In addition to the Perdana Park and Tun Fuad Stephens Park, another nice place to hang around and unwind your body and mind after a long and tiring day at the office is Taman Awam Teluk Likas, Likas Kota Kinabalu Sabah. Taman Awam Teluk Likas is located along Jalan Tuan Fuad Stephens or also known as the Coastal Highway. It is very near to Masjid Bandaraya (City Mosque) and Wisma Perindustrian Likas.
It was opened to the public some time last year, but before the renovation/beautification works, it was already quite a popular spot for picnics and gatherings. It used to be mere grassy land with fir trees, but now there are playground, parking spots, more trees and flowers, public washrooms, flag poles, etc. It is the annual spot for the Dragon Boat Festival and some other water sports. The Teluk Likas Public Park is very well maintained by DBKK (Kota Kinabalu City Council).
It is a nice place for a swim, or do some fishing or exercising. From there you can gaze upon the coasts of Kota Kinabalu City, Yayasan Sabah building and the ships berthing. The crowd usually flock in Taman Awam Teluk Likas in the late afternoon. If the traffic is clear, it would take only about 5 minutes-drive from KK city.
