I believe it’s the DR Park near to Fair Park area just next to the Sg Kinta. Best green lung in Ipoh, this is the area they used for the Road Safety competition and we used love to cycle around here to emulate we are on the real road…it got plenty of road sign and design like a small township complete with a Shell Petrol Station…definitely one of my childhood favourite area…
I’m pretty sure this is Taman DR. I spent a bit of my school allowance at pinball machines there.
It is Taman D.R. Seenivasagam, although at the time the photo was taken, it would have been called Coronation Park.
I spent many a happy afternoon visiting with my grandad. He would take a bag of bread crumbs to feed the gigantic Koi carps in the fishpond whilst I cycled around the park on the free rental bicycle / tricycle that could be signed out by an adult for a maximum of an hour. This picture of the traffic light really brings back the memories of a a carefree childhood. Thanks.
i always ponteng class with my friends and spent time around taman seenivasagam .at the same time we used to do alot of birdwatching,if you know what i mean ha,ha.ha.
yes remember the days where i took part in the shell road safety campain drive , still hv the old cert .
its DR park, i miss those old days…
Definitely DR Park! Dad used to teach me about traffic rules there on my bicycle. I also remember ‘pumping petrol’ at the station and the humongous slide ahh the good old days!
it’s taman d.r. seenivasagam indeed. the platform/bridgeway where we feed fish are replaced with a new set, made of concrete..its less the excitement we have those days as it is build high above the water..
yes its tmn DR ex coronation park,where we had our traffic games when we were small n where we had our car parking games at night when we were teens.lol. memories haha. should bring back the traffic games but who would go nowadays, better play computer games lol
In the 1960′s, I remember school students used to take part in “SHELL Traffic Games”.
I remember the place as all of your comments. I used to live in the Waller Court next to the park.
I learnt how to ride by queueing to borrow the bicycles.
Yes, I brought my children to feed the fish with my dad too.
Gosh, all these memories come rushing back. Thanks so much for helping me revisit all these places which no longer exist.
We are always pleased to hear that we have rekindled memories. It makes what we do here very worthwhile. Come back soon for a other wealth of great memories.
