Bukit Shahbandar Recreation Park
Located 15 kilometers from Bandar Seri Begawan, it covers an area of 234 hectares.

It has a number of beautiful spots worth visiting. Complementing the natural Kerangas Forest are stands of Caribbean Pine and Acacia Mangium trees planted almost twenty years ago.
 
Aside from the usual facilities provided, Bukit Shahbandar Recreation Park boasts fish ponds, a multi-purpose open arena which can be used for top spinning competitions, remote control car racing and other recreational activities are several examples of interesting events carried during the National Day and His Majesty’s birthday celebration.  An interesting feature of the Bukit Shahbandar Recreation Park is the observation tower at the summit of the hill, from which one can savour the panoramic view of the South China Sea and coastline to the north, Bandar Seri Begawan and suburbs to the Southwest, the Istana Nurul Izzah and Jerudong Park to the west, and wide tracts of green land (Kerangas Forests, Belukar Forests and farm lands) elsewhere.

Even before its official opening to the public, the Bukit Shahbandar Recreation Park is a popular destination to visitors, especially during weekends and holidays. An increased volume of patrons to the Bukit Shahbandar Recreation Park is expected to increase with the completion of other facilities and services such as access roads, electricity, water supply and a playground.

Bukit Shahbandar Recreation Park is proud to be the venue for the first Brunei Marathon held in 2005 boasting local and international participants.
