Commonwealth Forest Park & Resort
These three forested areas together form a large green lung on the northern edge of the city and let’s hope they remain pristine because development is nibbling at their edges. This park was established in 1993 to mark the 14th Commonwealth Forest Conference. Then for a while, the park fell into disrepair until a firm called Future World Avenue Sdn Bhd took over management of a 260-hectare portion of the park which is now branded as Commonwealth Forest Park & Resort. They are geared more towards large groups for team building events, seminars, and so on but they can accommodate smaller groups and day-trippers too. It’s capable of hosting a large group of visitors and the resort also offers BBQs and boating activities. There is also having a cafe that serves local delights, pizza, coffee, and dessert such as cake.
The resort is centered on the original venue for the Conference. There is a concreted open space called Dataran Commonwealth with flagposts and a fountain. It is surrounded by neatly landscaped gardens and lakes and dotted with well-maintained picnic gazebos. A picturesque stream runs alongside this area with more picnic tables.
