The Sabah Agriculture Park houses a diverse species of plants set up in a nicely decorated landscape. Interestingly it is also a conservation centre for the native Orchids of Borneo. On top of that it serves the purpose as a training and education centre for agriculture, horticulture, apiculture, seed production, forestry, fishery and animal husbandry studies. Most visitors will find this place as relaxing but enriching experience.
Some of the areas in the park worth visiting are:

Crop Museum – This is an 8-acre living museum of crop plants where there are some 400 species of plants systematically planted according to their uses
