Miri bulatan park is probably the earliest recreation park set up in Miri. It also incorporate a traffic garden within it. Bulatan Park literally means "Round Park" and I have no idea why it was name that way. Maybe because it is located along Jalan Bulatan.
I have fond memories here as this was where I usually jog in the evening for about 9 months when I was a student at the nearby Prime College Miri (the site of Miri blind Society at Jalan Jee Foh 8).
It is a scenic jog around the tarmac here with the surrounding trees and lake as the backdrop. A complete lap around the track is about 800m. The track actually goes round the lake. I think my best record here is doing 8 or 10 laps.
The park has a huge lake with a clock tower in the middle. Boat jetty and canteen is also available at the edge of the lake.
I don't recall there is a bridge connecting the park with the clock tower during my days here. What a shame that the clock tower no longer functional now.
This traffic garden should be the venue for the annual Shell Traffic Games in Miri.
The Pavilion is located at the other end of the park and I am sad to see its present condition. Some of its fiber glass roof tiles are gone and the once beautiful fountain no longer function.
I hope to jog here again in the near future to relive my 1997 memories here.
