Nightshots at Perdana Park

Perdana Park SignName800
Welcome to Tanjung Aru!

Perdana Park is located in Tanjung Aru, Kota Kinabalu Sabah and is a relatively new recreational park equipped with rubberised jogging track, fitness equipment for stretching your eager body, playground for the kids, lounge for light drink, and of course musical fountain. For this entry I will share a bit of the night view a.k.a melodious water fountain.

The park in brief:

Official opening/Officiated by: Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak, 28 January 2011
Opened to public: 30 January 2011
Developed by: Timatch Sdn Bhd
Cost: RM50mil or thereabout

Don't be late for the kick off. The first few refreshing songs are accompanied by more energetic fountain displays.

Sit back and relax, enjoy the 10-minute performance; like them.

It's crowded but that's part of the fun.

Some of the many colours of the water:

6-second exposure and you get nice smooth capture

13 seconds increases your chances of 'catching' multiple fountain colours.

If early evening does not suit you, 8.30pm maybe be just nice for you. Musical fountain display is a daily affair and there are four sets of 10-minute per set performance from between 7.00pm to 8.40pm.

Jog, relax, and enjoy. Be there or be square!

namron, Zezebel, SJB, Jj, beaty > boleh dikatakan baru lah. Sekaranglah masa yg sesuai utk melawat/tangkap gambar sbab lampu2 & fountain pumps masih berfungsi dgn baik. Kalau sdh rosak, belum tentu kena maintain dgn baik.
