SABAH

AGRICULTURE PARK

TENOM DISTRICT

 

The Park is a sprawling 500-acre establishment, administered and owned by the Sabah Agriculture Department and is part of the 1,500-acre Lagud Sebrang Agriculture Research Station. The park was officially launched in March 2001 by the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. Home to a myriad of parks, research centres, lakes and farms, the Sabah Agriculture Park is a colourful paradise of flora and fauna. The Park is home to various gardens with the Ornamental Garden being one of the most frequented.

 

A version of nature?s paradise, the garden has 21 mini gardens, such as the Bougainvillea Court, Hibiscus Garden and Lily Glade. The flowers are often in full splendour and there is nothing more memorable than a stroll in the park surrounded by cascading and colourful blooms. Also worth a visit is the Evolution Garden which showcases the different stages of plant evolution from as far as 4.5 billion years ago. The Giant Water Lily (Victoria amazonica), one of the main attractions of the park, is found here. The floating lily is so huge that it can hold objects up to 30kg in weight.

 
 
 

The Native Orchid Centre here is recognised worldwide for its indigenous Borneo Orchid collection and is reputedly to be the largest in this region. It is home to some 400 of 1,500 orchid species found in the island of Borneo, including the rare and endangered Elephant Ear Orchid (Phalaenopsis gigantea). The Bee Centre is a must-visit, having gained the reputation for being one of the best Bee Research Centres in the world. As a testament to this, the centre was the chosen venue for the filming of a BBC Natural History Unit documentary, hosted by world renowned naturalist, Sir David Attenborough. Four out of the nine bee species recorded in the world are found here. Want to learn more about Sabah?s native fruits? The Native Fruit Orchard will introduce you to lesser known fruits such as the Pangi, Takob-Takob and Peruput, unique to this part of the world. The attractions are endless and many visitors even opt to stay overnight at the Park?s hostel in order to fully explore the park. Apart from the numerous gardens, visitors can also enjoy freshwater fishing or drop by the Animal Park. In the evening, cycle around the park, go boating or take a hike along the many trails found here.
