KUALA LUMPUR: Federal Territories Minister Datuk Zulhasnan Rafique said the proposed public park is a joint effort between his ministry and the Housing and Local Government Ministry and will be another important landmark and attraction similar to Londons Hyde Park for both locals and tourists.
Itll be a place where KL-ites can have recreational activities in a relaxing atmosphere that is environmentally friendly.
We will always give special importance towards environment conservation efforts and I hope that the KL park will be another activity-based centre which is aligned with the green cause.
I believe that the park will put Kuala Lumpur on the map as one of the top tourist spots in the world for parks just like in many developed countries.
We will slowly be seeing the expansion and redevelopment of many existing parks in Kuala Lumpur so that the public will be able to enjoy the facilities with their families, he said.
Friends of Bukit Kiara, a group that has long supported the idea of keeping the area green, are not jumping for joy until more details are available.
Its chairman Liew Khooi Cheng, 68, said as long as there are no buildings in the park then he was all for it.
