The Bandar Baharu District (Chinese: 万拉峇鲁, once proposed to be renamed as Bandar Crustacea[1]) is a town, district and state assembly constituency at the southernmost end of Kedah, Malaysia. Bandar Baharu is located along the Kedah-PenangPerak border tripoint, 37 km (23 mi) southeast of George Town, Penang's capital city.

Due to its closer proximity to Penang, Bandar Baharu is also part of Greater Penang, Malaysia's second largest conurbation, with the town's logistical needs being met by Penang's well-developed transportation infrastructure.

The Bandar Baharu District Council (Majlis Daerah Bandar Baharu, MDBB) administers the whole Bandar Baharu district. It covers an area as wide as 169.3 km2 and consists of seven sub-districts which are Serdang, Kuala Selama, Sungai Batu, Bagan Samak, Permatang Pasir, Sungai Kecil Ilir and Relau. Serdang, a 20 km drive away from the actual Bandar Baharu town, is the administrative town of Bandar Baharu district. It is the southernmost and second smallest local government area in Kedah.

This park was originally an inactive mine.

The budget was allocated from National Landscaping Department. District council has also received budget from Ministry of Culture, Art and Tourism of Malaysia this year to upgrade present components. This includes building new wakaf, providing picnic tables and chairs, building concrete bridges to link two lakes, pedestrian pathway and decorative lights around the park. Council's party also planned to build rest house and floating restaurant to attract tourist to visit Seri Tasik Park. With all the implemented plans and ideas, Council party hopes that Seri Tasik Park will attract tourist attention to this district in the future.
