          Abstract

          The study aims to investigate the potential of vegetation design as a microclimatic modifier at KLCC park. The scope of the study is to determine the impact of vegetation types towards thermal comfort. The different morphological characteristics of trees, shrubs and groundcover, and its planting configurations could be the best indicator to determine the outdoor thermal satisfaction among users. The results indicate the sampling points with various types of vegetation including hardy canopied trees, dense shrubs and groundcovers recorded lowest air temperature, and more visitors were comfortable doing activities in that area compared to points with fewer layers of vegetation.
