Cascading waterfalls and natural ponds flourish with colourful fishes, lotus and water lilies, creating a home for the free-roaming pelicans, flamingos, swans, egrets, storks, herons and colourful ducks. Observe from the Chinese-style wooden bridges that traverse the water or relax in the little Malay huts that dot the park to enjoy the beauty of nature at play.
