at the entrance.
Need to walk about 1km before reaching first destination.
In fact, the botanical garden have few sections, one of it is Pre Historic Garden. This park is created to replicate the pre historic dinosaurs in 70 million years ago. About 15 types of stone replica can been seen in this nature landscape.
Me with Stegosaurus replica.
Lily with dinosaur eggs.
Then comes with local story park (Taman Cerita). One of the most popular story tales is Rabbit and Tortoise racing.
The crow and the pot. The intelligence of the crow enable him to drink the water from the pot by putting stones into pot.
The entire place is not that big nor small. However, it’s enough for exercising and make you feel hot. The good thing is all the interesting place is very easy to find with a helpful signboard.
Hanging bridge (Jambatan Gantung).
Kampung Buku Malaysia.
Muzium Perhutanan Melaka.
Even though people come to jog and camp at this place, however, it’s truly suitable for tourist and hobbyist like me. A trekking route together with forest tree (some remain untouched) is really unique. On side by side, there are many flowers planted included orchids.
I never regret to come to this place. I’ll be here again as I believe it has more to offer in the coming development. It has changed and suit the name of Botanical Garden of Melaka. It’s worth to pay a visit.
