Boardwalks at Marsiling ParkVisitors who wish to get even closer to the water can head to the boardwalks that flirt around Marsiling Park’s pond. In addition to providing a close-up view of flora and fauna around the pond, the boardwalks also provide excellent views of the park’s landscape.

Butterflies in the parkOne fauna that is hard to miss at the park is the butterfly. There are plenty of these pretty winged insects fluttering around the park’s bushes and flowers.
