A hilltop rest and relaxation spot, Commonwealth Hill is a memorial
park dedicated to the 16th Commonwealth Games held in Kuala Lumpur.
It sits in between the Sri Petaling and the Bukit Jalil light
rail transit station, about 20 minutes rides from the heart of
Kuala Lumpur. Busy with avid joggers in the morning, the hills
prove a hit among health conscious Malaysians. It's steeped contour
makes the hill a challenging jogging track.
Climb to the highest peak, Scenic Plaza (Plaza Pandangan) and
appreciate the beautiful view of the neighbouring National Sports
Complex. Be amazed by the neatly structured complexes around the
area especially the golf course. One can even get a clear view
of the Kuala Lumpur skyline, which is exceptionally amazing in
the morning and late evenings.
The place also caters for people who find pleasure in slow lazy
strolls. Take a walk along the man made lake to enjoy the fresh
morning sun. Relish the surroundings, a mixture of shady trees,
bright flowering plants and green palms that greet you along the
way. Relax at the resting areas after a long saunter.
You may also pack your favourite snack and head for a picnic
at the 35 hectares International Garden. A must see, the place
boasts a boating pond and an ornamental lake. In addition, a cascading
waterfall greets visitors to site. Make a visit to the 28 themed
gardens to view typical characteristics of different eastern and
western countries. Each garden speaks the nature of a particular
country through its flora and fauna.
Sports enthusiasts can gather interesting information regarding
the countries that took part in KL'98 and the history of the Commonwealth
Games at three special plazas, Bendera, Komanwel and Central.
