Located in the centre of Johor Bahru, nice place to jog in the morning and afternoon. On weekend there is group exercise near the stage. At night during weekend there is a musical fountain show at the lake

As with most of the things in Malaysia, at first nice and after that it becomes worse. No maintenance at all. Many things are damaged since several month, but who cares? Nobody! Boring place and a waste of time to go there.

Nice children's playground opposite the museum Islam and UMNO museum. Take a break from sightseeing for the children to play. More suitable for younger children. Too few benches for adults to sit down though.
