Kuala Lumpur City Center Park, also known as KLCC Park in short, is a 50-hectare park beside PETRONAS Twin Towers and Suria KLCC.

KLCC Park is designed and built to promote biodiversity. Across the park, you can find 1,900 indigenous trees and 66 species of palms. These plants are carefully chosen to attract local and migratory birds to the park.

Locals and travelers visit the park to take a breather from the hustle and bustle around the city center. It is also a great spot to visit with your children. There is a playground and many water features around.

Around lunch and dinner hours, you will see locals and office workers bringing their own food to the park to have a picnic in the park or to eat at one of the many gazebos there.

Every evening, the fountains at the man-made Symphony Lake put up eye-catching musical fountain performances. Musical fountain shows start every 1 hour or so and they never fail to pull a large crowd.

Getting There and Around

To reach KLCC Park, you need to first get yourself to Suria KLCC.

By Train

The closest train station to the twin towers is the KLCC LRT (Light Rapid Transit) Station on the Kelana Jaya Line.

When you arrive at the station, follow the signs guiding commuters towards Suria KLCC. The walk through an air-conditioned walkway takes less than 5 minutes.

Once you are inside the shopping mall, take an escalator up to the Ground (G) Level and walk towards the bubble lifts located at the center of the floor. The exit to KLCC Park is just opposite these lifts.

By Foot

You can walk to the park using the KLCC to Bukit Bintang Pedestrian Walkway if you are near Pavilion Kuala Lumpur or the Bukit Bintang area.

The walkway is elevated, covered and air-conditioned.

If you are coming from Bukit Bintang, you can find the entrance to the walkway at Connection, which is an outdoor but covered section for bars, restaurants and cafes. It is located at Level 3 of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.

The pedestrian walkway will bring you to Kuala Lumpur Convention Center. From there, take an escalator down and there should be signs pointing towards KLCC Park.

By Taxi

Most taxi drivers in Kuala Lumpur know where KLCC Park is. They will drop you off at Suria KLCC‘s entrance.

Walk into the shopping mall. The exit to the park is just opposite the mall’s entrance and the bubble lifts.

Some unscrupulous taxi drivers may quote unreasonably high fares for travelers heading towards the KLCC area, citing poor traffic conditions and other excuses. Insist on paying according to the meter or at least a reasonable fixed fare.

The following is a list of estimated taxi fares from key attractions around Kuala Lumpur to Suria KLCC:

  • Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to Suria KLCC: RM89 to RM133
  • Mid Valley Megamall to Suria KLCC: RM13 to RM20
  • KL Tower to Suria KLCC: RM6 to RM9
  • Petaling Street (Chinatown) to Suria KLCC: RM8 to RM12
  • Bukit Bintang to Suria KLCC: RM7 to RM11

The estimated fares above may vary due to traffic conditions, and they do not include the 50% midnight surcharge.

Once you get off the taxi, walk into Suria KLCC. Then, you can find the exit to the park right opposite the entrance and bubble lifts. The man-made lake is the first thing you will see after exiting the mall.

By Bus

You can reach KLCC by bus too.

The bus you take will stop either at KLCC LRT Station or Suria KLCC‘s entrance at Jalan P. Ramlee.

If the bus drops you off at the Jalan P. Ramlee bus stop, all you need to do is to walk a short distance into the shopping mall. Then, walk past the bubble lifts and you should see an exit to the park.

On the other hand, if you are getting off at KLCC LRT Station, walk down the stairs leading to the train station.

Instead of going to the station, follow the signs guiding visitors towards Suria KLCC. You need to walk for less than 5 minutes through an air-conditioned underground walkway to reach the shopping mall.

Once you are in Suria KLCC, take an escalator up to the Ground Level and walk towards the bubble lifts located at the center of the floor. The exit to KLCC Park is opposite the lifts.
