Taman Jogging 2, which translates to ‘Jogging 2 Park’ in English, is neither the largest or most popular park in Jakarta. But many locals in the Kelapa Gading area do make use of the green space. This is especially true on weekends.

The northwestern corner of Taman Jogging 2 has an outdoor gym with various workout machines that can be used free of charge. They tend to be quite busy with exercisers during Saturday and Sunday mornings when some of the locals don’t have to go into the gym for the day.

Locals love hanging out in Taman Jogging II. This is especially true on weekends when local residents are off work.

There is a really interesting ‘street food’ market along the southern side of Taman Jogging 2. Small vendors are set up there and they sell many of Jakarta’s favorite snacks. Therefore, there is somewhere to refuel and rehydrate after you have completed your workout at the park.

In case you’re wondering, this park has a ‘2’ in its name because there is an adjacent park called Taman Jogging I next door. If you want to add some distance to your run, consider combining both parks (Taman Jogging 1 and Taman Jogging 2) into your workout. They are separated by a road adjacent to Bundaran Kelapa Gading (Kelapa Gading roundabout).  

After a little workout, you can enjoy some refreshments from the various stalls set up at Taman Jogging 2
