Miri City Fan is a unique fan-shaped urban civic park. This City Fan is designed to create civic consciousness by the embodiment of several symbolic parks. We were the only visitors there. Cleaners were seen sweeping dry leaves with electric blowers. .The garden is well-managed and clean. Stone crafting images are distributed over the compound. The 2 seahorses in the middle of Chinese pond is Miriís mascot.
The Chinese Garden depicts her rich cultural traditions with displays of gazebos, willows, Chinese carps in ponds with a Chinese overhead bridge and a Chinese arch gateway.
Chinese carps in pond
Children like the excitement of feeding fishes, a close contact with natural life of which they could not experience at home from TV or Video. For family with children, remember to bring along some breads. There is no signboard restricting feeding the fishes and little sparrows in the park.
Miriís mascot - In Chinese garden you can see 2 seahorses stone carving, itís Miriís mascot.
The Chinese Garden is planted with weeping willows, again reflecting what is commonly associated with gardens and lakes in China.
Miri City Fan Chinese Garden has a bridge built according to ancient Chinese architecture, similar to the designs of bridges found in China. It has been constructed across a pond with fishes, a feature popular in Chinese courtyards from the olden times and even in Chinese homes today.
Islamic Garden is where my two children enjoyed playing hide and seek. There
is a structure here built to provide shelter for the public and its roof
resembles the domes found on top of mosques.
The Islamic Garden has a well built using mosaic tiles with Islamic designs. The Garden features Islamic arches and motifs.
The main feature of this garden is this mosque dome structure. The stained glass panel has an interesting display of lights at the right angle.
Popular among the locals for evening strolls, jogging and relaxing.
