Do you fancy kite flying? When you want to go kite flying in Kuala Lumpur, the best place in town is Kepong Metropolitan Park.
Whenever I go to Kuala Lumpur for leisure or business, and drive all the way to Petaling Jaya using the MRR2 highway, I see a lot of kites flying in the sky. Not just 10 or 20 kites; I think there are usually more than 200 kites. I never had a chance to stop by, until last month.
Kepong Metropolitan Park was opened in 2001. This is a 95-hectare park, which includes a 57-hectare lake. The park is fully-equipped with a cycling track, jogging track, children’s playground, toilet, car parks, and for sure, a large open space for kite flying.
During weekends, this park is full of people. Most of them come here for kite flying; you can see various styles and sizes of kite flying in the sky. Don’t worry if you don’t have a kite, there are a few kite sellers in the park. From small to big kites, fish to hero kites, just pick your favorite.
Go to Kepong Metropolitan Park, not only for kite flying. You can go there for jogging or cycling. Relax, sit back, and enjoy the beauty of the park.
