Bukit Mertajam Recreational Forest (GPS: 5.358738, 100.493091), or Hutan Lipur Bukit Mertajam, is a place for the people of Seberang Perai, particularly those staying around Bukit Mertajam, to go for some fresh air and greenery. The air is slightly cooler here, as the recreational forest, which covers 37 hectares, is located 457 meters above sea level.
