Bukit Jalil Park

Bukit Jalil Park

Bukit Jalil Park (Taman Rekreasi Bukit Jalil) is a popular recreational park in the southern suburbs of Kuala Lumpur, about 20km from the city centre.

It is managed by Kuala Lumpur City Hall.

Activities and facilities here include picnicking, a children's playground, jogging and walking trails, exercise stations, a reflexology path, a heliconia garden, lakes, a dedicated area for people with disabilities and an international garden.

The park covers an 80 acre site on gently sloping terrain. There are a few steeper slopes with steps for those seeking more vigorous exercise.

Some of the hard landscaping and facilities in Taman Bukit Jalil are in need of maintenance and 'TLC' but it would not require a great deal of effort or investment to restore the park to tip-top condition.

The Bukit Jalil district of KL is undergoing significant development, including a major project immediately adjacent to the park. As KL's population grows and green spaces disappear it is important that parks such as this are maintained and improved.

Green lungs such as this park will be increasingly important as KL grows.
