The Armenian Park located at Armenian Street at the heart of George Town’s heritage zone, underwent some re-development recently and is now transformed into a more proper public garden for those who wish to take in some greenery in the city.
Locally known as Penang’s “Avatar” Secret Garden, this recent addition to the island is actually a renovated and re-developed mini park at the small hill behind the Tanjung Tokong Tua Pek Kong Temple. The trees as well as the hill and its surroundings are decorated with various lightings (that change and illuminating different colors in intervals) which almost resemble the Pandora forest from the movie Avatar.
