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]

Taman Gembira sits on former rubber estates. 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 KL-Seremban Highway, the Kesas Highway, the Puchong-Sg Besi Highway and the Federal Highway.
