History[edit]

Happy Garden was founded in 1963. A big portion of the area, some 162 hectares, was developed by Sim Nam Housing Development Co Sdn Bhd.[citation needed]

Happy Garden sits on former rubber estates. Which explains the amount of insects (such as ants) in the area. Unlike other estates like Petaling Jaya, which were single titled and more organised, the area was fragmented in numerous 0.81-hectare (two-acre) lots, which suited the company's development strategy.[citation needed]

New developments were made in the vicinity to give improved accessibility to the township. One can reach Taman Gembira via several routes, including the Kuala Lumpur–Seremban Expressway, the Shah Alam Expressway, the Puchong–Sungai Besi Highway and the Federal Highway.
