The Penang Botanic Gardens, (Malay: Taman Kebun Bunga) also known as the "Waterfall Gardens" because of the cascading waterfall nearby,is a public park situated on Jalan Air Terjun (Waterfall Road) in George Town on Penang Island, Malaysia. The gardens occupy a 29 ha. site in a valley described as "an amphitheatre of hills" covered with lush tropical rain-forests. Its lush greenery and tranquil setting makes it a favourite park and a popular tourist destination. It is Penang's unique natural heritage, being the only garden of its kind in Malaysia.
Inside the garden, you can see many people who jogging around the park. Many just walk in to experience the fresh air and the beauty of the natural landscape and rich diversity of flora and fauna.
Along the walking trek, you definite have chance to see wild monkeys from different species. The visitors are not allowed to feed the monkeys as they will become wild and will hurt the small child. Anyway, it is a great place to go for the weekend or school holidays.
