Woodlands Park

It was after a rain that we found our way to the newly opened Woodlands Park. We arrived at around 4.30pm when there were still available parking lots. The park is right across from the town of Johor Bahru in Malaysia separated by the narrow strip of sea that is the Straits of Johor. There is a jetty-like structure that protrudes into the sea and it serves as a promenade where people stroll, take photos and enjoy the surroundings. The park is still expanding and other than the promenade, a landscaped area and a playground, we could get to enjoy more amenities in future.

Ice-cream vendors beginning to do a brisk business as the people started streaming into the park.
Have you ever had ice-cream with these colourful bread slices?
Rules as to what could not be done at the promenade.
Chimneys of the Senoko Power Station.
Calm, still water.
Interesting Lamp posts.

Blue sky and white fluffy clouds reflected in the water.
Can you see a migratory bird in the picture?
