Celebrate the Park on 19 November at Ampang Forest

Come and join the fun on Saturday, 19 November, from 9 am - 1.30 pm.  There will be games, a Heritage Hunt with cash prizes, and so much more.

Email to  TrEES  if you would like to register for the Heritage Hunt, or if you need more information.

How to get there:
If you have a large group of 30 or more, TrEES may be able to help organise a bus, so send us an email.


1. By train: Take the Rapid KL train (Ampang line) from the Masjid Jamek station and get off at the last station which is Ampang itself. From here, you could either take a taxi directly there or take a bus to Lembah Jaya Utara (U332 – you have to cross the road to get to the bus stop though). However, if you choose to take the bus, you’ll have to walk a bit farther up to get to the picnic spot. 

2. Take the U332 bus from KL itself (near KLCC) and yes, you still have to walk a bit… about 20-30 minutes, more or less. 

3.  By car – just stay on Jalan Ampang until the very, very end (heading out of the city, towards Ampang).  It winds through a small kampong, and then you’ll end up at the parking lot.
