This serene palm lined boulevard belongs to the newly developed Sentul West KL, an exclusive high rise housing and retail project through quaint, old railway land. A thoroughly nature-friendly lifestyle concept with 35acres of private park to indulge, the envy of all weary souled, rat-raced city dwellers.

A couple of Footstool Palms aka Roundleaf Fan Palm (Livistona rotundifolia) and two Carribean Royal Palms (Roystonea olearacea) stood sentry (besides the security guards, of course) at this part of the gateway to the exclusive enclave. Further down, on either side, are rows of the Royal Palms (Roystonea regia).

Unfortunately, taking of photos at this private park, even for non-commercial activities, are not allowed without written permission! So needless to say, I was stopped abruptly in my tracks by their patrolling security personnel.
Until the next time.... other palm species, ciao!
p.s. to self - saw a monitor lizard basking in the sun on grassy ground next to pond (sorry no pic!)
