This is not the largest park in KL but it may just be the cleanest. Everything here is in good condition. The planners have made excellent use of the limited square footage – you’ll find everything you need in a park, starting with the workout facilities and extending to a futsal court, children’s playground, lake and walking track. There’s also a large expanse of open field – a simple luxury not often found these days – perfect for children or impromptu cartwheeling. Taman Tasik Datuk Keramat is particularly popular with joggers in the evening.
Gym equipment: There’s a wide range of equipment here, all of them in good condition complete with signs with instructions for each machine. The best piece is definitely the rowing machine, but there’s also an elliptical trainer, chest press, hand pulley and the park version of a treadmill. The equipment are arranged in a ring, underneath a futuristic dome-like structure, with a large space in the middle for stretching, lunging and handstands.
Maintenance and cleanliness: The park is decently-kept. The children’s playground looks like it gets a lot more use than the workout station, but even so is in perfect working condition. Ample rubbish bins around so no conspicuous litter.
Park facilities: Parking space is limited, but with two LRT stations in walking distance, you can’t really complain. There are large, well-kept toilets that are open from 7am to 7pm, a children’s playground and a floodlit futsal court. There’s also the requisite lake, with several sheltered alcoves for park-goers to relax in (we saw quite a few picnickers).
Accessibility: Right opposite Jelatek LRT station (complete with footbridge), with the Dato’ Keramat station just around the corner. Down the road is Dataran Jelatek, a small multi-level F&B complex.
