During our visit to Floria Fest 2009 in Putrajaya, we took the opportunity to explore the Putrajaya's Botanical Garden that is located in Precint 2 and had a brief stop at the Wetland too.
BangChik & KakDah, if you are reading this, I am truly envious of all the beautiful gardens you have at your suburb! It's so wonderful to be living in a suburb surrounded by greens.
The Botanical Garden that we visited is HUGE! The completed area that is opened to public covers an area of 63 acres!! Yup, it's not possible to walk around such huge area. However, one can opt to take the tram (unfortunately it was under repair during our visit) or hire bicycle for some adventurous discovery of the garden.
An Overview of the Botanical Garden
The 5 Features of the Botanical Garden
The Garden features 5 key areas:
- Explorer's Trail (comprises of Canopy Bridge, Heliconea Trail &Vine Garden)
- Palm Hill
- Sun Garden (comprises of Sun Garden, Orchid Path & Floral Step)
- Floral Gardens (comprises of African Collection, Tropical African Collection, Bougainvillea Tunnel, Asia Pacific Collection & Ficus Shades)
- Lakeside (comprises of Hibiscus WalkPandanus Walk, Canna Walk & Fern Garden)
We will definitely return to the Botanical Garden to cover the other areas that we have not ventured. Another garden that I am very keen to check out is the Shah Alam Agricultural Park. Heard from fellow photography enthusiasts in our community's forum, USJ.com, that this park features many photography opportunities.
Come, let's visit our local parks!!
