Damuan Park - also known as Taman Persiaran Damuan - is a well-known local park in Bandar Seri Begawan. What sets this park apart from other parks is its notable ambiance - quiet, relaxing, and ever so peaceful.
Damuan Park is cradled by the banks of the Brunei River. The park is home to a lush garden filled with different floras and faunas that’s open for anyone to enjoy; a fun playground for kids; a running track for fitness and exercise junkies; and a cafe which serves delectable local goodies. Clean and less crowded than other parks, Damuan Park is a family destination – it’s a great place to be if you want to enjoy a relaxing day out with the kids. Don’t forget to bring some extra food and water – a picnic in this park is always a good idea.
