Known as the 'green lung' of Kuala Lumpur, it is located in the heart of a metropolitan city lined with tall buildings. As the oldest forest on the peninsular, you can see many different flora and fauna here, as far as the city. It was gazetted as a permanent forest reserve in 1906 and at that time it had an area of 17.5 hectares. Urban development, including construction of the KL Tower in the 1990?s, has nibbled away at the reserve over the years and now only 9 hectares remains.
Visitors can find a variety of trees, herbs, bamboo, and creepers, as well as well-maintained walking trails ranging between 300 and 500 metres in length. All trails in KL Forest Eco Park are fairly suitable for beginners and children, plus there are also several facilities within the area, including a playground, campsite, and a wooden gazebo overlooking the Menara KL Tower. You can plan with your family here if there is nothing to do during the weekend.
There are 3 main entrances to the park:
