Secret garden in Damansara Uptown

Maybe the more appropriate title should be Secret gardens in Damansara Uptown as the garden in Uptown sandwiched between Uptown 1, Uptown 2, Uptown 3 and Uptown 5 can be said to consists of many little gardens.

There had been a previous post about it at Park (garden), Waterfall & Koi Pond. However that post did not do justice for this hidden secret garden which very few people, even those who had been working for many years in Uptown, knows about. There were many other small gardens missed out and here we now include them with more photos.

Below are photos taken as we enter via Jalan SS2/39 up the staircase between Uptown 3 (Uptown TH) and Uptown 5 through the many parts of the garden, to the waterfalls and pool, then down the staircase between Uptown 1 and Uptown 2 to Jalan SS21/58:

There are lots of Foot Reflexology shops in Damansara Uptown. But they all will cost money. In the Uptown secret garden, you can take off your shoes and walk on the foot reflexology pebble path (above) for free. It is beside Uptown 1.

Above is the staircase leading up to Uptown Secret Garden from Jalan SS21/58. At the bottom of the staircase is a little "tent" where you will often find people smoking or drivers waiting for their bosses.

This is the end of the little tour of the Damansara Uptown Secret Gardens.
