The process of fermenting foods - to preserve them and to make them more digestible and more nutritious - is as old as humanity. 

This series of urban parks is found in the Medini township. Consisting of Edible Park and Heritage Forest, these parks employ current thinking in urban green spaces and conform to sustainability principles. Edible Park is a 4-acre edible landscape hub for community to develop around new ideas of waste management, green energy, sustainable living, local produce and farm to table. Heritage Forest is a 7-acre wild landscape providing an escape in the city while showcasing our local botanic heritage and re-establishing biodiversity and eco services.

Marina Walk Puteri Harbour offers world-class waterfront living and holiday destination to regional and international tourists. Take a scenic and romantic walk along the harbour, or create longlasting memories with your family at the Sanrio Hello Kitty Town and Thomas Town Theme Parks. There are great dining options to fill your tummy in-between or after a day of activities. If you’re craving for even more, just take one of our shuttle busses that head to Legoland, Johor Premium Outlets, and Mall of Medini just a few minutes away. Need a place to rest and recharge?

Sunway Iskandar's 13-acre park will be drawing in fans of extreme sports by the end of 2018 when its sporting infrastructure is complete. However, X-Park is open to the public and it frequently hosts parties and sporting events so do drop by!

Through a myriad of community-sourced activities and programmes which emphasise sustainability and awareness, Educity Commons presents multiple, bold ways to spend more time offline. Meet people, create stuff and make a difference in the real world at SOS -- an autonomous learning centre which breaks free from academia -- or get active within a green space speckled with public art, fun projects, and a lake.

Housing a bulk of Iskandar Puteri's biggest bamboo installations, Puteri Harbour's park is a must-visit for those who love walking along the city's waterfront. Situated steps away from the international ferry terminal, this park is within reach from some of the region's beach getaways.

Located by Elysia Park Residences, Mahkota Park pays tribute to the royal family of Johor. It showcases an arch topped with a replica of the royal crown and was officiated by the Sultan of Johor in 2015.

This popular meetup spot for local runners is speckled with eye-catching public installations from the Publikart and Konstruk series as well as a fountain. Medini's community food trucks congregate nearby on weekdays too so come grab lunch!
