Kiara Park

Just a quick guide for those who have heard about Kiara Park at TTDI (Tmn Tun Dr. Ismail) but have not been there yet. Here is some basic information I would like to share, summarized in the form of satellite view image. You can come here if you want to run around the park, or do some off road trail running, or tackle the torturing Kiara Hill.

You can start with looking up at Google Maps Malaysia with a search text of “Taman Tun Doktor Ismail” or “Kiara Park”, and you will be showed a satellite view or map as below. Zoom further in if you wish to see more details.

For those who are not familiar with PJ area, first easy landmark you can use to start your navigation would be One Utama. Follow the map above, and you can get to Kiara Park. It would take less than 5 minutes to get there by car, from One Utama.

Look for Jalan Abang Haji Openg, and you will find two entrance doors of the Kiara Park. Enter the car park area. And if the car park is full (as it normally does on weekend mornings and evenings), you may park along side Jalan Abang Haji Openg (at your own risk). Somewhere on the east side of the car park area, you can find an off-road trail.

If the off-road trail isn’t sufficient to satisfy your hunger for self-torture (read: good training), you can make your way towards Kiara Hill. From the car park, go southwards, then east, then north (following the green arrows), then you will meet a long inclination or tarmac, where the Kiara Hill tarmac track begins.

Hope this little information helps to clarify something, especially for those who are not familiar with TTDI/PJ area. I used to run here a few times with Kash during our SC KL marathon training (starts from Kiara Park and u-turn at Jln Duta Mosque), also did the off-road trail run once, and a couple of times running up Kiara Hill.

Enjoy!
