The Kuala Selangor Nature Park is located at the foot of Bukit Melawati in Kuala Selangor, about 500m west from the entrance to Bukit Melawati.
Make sure you bring moskito repellant and water on your walk through the park! It takes about 1.5h - 2h to with a easy speed and enough time to take pictures to walk through the park (including the Mangrove Walkway).  At the time of visit some of the facilities were not in the best shape (only one of the 3 watch towers were open, some of the railings of the Mangrove Walkay were broken off, access to mud flats was closed). Still the rusty charm of the park made for an enjoyable nature walk with plenty opportunities to see wildlife such as Silvered Leaf-Monkeys, Macaques, Birds, Mudskippers, Monitor Lizards and others.
