The Botanical Garden at Pulau Labuan
was once the island's Government House during the colonial era, but was destroyed during the War. Today, it's a beautiful park landscaped with lush gardens, pergola walks, jogging paths and pretty monuments. Many of the old trees in the park are believed to have been planted by Sir Hugh Low, a colonial secretary during his time in Labuan. Also situated on the park is an overgrown water tank and fancy grave of a foxhound named 'Jim' - the only remnants of the colonial administrative building that once stood here. Free to enter and open from morning till late evening, the park is located about one kilometer away from town.
