Menteng, Central Jakarta
September 5, 2016
Amidst the busy streets of Central Jakarta lies a public heritage park that is best for outdoor activities and relaxation, the Taman Suropati. Situated in Menteng, a sub-district of Central Jakarta, the park offers a great view of nature that is very well-maintained by the government.
Surrounding the park are astonishing collections of sculptures made by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)-based artists. In the morning, especially during the weekends, locals go to the park for an exercise or a morning yoga. In the afternoon, families and pigeons crowd the area, as there are pigeon houses installed at the side pavement of the park. Occasionally, there are also spontaneous presentations from a group of people playing music or conducting aerobics classes, making the park alive from sunrise to sunset.
