Perdana Park Tg Aru
One of the latest attraction in Kota Kinabalu Sabah is the newly built Perdana Park at Hone Place Tg Aru. It was officially opened on 28th January 2011 by YAB Datuk Sri Najib Tun Razak, the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Built on a 16-acre area, Perdana Park is the very first recreational park in KK with a musical fountain performance. It was donated by Timatch Sdn Bhd for the benefit, inspiration and enjoyment of the people of Sabah.
The park is an OKU (handicapable) friendly park.
Among its main features are the musical fountain, purified water provided free of charge, caters to special physical needs, a containerized stage that could be used for cultural shows, reflexology footpaths and exercise areas. Most of the visitors come early in the morning or late in the evening to jog and do some exercise and watch the musical fountain shows.
It is also a very nice place to relax and breathe fresh clean air after a long tiring day at work.
If you just want to see the show (musical fountain), then you better pick a time between 7 pm to 8.30 pm to be there. There are 4 sets of shows daily: 7.00 to 7.10 pm; 7.30 to 7.40 pm; 8.00 to 8.10 pm and 8.30 – 8.40 pm. As you can see from the picture above, the fountains are beautiful to watch at night.
- Accompanied by great selection of music, you’ll probably want to turn the park into a dance floor.
- There are many that actually couldn’t help themselves and dance to the beat of the music.
The car park is quite big and there are ample spaces for you to park your car. The park is well maintained – very clean and beautiful. Even the toilets smell good and fresh. By the way, in case you are hungry or wish to have a drink or dinner with your friends or loved ones, there are few shop/restaurants that you can choose from.
Otherwise you can walk to Anjung Perdana at Tg Aru Beach nearby and enjoy chicken wings and mee goreng.
Perdana Park is opened daily to the public from 6 am to 10 pm
