Kepong Metropolitan Park
It is easy to locate this 90-hectare park in Kepong, just look for the kite-filled skies on weekends! Kepong Metropolitan Park opened in 1991 and recent kiting activities have spurred a renaissance of sorts. There has been tremendous improvement in its facilities, including road signs which warn 500m ahead to avoid traffic jams and etc. The carnival-like atmosphere on the weekends is made complete with food, kites and toys stalls all peddling their wares on curb-side stalls near the entrance.
Jalan Kepong, Taman Kepong
From the Batu Caves roundabout, head to Kepong and go straight. Look out for signboards with Taman Metropolitan and kites about 500m before the Park on your left-hand side.
