Lake Gardens KL Birdpark and Butterfly Park

At the edge of the city,this area of landscaped gardens,statues and parks can be a welcome respite from the concrete jungle of Kuala Lumpur,or it can be a hot and sweaty walk....

The main attractions are the Butterfly Park,Bird Park and National Monument

The Bird Park houses more than 3,000 birds and 200 species from all over the world.If you've a few hours to kill and quite like birds or you just want to escape Kuala Lumpur and see some greenery the Birdpark is worth a visit. You'll come across miniature gardens, pools and water cascades, bridges, flowering plants ...and bird feeding stations. Divided into zones you'll find, a Flamingo pond, Pelicans, Hornbill Park, World of Parrots, a Waterfall Aviary, Amphitheatre, Children's playground and Seminar Room.Birds here include Flamingos, Hornbills, Water hens, Parrots, Cockatoos, Storks, Pheasants, Mynahs Pigeons, Macaws, and Ducks.

The Butterfly Park and insect museum is OK,especially if you like Butterflies and Insects.

The nearby National Monument looks suspiciously like the Iwo Jima monument in Washington DC and not surprisingly was designed by the same sculptor
