The D.R Seenivasagam recreational park comprises of a big area of different sections of things to do. Entering the park you see two fields, one on your left and right. Most of the time these fields are used for football games and other trainings. If you head on straight you can see the children’s playground. Apart from the playground, there is also a cycling area where road signs and traffic lights are put up for a road experience. This cycling track is away from the actual road which is not only safer to ride on but also fun. If you don’t have a bicycle, you can rent one here too.

The park which was opened in the 1950s, was named after the famous lawyer D.R Seenivasagam who was known as a man who gave back much to the Perak people. Taman D.R has continued to be modified throughout the years by the Perak Government. In the 1980s, the Japanese Garden was officially open to public. The garden is a mini version of the garden in Fukuoka, Japan. The trees and rocks are similar to the garden in Japan which is also known as the twin city of Perak.
