Water Fountain Garden

Park in Nay Pyi Taw

More or less at the heart of Nay Pyi Taw is this government-built, 165-acre grassy park boasting ponds, swinging bridges, gardens, fountains, kitschy sculptures, a playground and a massive water slide (if you have children with you, bring bathing suits). The gurgling, colourfully lit fountains are usually turned on at around dusk and add to the allure alongside the twinkling fairy lights festooning the (ageing) structures scattered around the grounds.
