Taman Tun Sardon is a large working-class neighbourhood of low-cost flats in Gelugor, Penang. It was named after Tun Sardon Jubir, who served as the Yang Di-Pertua Negeri, or Governor, of Penang from 1975 to 1981. Most of the flats at Taman Tun Sardon are five-storey walk-up blocks. They were built in the 1980s.
The main road through the Taman Tun Sardon neighbourhood is Hilir Pemancar. Branching off this main road are the side roads to all the flats.
