Bandung Has Lansia Park Too

Visiting Geology Museum and Indonesian Postal Museum was exhausting enough. So I took a rest for a while. From the right yard of Gedung Sate, I crossed Cilaki Street and entered the Lansia Park, still in Bandung.

There were many big old trees there. They shelter Lansia Park’s ground from the heat of the sun. The trees produce the refreshingly air. And this park was a bit silent that day. There were only few people and some students after school. It was just perfect.

You must know, on Sunday morning, Lansia Park is always crowded. There is a market (pasar kaget) in Gasibu, in front of Gedung Sate. There are also many people who do sport in the open field. Diponegoro Street is always very busy at that moment. It makes pollution. So, stay in Lansia Park could be a smart choice for the health sake.

Oh, I haven’t told you why this park is called Lansia Park. Well, it is because this park is often visited by the lansia (lanjut usia or senior people), or it was built for the lansia from the beginning. They do walk or jog there. Also relax themselves, and perhaps enjoy the rest of their life with some friends.

I don’t know how many parks named Lansia Park or Taman Lansia in Indonesia. As I know, Jakarta has such park. Surabaya, too.

However, everyone still can visit Lansia Park, including the young genereation. Like me, of course, and the students I met there.

I just spent a few minutes, sitting down for a while on the bench. Lansia Park is not like Molluken Park. There were no “spooky” things. Yet, my eyes were little annoyed with the rubbish. C’est toujours comme ça!

Suddenly, I felt thirsty and hungry. Before entering the park, I saw the merchant of chicken noodle, baso tahu, baso malang, nasi timbel (rice wrapped by banana leaf, served with fried chicken, tofu and tempeh), chicken soto, or es campur. But, I did not want it all.

I was near Cisangkuy Street. And, there is a café of yoghurt. Cisangkuy Café.

I went there and ordered a strawberry yoghurt. It had been long time I did not drink that beverage. It was midday and I was thirsty. Cool strawberry yoghurt was a heaven’s gift. Mmm … super delicious!

Ok, let’s back home now.

  1. @Brahm: Ada sih dua lagi. Tp nggak terlalu bagus. Emang yg di Surabaya seperti apa? Kalo yg di Bandung sih ya kayak foto di atas.

    @Keisya: Bukan deket lagi. Sebelahan.

  2. Oh iya. Aku pernah lihat di berita liputan ttg kota Surabaya. Banyak tamannya. Ijo2 gitu. Pengen lihat langsung. Tp kapan ya? Ah, kamu juga katanya mau ke Bandung. Kapan?

  3. Sekarang? Mau ngajak buka bareng ya? Oke deh. Sebentar lagi aku berangkat. Jemput aku ya. Dan sediakan makanan yg enak. Aa mau dibawain oleh2 apa dr Bandung? Lansia? 😉

  4. Serius kamu mau ke Bandung? Kalo serius, ngapain aku hrs ke Surabaya dulu & bawain kamu tiket? Curang itu namanya. Kecuali kalo kamu ke Bandung dulu terus ngasih aku tiket buat ke tempatmu. Itu baru adil.
