Gunung Lang Recreational Park.. Huh? Where? Not many people are aware of this gem in Ipoh, though it's been around for ages.. It only recently officially opened its door to public with boating service starting from April of 2004.
The Gunung Lang recreation park, off Jalan Kuala Kangsar, is an ideal location to relax the mind and the body. It is built around a scenic backdrop of limestone hills and lakes. Here, there is minimal cutting of hills and the surrounding lakes and wetlands are left untouched as added attractions. Among the attractions here are the manmade cascading waterfalls atop a limestone hill, a two-kilometre boardwalk over swampland, viewing tower and a playground. Public amenities like washrooms and prayer rooms are available. Soon, there will be an aviary and a flower garden along the lines of the celebrated Buchart Garden in Vancouver, Canada, camping ground, hanging bridge and handicraft stalls. Besides Gunung Lang, other well known recreational sites in Ipoh are Taman D.R. and Sultan Abdul Aziz parks.

Roll out the yellow carpet... a well manicured lawn, neatly trimmed hedges.. kudos to the gardener..
Curious structure designs which offer shade while maintaining the lighting..
Boats start their service(the only way to the park) from 8 am to about 6:30pm daily.. It's just a short 5 minute boat ride across the 'lake'. Start chatting with the boatmen and they will tell you some stories and facts about the park.
That's the pier in the background
