Old Photo of Lake Gardens

A.R. VenningThe Perdana Botanical Garden is strategically located in the City of Kuala Lumpur. Formally the Lake Gardens, built in 1888 by A.R.Venning, the state treasurer of Selangor then. In 1975, the late Tun Hj. Abdul Razak, the second Prime Minister of Malaysia officially launched the new image of the Lake Gardens, renaming it the Taman Tasik Perdana, or the Perdana Lake Gardens. Being a public park, the main activities were concentrated on the jogging paths and exercise facilities along the way. On occasions such as this launch in 1975, fishing competitions were held. Concerts were also held at the amphitheatre, the Panggung Anniversary.

Tun Abdul Razak launching of Perdana Lake Gardens

On 28th June 2011, the Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib bin Tun Hj. Abdul Razak launched Perdana Botanical Garden. This marked the completion of the first phase of the process of turning the Public Park into a Botanical Garden.

The first Phase involved the rehabilitation of the main core of the Garden and the addition of various collections and features. The garden is unique in that it has the elements of a show garden, the ambiance of a tropical rainforest, and the serenity of a getaway place despite being in the middle of a metropolis.

The second phase of the transformation will bring in the necessary elements of a Botanical Garden that is the Herbarium, the Library and Visitor Center. Other areas such as the Orchid Garden and the Hibiscus Garden will be enhanced and rehabilitated as well. The progress will be updated in our News and Events page.
