GAMUDA Land has entered the Malaysia Book of Records for having the country’s tallest cherry blossom tree replica installed at its 619ha Gamuda Cove township.

The 9.1m replica, also dubbed as a wishing tree with an investment value of around RM60,000, has since attracted hundreds of visitors a day and will continue to be on display at the entrance of Gamuda Cove Experience Gallery until April 4.

“We have been mindful in creating memorable moments for communities, be it in our design and masterplan or through our activities and initiatives. We are honoured that our effort has received accolades.

“It is our hope that through these activities, we can bring people together and grow a sustainable community that will look out for one another, ” said Gamuda Cove general manager Wong Yik Fong.

Gamuda Cove is an integrated township that focuses on empowering its community with a healthy, active, convenient and modern living environment.

Aside from lush greenery with a 24.3ha Central Park comprising three lakes, a water theme park currently under construction, a newly opened entertainment hub known as Discovery Park, and a flyover connecting to Cyberjaya in the pipeline, the township is poised to be Malaysia’s Maxis-enabled 5G township, where homes and public spaces will be equipped with advance technologies and smart features.

The Discovery Park features unique attractions and experiential activities, including the Rainbow City that is inspired by Taiwan’s Rainbow Village with a Malaysian twist; the first-in-South-East-Asia Cove Aerobar; ArcHIVE food hall that offers carefully mixed stalls for a Malaysian experience; and the first-in-Malaysia Barsa Pool Club with the largest saltwater pool.

The public is also invited to participate in Gamuda Land’s “Through Your Lens” photography contest, which runs until April 30 with different monthly themes.

This month, the contest calls for entries that reflect the theme of “town-making”, showcasing iconic features of Gamuda Land’s developments.
