Read the passage below and answer the questions that follow.
025
New York has Central Park; London Hyde Park while Kuala Lumpur has its own piece of green belt amidst the hustle and bustle of city life. It's an ideal place for a leisurely stroll in a tranquil setting, all without having to leave the city. The Lake Gardens was created by Sir Alfred Venning, who persuaded the ruling government to allow him to turn a swamp land into rambling trails with man-made lakes, spanning 60 hectares. However, as the city expanded, the Lake Gardens reduced in size. However, it is still a sizeable area and boasts of more than just grass and water within its grounds.

For example, the gardens incorporate the National Monument, Bird Park, Hibiscus Garden as well as Malaysia's Parliament House.

Additionally, Carcosa Seri Negara is on a hilltop overlooking the Lake Gardens. Today, the nineteenth-century British colonial mansion has been converted into a exclusive hotel.
