Conserving a 66-acre green-lung in the heart of Kuala Lumpur and turning it into an urban forest park for the community, the forest park offers a fresh public green space for the community to use, to enjoy, to experience, to own.

What to Expect?

Located next to Tugu Negara, the forest trails are in serene environment with more than 5,000 indigenous trees. About 40 acres consisting of approximately 5km of forest trails within this park is open daily to public from 7am – 6.30pm and admission is free of charge. Taman Tugu offers a cooling hiking spot in the heart of KL.

Once the site of government homes and then an unofficial landfill, Tapak Taman Tugu was saved from commercial developers for any housing or commercial projects. Instead, it was converted to a 66-acre public park and conservation site with almost 5 kilometres of trails.

By partnering with the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM), over a thousand trees in Taman Tugu have been marked for preservation. More trees, including indigenous species, are being planted on-site within nurseries to eventually be moved into the main forest area.

This park is so clean that it’s hard to believe that not long ago it was a dumping ground and over 150 truckloads of trash have been cleared away from this site since its conversion. With its well-marked trails and low difficulty that even children can enjoy, this is a favourite spot for many Malaysians to enjoy nature.

The last entry is at 5.45pm – this applies to the carpark, the nursery, and the trails. Strictly no entry is allowed thereafter. Anyone who has entered the park prior must exit by 6.30pm at the latest.

The Taman Tugu Project is a not-for-profit corporate social responsibility (“CSR”) initiative led by Khazanah Nasional Berhad (“Khazanah”) with the support of various public sector agencies and civil-society organisations.

The scope and costing of the project have been through many iterations based on feedback from key stakeholders, engagement with the public sector as well as budget availability.

    This was one of the best parts of the trip. The 4K hike was like an endurance test. Lots of water, right clothes, and check the weather before you start. There are several exits in case you want to give up and abort your hike. Good company will help.

    Still the best place to make believe that you're deep in the tropical rainforest when in actuality you're just minutes away from the Central Business District.Truly lovely 5km trails with public facilities where you can sit to enjoy a cool drink or grab a snack after walking the trails. Recently Taman Tugu started introducing Sunday Living History Events. They host people who were/are part of shaping our nation. This Sunday, it was a group of military veterans who played a significant role in countering the bloody Communist Insurgency.

    An amazing recreational spot within the city of Kuala Lumpur!

    Well maintained and well equipped with 3 picnic areas with sitting arrangements, restrooms, parking, etc.

    Trail lane is amazing and very refreshing!

    Easily accessible from anywhere in the city.

    Parking is free with a good amount of parking slots.

    A liberating place to walk in nature in the morning. There were a variation of plants and flowers to see which were interesting to look at. There is also a river and a tree house ( stairs to climb) to reward you of your long journey. Came here a couple times already and never disappoint

    I never knew this place existed after so many years in KL! It is a wonderful place for light to medium level nature walk. Its a forest in the city and kudos for having such a place to escape within the concrete jungle of KL. Plenty of free parking space and fresh, crisp cool air here.
