Ipoh Riverfront Park
(Taman Persisiran Ipoh)
Ipoh Riverfront park, costing 4.4mil Ringgit Malaysia, is developed under phase 1 of the Kinta Riverfront Project.
It is located just beside the Kinta River at the old town side (Kinta River is the divider of Ipoh Old Town and New Town). You will see the park on your left when you go along Jalan Sultan Iskandar Shah (Hugh Low Street).
This modern landscaped park has replaced the People's Park, which formerly used as car park and weekend flea market.
Knowing about the cost of building, I went to the park that day to take a look. I went passed the park before, and I was surprised when I went into the park instead and saw the children recreational pool.
Up from the crossbeam of pillars, water was pouring down. Children were playing happily.
There is a mamak food stall at the park. So, when you and your children are tired, thirsty and hungry of playing around, you have the place for food, drinks and even air-conditioned rest.
Despite the common garden with trees and flowers, and playground, the park is specially decorated with arches topped with mosque-like domes. So, it's a good spot for some photo shootings and dating too.
Oh yea, the last thing I want to mention about is the toilet! I think it's one of the prettiest public toilet of parks in Malaysia. It has a small roofless square placed with plants. My friend even took a picture in the toilet.
