Gunung Lang Recreational Park
Gunung Lang Recreational Park is located off Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman. It was opened in the year of 2000 by Ipoh City Council with the objective to be a recreational park as a getaway for city folks and also to attract tourists. It is developed around a scenic backdrop of limestone hills of Gunung Lang and Gunung Bilike.
The park covers an area of 30.35 hectares consisting of a two sectioned park and a lake. The lake is stocked with fish such as lampan, tilapia and catfish.These fishes are tame and swarm the jetty, whereby visitors can feed them with bread and fish food. Fish food can be purchased at the counter in front of the entrance. It is also surrounded by greenery and limestone outcrops.
The park’s main attractions are the man-made cascading waterfall atop a limestone hill with a large sign that is lighted up at night and can been seen from the highway. It also has other attractions such as a 2 km boardwalk over the swamp and two watch towers and three kampung houses. There are also facilities like a children’s playground, campsite, mini zoo, a prayer room and washrooms. One must take a boat ride from the jetty, if they want to get to the park.
