Picnic Spot In Sg. Liang

This morning, we went jalan-jalan at the Sg. Liang Forest Recreational Park.


Although this place is barely 5 mins drive from home, the last time we were here was 2 years ago. I don't know why when this place is actually a lovely and shady place (very important for those sun-conscious) to hike, walk, swim or learn more about nature and Brunei diversity.

Being a public holiday today, there were already some family picnics going on, with barbeque smokes billowing from the few huts around and gleeful shouts and splashes from the lagoon.

Walking around this park, one can even learn the names of the many types of plants that grew in this park.

Tongkat Ali : In case you didn't know how this "famous" plant looks like Pendarahan : Which means "bleeding". Creepy name for a tree.

I think the best thing about this park is the man-made lagoon which at that time, was already busy with kids and teenagers jumping in and swimming around. Water is quite murky, perhaps because of the rain that we've been having the last few weeks.

Lagoon

There is a stream running across the park and it has the usual clusters of teratai, none in bloom unfortunately, and some fat looking fish swimming around. Too bad we did not have anything to offer those fish as I'm sure it would thrill the girls to feed them.

We'll have picnics here one of these days soon.

Here's some background information about the Sg. Liang Forest Recreational Park taken from U2Asean.Com

Sungai Liang is about 70 km from Bandar Seri Begawan, and the drive takes about an hour along the coastal highway. The park is 450 metres from the main Sungai Liang junction along the road to Labi.

This is one of several parks which have been developed and maintained for public recreation. The park is one of very few lowland forest areas in Southeast Asia and has facilities for general recreational activities, such as picnicking, jogging and hiking. It also caters for natural history devotees, with self-guided or organised group tours of the forest. The main pond, with its shelter platforms and open areas in the central complex, should satisfy visitors looking simply for fresh air and beautiful outdoor surroundings.


The more energetic may care to explore the network of well-marked nature trails that wind their way around the park, including a high-level canopy walkway in the tree-tops. This wonderful facility will give you a totally different perspective on the rainforest.

Hello, I do not agree with the previous commentator - not so simple
