BANDAR Parklands, a massive township emerging from the southern part of Klang, will offer house buyers the choice of owning homes in an area that is full of parks. 

The township, located 1.2km from the Kesas Highway’s Klang-Banting interchange, will house 10 parks of different themes as an addition to its concept of creating a low-density residential area with abundant greenery. 

The parks have been named Sakura Park, Wetland Park, Berlin Park, Imperial Park, People’s Park, Perdeiza Park, Saffron Park, Riviera Park, Tudor Park and Banyan Park.

Its location, about 10km away from Klang, will be an ideal choice for those seeking peace and tranquillity after a busy and hard day’s work. 

The township will have a lot more to offer to those who are tired of the hustle and bustle of city life. 

WCT Land Bhd, the developer responsible for transforming the quiet Klang South into a massive residential-cum-commercial centre named Bandar Bukit Tinggi 1 and 2, is also the developer of the Parklands project. 

“We want to offer property owners something special, especially after being so successful with our ongoing projects in Bukit Tinggi 1 and 2,” its executive director-cum-chief operating officer Lai Yeng Fock said in an interview. Unlike Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Lai said, the development on the 100ha site was aimed at providing opportunities for people to own homes surrounded by parks. 

He said the people’s park would be the central feature of the 10 parks in the project as it was the largest and located in the middle of the township. 

“The rest of the parks will be developed according to individual themes. The Sakura Park will have the features of a Japanese garden, while the wetlands park will be created with a water-based setting,” he said 

He added that numerous playgrounds, playing fields, basketball and badminton courts would also be built. 

Lai said the project would be provided with 4,300 houses, double-storey terraces, semi-Ds and bungalows, ranging from RM188,000 onwards.

The project will be provided with only about 200 shop lots and there will be no other commercial development. “We designed the project to be like this so that it would remain as a residential area filled with grand landscape, and green plants and trees,” he added.
