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.
