This leisure park was the brainchild of a Bugis by the name of Haji Mangkana who migrated from Makassar to Samarinda to go into the prawn export business.

Not surprising as most Bugis are adventurous and industrious leaving their marks wherever they migrated to. There are many similar success stories untold in both Singapore and Malaysia of these Sulawesi seafarers famous since the 18th century. The park was about 90% complete when we visited. The first structure to greet visitors was a very fine crafted house built with the Bugis architecture. Each and every corner of this house was a piece of art carved from either belian or teak wood.
