Sarikei Lake Garden

Sarikei Lake Garden is located a kilometer away from the heart of Sarikei town. It is easily spotted via Jalan Repok when driving into the town.

The garden open for the public from 5.30am until 11pm

There are amazing fish pond and the scenic view of landscape surrounding the garden makes it the choice for those seeking tranquility and calmness

There are a few food and drink stalls beside the lake

The Lake Garden built in 1995 has become a favourite social gathering venue for the town's people in the evening for recreation and exercising.

Playground for kids is also available at the garden

Another prominent structure in the garden is the beautifully decorated water tower (which is now redundant). This is probably the most attractive water tower I ever come across. It is well crafted with hibiscus flowers around its tank.

Due to the cooling property of the water, it has attracted bees to built their hives around it. Quite a scary sight indeed

There are also a few structures around the lake such as the clock tower (which still function), sheds and mini arch

It's interesting that Sarikei has so many parks and decorated pavements right in town itself. Seriously I've never seen these even in KL itself. At most just trees and some green bushes :)

I agree with you just looking at the picture of that huge fish pond has already a soothing effect on me. The garden looks like a great place for strolling and relaxation.

The park looks clean! I love to walk in the parks especially those with a nice lake.

The water tower really looks unique in that surrounding. Yikes! The bees hives look scary! Won't want to disturb them! Otherwise may have to jump into the lake! LOL!
