As the country enters the Recovery Movement Control Order period (RMCO) in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Penang Botanic Gardens is reopening its gates to the public with some precautionary measures in place.
The gardens will be open from 7am to 7pm daily but limit to a maximum of 200 visitors only at any given time. Visitors will also need to record their visits and have their temperatures checked prior to entering the gardens.
The Penang Botanic Gardens, also known as the “Waterfall Gardens” because of the cascading waterfall nearby, is a public park situated on Jalan Air Terjun (Waterfall Road) in George Town on Penang Island, Malaysia. The original gardens were established in 1884 from an old quarry site, under the supervision of Charles Curtis, who was the first superintendent.
