7 Things you can do in KL (or at home) this CMCO weekend: 27 & 28 March 2021
Stay in or head out
1. 50 Acres Xcitements at Central Park
When: 10am - 9pm, 27 & 28 March | 3 & 4 April
Where: Gamuda Gardens Experience Gallery
Bored with the usual weekend activities? Head over to Gamuda Gardens this weekend for a ton of fun within the 810-acre township. The main highlight comes from their recent partnership with 3Q Equestrian Centre for the on-ground horse-riding attraction through the hills. 3Q Equestrian Centre itself has been around since 1990 and is well known as an equestrian training destination and competition venue within South East Asia. They have also produced plenty of top equestrian athletes, so you know you'll be in good hands at Gamuda Gardens too. While you're there, you can also check out Xploria, which hosts a throng of exciting activities such as a Donut Boat ride, Paws Playland pet agility training ground, Big Buck Splash water play park and more. Even better, it's completely pet-friendly, so you can bring the furkids along too.
