Watch how latex is collected, congulated and rolled into rubber sheets. Taman Warisan Pertanian is truly an interesting spot to understand the countries agricultural heritage.
Sprawling over 35 acres, Agriculture Heritage Park or Taman Warisan Pertanian gives an insight into Malaysias agricultural heritage and development. Learn all about the countries leading crops; such as rubber, cocoa and oil palm. Various gardens, trails and plantation plots offer the chance for visitors to have a closer look at the plants and learn about their uses. As you enter the park you will find an information counter and park map at the top of the stairs. You will see a covered space called Agriculture Square or Medan Tani where they hold exhibitions, shows or markets from time to time. Here too are gift shops, snack shop, mini store, a florist, clothing store and so on.
This opens out onto a food court area with a number of eating choices including a Live Kitchen (Penanggah), a branch of the famous sat? stall, Sate Kajang Hj. Samuri, and various kuey teow, noodle, roti and other Malaysian-style fast food stalls. Many local Putrajaya residents regularly visit Taman Warisan just for the food. From here take some more steps (wheelchair ramp is available) to the ticket booth selling entrance tickets to the main part of the park. You can either walk round the park yourself, hire a guide or take a buggy ride if you don't like the look of the hilly pathways.
Taman Warisan Pertanian is divided up into various sections comprising tropical fruit trees(these are the park's main attraction), herbs and spices, commercial crops, palms and a rubber tree grove. There are many fruit species growing here including jackfruit, rambutan, sapodilla, jambu madu, cempedak, longan, durian, pomelo, mango, mangosteen, pulasan, dragon fruit, star fruit and guava. On the last weekend of every month an Agro Bazaar is held in the car park area. There are usually a couple of dozen stalls selling fruit, pot plants, organic fertilizers, pet rabbits and sundry items.
