Taman Saujana Hijau: European-style park
Taman Saujana Hijau is a European-style park that is located in Precinct 11 Putrajaya. It is hard to believe that you can visit a wonderful European Park so near the city centre. But it’s true!
The park is different from the usual Putrajaya parks for its pine trees, Cyprus trees, rolling hills, exotic flowers, and wooden fencing. It occupies nearly 47 hectares of land and has three rolling hills and a ridge. The uniqueness of Taman Saujana Hijau is that it has less tropical planting, which makes this park a foreign-like place.
Taman Saujana Hijau is sectioned into three different themed parks. Or you can say it has three hidden parks in its vast area. The names of these three zones are European Garden, Oriental Garden, and English Garden.
Among the three sections, the European Garden is the highest hill, and from here, you can have a spectacular view of Putrajaya. There is a small European style pavilion which is pretty ideal for cycling and jogging. The serene beauty of nature makes this garden a Mediterranean atmosphere.
