Welcome to D.R. Park

Headed for the green lung, right smack in Ipoh City recently for a change of scenery. Quite disappointed that the park, known locally as just D.R. Park, which was opened back in the early 1950’s, isn’t as well-maintained as it should be. D.R. Park was formerly known as Coronation Park.

Within the D.R. Park grounds is a “Japanese Mini Garden”, which was officially launched on 30th June, 1995, to mark the relationship between Ipoh and sister city Fukuoka, Japan. This garden, on an area of 1.2 hectares, is also, sadly, neglected. In any case, I’ll just show you the good sides of both D.R. Park and Japanese Mini Garden.
