Taman Pertanian Sabah, Tenom
I was in sabah from 6 till 10 September 2004 and managed to visit one of the most beautiful site of flora and fauna located at Tenom, Sabah. Hope to be able to visit the park again someday. I wish to share some of the pictures taken during the visit, take note of the rare orchid specis at the park.

BACKGROUND

Taman Pertanian Sabah is part of the 1,000 acres of the Agriculture Research Station, Lagud Sebrang Tenom which is administered and owned by the Agriculture Department of Sabah. It is a complex consisting of the Agriculture Research Station, Seed Production Centre for Cash Crop, Farmers Training Centre and Taman Pertanian Sabah itself. The park sprawled over an area of 500 acres.

The park was first opened to visitors in March 2000, and was officially launched by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Mahathir Mohamad on the 25 March, 2001.

With its rich biodiversity, the park has a magnificent collection for indigenous and introduced plants species. It is also a conservation centre for the native orchids of Borneo. This park would become a heritage for the next generation and this will help to educate people in nature conservation and the preservation of natural rainforest through cultivation of trees, shrubs, plants and flowers.

The lush greenery, multitude species of plants/flowers of endemic to Borneo Island and very rare, panoramic view of the lakes, captivating landscaped gardens provide an excellent base to expand your knowledge and an ideal environment for those who seek peace, quiet and tranquility away from stressed and urban noise. This park also provides a great trekking ground as well as nature walks and jungle activities. The park is blessed with mother nature?s treasures.
