Kebun-Kebun Bangsar

Lake Gardens, Brickfields & Bangsar

A community group led by local architect Ng Seksan has created this garden on an 8-acre linear strip of land reserved for the national electricity company's pylons as they march through Bangsar. Join volunteers on weekends to help tend the garden terraces packed with indigenous plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables – there's even a section of rice paddy. Bee hives, creative gazebos and landscaping elements add to the charm.
