Penang turned out to be a perfect place to visit when travelling with children but there was one place that I just have to share with you all. A FREE activity for the whole family!
Youth Park (as it’s now been nicknamed) or Taman Perbandaran is a fabulous place but doesn’t necessarily get the attention it deserves, certainly not from tourists.
Located very close to the Botanic Gardens, not only does this place offer an easy access playground at the entrance (which looked brand new and was so original with its little roads and town set-up!) there’s a second large playground inside, and then also the most amazing combination of artificial rock pools and a swimming pool for everyone to use!
Add to that the Penang Skate Park, a basketball court, adventure trails, lots of open space to run around in or have picnics, and this really is the address you need for a day of relaxation!
We were there on a weekend and it was fairly busy but not overly so.
The water features seem to be the main attraction here and were certainly enjoyed by many families in the Penang heat! Definitely worth a visit! S x
