Sharing is caring!

Sandwiched between the buildings fronting Leng Kee Road and the Rumah Tinggi hillside behind IKEA Alexandra, Rumah Tinggi Eco Park is a well-hidden green corridor.

Rumah Tinggi Eco ParkThe narrow slither of land was once a KTM railway siding, leading down to the Alexandra Brickworks area. The trains have long since stopped running and in place of the din of railway cars is the quiet serenity of a green park and its children’s playgrounds.

Nature in a Line

The linear Rumah Tinggi Eco Park can be entered either from the housing estate to the rear of IKEA or from Kung Chong Road at the back of Borneo Motors showroom.
