KLCC Park
http://www.suriaklcc.com.my/attractions/klcc-park/

The 50-acre tropical landscape in the heart of the KLCC development provides an urban sanctuary for all. The public park reflects the tropical greenery, vibrant colours and patterns of the country's rich cultural heritage while its calm setting help dissipate the tensions of city living.

The park is unique in its theme and concept. This verdant area accentuated with specially designed water features is a work of art.

It features various amenities such as a two-acre children's playground, symphony fountain, wading pool, jogging track, shelters and benches, patterned foot-paths and sculptures.

Approximately 1,900 indigenous trees and palms representing 74 species are planted to encourage bio-diversities within the park areas. Out of this number, some 40 trees were preserved and transplanted from the former Selangor Turf Club.

Another striking feature of the park is the Lake Symphony which comprises two water fountains. Located at the esplanade outside Suria KLCC, the Lake Symphony is programmed to provide 150 magical dramatic animations. The total effect is a light hearted and gregarious atmosphere.

They really need to put a monument on this park to remind visitors that it was the former grounds of the KL Racecourse (now in Mines, Serdang). It was really a money spinner. Just because it was betting and having a horse monument for fear of idol worship (or really) doesn't mean it doesn't deserve to be appreciated. This goes to many other developments as well such as KL Eco City which is on the site of the former Kampung Abdullah Hukum, a prominent Malay chieftan in KL who opened the oldest Kampung in KL (after Kampung Baru). KL developers seem not to appreciate history too much. It can be a nice artwork to entice visitors/tenants to come. In Penang Times Square, there was a monument in the form of abstract statues stating that the area was once a tin smelter. Singapore has a lot of monuments too.
