During a recent visit to Muara Bungo we spent a leisurely evening at a local park named Taman Pusparagam. The park was previously a soccer field, and at that time it was called Taman Semagor. Though the park is no longer a soccer field, and the name was changed, most of the people in the city still refer to the park by its former name—Taman Semagor.

The park has four rock climbing walls, one huge inflatable attraction for children, as well as a small train. Surrounding the park are numerous food vendors which sell a wide assortment of traditional Indonesian food.

Taman Rekreasi Rengas Condong

(Small Family Park in the City of Muara Bulian)

house on water

This is a small and simple park in the City of Muara Bulian (Jambi Province of Indonesia). It’s an exceptionally nice park for local people who want to spend an hour or two with their children, or a place for teens to hang out. It’s an exceptionally clean park (absence of trash), but with no unique attraction we wouldn’t recommend it for tourists from outside the area.

The park’s exact location can be found by clicking this link.

Below is a video we made of the park.
