Plan to spend 2-3 hours here and more if you intend to do jungle trekking. Trails 3 and 7 pass through this park and lead you to Gunung Beremban. This park was officially opened by the Sultan of Pahang on 14 June 2003.

The first garden that you will encounter at the entrance of the park is the English Garden. There are many colourful flowers and plants with nicely done landscaping around them. A good location to take some photographs as well as learning the various type of flowers here.



This park houses the oldest tea bushes in Malaysia and you can still see them today. Go towards the end of the park and you will see the thriving tea trees with plenty of leaves on the slope of the hill. Climb up the cemented steps and take a panorama view of this place. There is a shelter with benches that you can sit and enjoy the scenery of this park and the surrounding area. The tea processing factory established in 1935 was also the oldest in Malaysia and is still capable of producing black tea today.
