There is this wonderfully picturesque park in the core of Sungai Ara on Penang Island named Taman Jajar.
It is a surprisingly sizeable and well-equipped park. Taman Jajar has a fenced-off football field, stage area atop a hill, 2km loop walking path, children’s playground, exercise machines, and neatly cultivated flowerbeds lining the walkways.
And the lush greenery is nicely carved up by a curvy creek that snakes its way through the entire park.
What a hidden gem in a heavily populated neighbourhood such as Sungai Ara, which is right next to Bayan Lepas and Relau and all the high-rise apartment buildings.
Just look at how perfectly picturesque this park is!
A well-kept park that the local residents are clearly immensely proud of. Let’s hope they continue to keep it that way.
So if you’re ever in the area, go drop by Taman Jajar (Linear Park) in the south side of Penang Island!
