Sibu - Parks and Gardens

Parks and Gardens

Sibu has a few urban and suburban parks for the leisure activities of locals and tourists. Gu Tian Park is a landscaped park situated at Bukit Lima Road. It was built by the Gu Tian(古田)Community. Another park is Hoover Park, a suburban park built by Methodist Church, Sibu and to be maintained by the town council. Being near Sungai Merah Heritage Walk, there are plans to integrate it into one tourist destination in the future.

Sibu also has forest parks such as Bukit Lima Forest Park and Forestry Recreation Park. Bukit Lima Forest Park has a 2 km plankwalk, which is ideal for jogging. The Forestry Recreation Park which covers 200 hectares of land at 18.5 km Ulu Oya Road, is managed by the Forestry Department. The park's facilities include a camping site, a 30-metre watch-tower, a cattle and deer farm, and a huge fish pond. A major attraction to be included soon is a butterfly farm.

Famous quotes containing the words parks and, gardens and/or parks:

    Perhaps our own woods and fields,—in the best wooded towns, where we need not quarrel about the huckleberries,—with the primitive swamps scattered here and there in their midst, but not prevailing over them, are the perfection of parks and groves, gardens, arbors, paths, vistas, and landscapes. They are the natural consequence of what art and refinement we as a people have.... Or, I would rather say, such were our groves twenty years ago.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Have We not made the earth as a cradle
    and the mountains as pegs?
    And We created you in pairs,
    and We appointed your sleep for a rest;
    and We appointed night for a garment,
    and We appointed day for a livelihood.
    And We have built above you seven strong ones,
    and We appointed a blazing lamp
    and have sent down out of the rain-clouds water cascading
    that We may bring forth thereby grain and plants,
    and gardens luxuriant.
    Qur’an, “The Tiding” 78:6-16, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)
