|Penang Public Park | Botanic Gardens @ Waterfalls Gardens|
When I revisited the Botanic Gardens recently, I started paying attention to what the Gardens is composed of. Lush greenery, unique flora, exotic fauna and home to the nature at its best. The sight of Canon ball trees (Couroupita guianensis), Pinang Palm (Areca catechu), Sengkuang tree (Dracontomelon dao) and Macaques (monkeys) are hardly missed by anyone. But that is not all about it, Penang Botanic Gardens also serves as a repository and houses collections of exotic and rare species of plants. So as one goes around the paved loops, Fern House, Aroid Walkway, Orchidarium, Cactus House, Begonia House, Herb Garden and Sun Rockery, (just to name a few) may cross your path. Wonderful treasures. Malaysia natural heritage, indeed!
Aside from the former popular names, this sanctuary is also earned a nick-name, the Monkey Gardens. Constituted from Macaques and Dusky Leaf Monkeys, they are part of the permanent residents here. Running wild, hanging around and living freely. In a simple sentence, the monkeys are the kings of the Gardens, so it is wise not to mess with them. Be polite. And do not offer food to them as they are never starved.
