Many of us have dreams of living in the midst of lush greenery where we can find respite from the hustle and bustle of city life. Imagine having a forest reserve right in your backyard where you can slip into your jungle boots anytime you wish and hike to your heart’s content.

That’s exactly what living in a condominium in Kepong can deliver. Here are three green lungs in the vicinity that can help you reconnect with the great outdoors.

Kepong Metropolitan Park

Don’t let the word ‘Metropolitan’ fool you into thinking it is merely a city-centric park. This place has tons of fun within nature!

On any given evening, the Kepong Metropolitan Park is a popular spot for kite-flying because it was purpose-built to accommodate such activity. The field, which runs parallel to the main road, had its trees removed to ensure a 100m-clearance for kites to be launched.

The expansive park spanning 95 hectares houses a 57-hectare lake that used to attract recreational anglers (fishing was prohibited from 2012 onwards). But park visitors can take to other amenities such as the remote-control car track, a jogging and cycling track, a reflexology facility, as well as a football field.

Forest Research Institute Malaysia

Kepong residents are very proud of playing host to reputedly the world’s oldest and largest re-created tropical rainforest that is the Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM).

FRIM is a statutory governmental agency under the Ministry of Land, Water and Natural Resources. It is tasked with promoting sustainable management and optimal use of forest resources in the country.  It was gazetted under the National Heritage Act 2005 as a Natural Heritage in 2009.

Visitors may go trekking at several Nature Trails, set up camp at the Perah Campsite or picnic at Sungai Kroh. The arboretum, a repository of living plants that house at least 354 species of plants, promises an educational experience like no other.

Whilst in the forest, be sure to look up towards the treetops and keep an eye out for a spell-binding display of crown shyness where leaves from one tree seem to shy away from touching those from another.

Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve

If one is still not convinced that living in a condo in Kepong affords greater intimacy with verdant surroundings, look no further than the Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve, that serves as a buffer for the conservation of the 544-hectare FRIM campus. It is one of the last wildlife corridors that connect to the Templer and Kanching recreational forests, which are part of the Selangor State Parks.

The Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve houses a pristine waterfall, which also acts as a pivotal water catchment zone supplying water to the surrounding area. It is also the home of the nearby Orang Asli community.

Kepong: A City of Nature

All said and done, living in a condo does not mean one has to be cut off from nature. In Kepong, you can always slip away from the modern hustle-and-bustle to the tranquil environs of the forests.

M-Luna by Mah Sing is a serviced apartment situated a mere 100m away from Kepong Metropolitan Park and also a stone’s throw away from FRIM. Look forward to weekends filled with outdoor fun as you reconnect with nature and soak up its beauty.
