Located away from the main roads and popular tourist areas in Penang, Linear Park (or Taman Jajar) is a rather hidden public park that has a beautiful landscape reminiscence of the Taiping Lake Garden, with its rain trees.
Linear Park runs along the Ayer Itam River, and is linked to the Suffolk House via a red brick bridge. The park is located at York Road, Penang.
One of the things to do in Penang is to take a quiet stroll along the path that goes around the Botanic Gardens. The surrounding lush green forest and the occasional sight of small creatures from the woods make this a worthwhile walk.
