Taman Lembah Kiara

Taman Lembah Kiara is a family-oriented park located in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur. Skate boarder, roller-skater, Bikers, family and joggers often can be seen here.

This is a one of the best place for jogging in klang valley. Entrance is free, park is clean, enough parking spaces, and cemented platform, benches and bars for warming up.

The running paths are well-paved. Along the way, there are trees, suspension bridges, shallow streams, large pond and nice scene on higher spot.

The route separated into two paths, one that is harder with more uphill and the another for more leisure around the large pond, both are connected at different points. The whole routes is a big circle, so doesn’t need to worry it will lead you to the other end of park.

The smaller loop is about 1.15km and bigger loop is near to 2km. For 10km training, i run a mix of 8 small + 1 big loops.

Lots of monkeys along the routes, so you might need to be careful on your belongings.

Please note that this place will be crowded on evenings and weekend mornings. If it is fully parked, you can always park along the road outside, there are plenty of spaces around.
