About Putrajaya Lake Recreation Centre

Putrajaya Lake Recreation Centre is one of the attractions in Putrajaya, featuring a host of recreational activities and everything nature has to offer. This ecotourism spot has been managed by Marina Putrajaya Sdn Bhd since April 2014.

After opening its doors to the public in 2003, Putrajaya Lake Recreation Centre has been the place to be for an out-of-doors experience for the whole family. Its location right in the heart of Putrajaya means that it is a mere 35 km away from the bustling Kuala Lumpur city centre, perfect for a day out without the hassle of driving too far.

Putrajaya Lake Recreation Centre is located in the Central Wetland, which serves as the secondary reservoir and part of the city’s flood mitigation system. For those who are not familiar with the Putrajaya Wetlands, it is the first constructed wetland in Malaysia and the largest of its kind in the humid tropics. Apart from its designated function and aesthetics, the wetlands have served as a holistic and interconnected ecosystem. Through the years, the wetlands have flourished to be a green haven teeming with flora and fauna.

Within this verdant setting is Putrajaya Lake Recreation Centre, a 76.8-hectare retreat of clean, green outdoor fun. The vast expanse of water set against a background of lush vegetation is blissfully serene for city-dwellers, just what you need to get away from the hustle and bustle and disconnect from the daily stress. This is zen…calling from the very heart of Putrajaya.

At Putrajaya Lake Recreation Centre, there’s fun for everyone. We believe that nobody should be left behind, and we make sure of it. There are enough activities to go around for all ages, both in the water and on land.
