Allan's Water is a small lake that sits in a little nook before Jelai Highland Resort. It was turned into a park for recreational activities from a reservoir that fell into disuse over the years. Originally, it was used to collect and supply mountain water for British residents, back in the early days when Fraser's Hill was a colonial hill station. FH Allan, assistant to chief infrastructure engineer FW Mager, designed and constructed the catchment lake named after him today. Surrounding the lake are lush trees and dense shrubs that provide a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. Birds fluttering among the tree tops are common sights, with the occasional squirrel or monkey.
The left side of the entrance leads to a short walkway with two large shelters that extend slightly out into the lake. From these huts, visitors can relax under the shade and feed the colourful fishes which congregate below. Another paved path leads from the right of the entrance to a small bridge which crosses over part of the lake. From here, there is a cemented trail that follows the water's edge for a moderate distance, coming to a stop at the furthest end of the lake. Other than walking around or relaxing, you can rent few small paddle boats from the park attendant stationed at the entrace. Each boat fits a small family - the waters of the lake are calm and you can float about safely, taking in the serenity and scenery before paddling back onshore. If you're looking a nice break from crowded areas on your holiday here, then Allan's Water is the perfect place for small families to enjoy.
