TWO parks and a sports court in the Subang Jaya constituency have been upgraded at a cost of almost RM60,000.
Allocation for the repair works came from Subang Jaya assemblyman Michelle Ng’s office.
A park at Jalan USJ 3/4P in USJ 3/4, Subang Jaya, underwent repairs that cost RM19,995.
These included installing two sets of playground equipment, cleaning and repainting existing equipment, replacing five wooden benches with new terrazzo ones, repairing an existing footpath, installing handrails for senior citizens and replanting grass.
Kawasan Rukun Tetangga (KRT) USJ 3/4 chairman Marcus Loh said in addition to the upgrades, the park also benefited from a residents’ crowdfunding initiative.
“We raised about RM1,100, which went towards purchasing new gym equipment and refurbishing some of the existing gym equipment.
The gym equipment is kept at the KRT cabin located at one end of the park.
“The cabin also has a community garden, ” he said.
Loh added that KRT USJ 3/4 regularly organised activities among the neighbourhood’s 342 households.
“We expect more children and teenagers to use the park once the conditional movement control order is lifted, ” he said.
At the park on Jalan PJS 7/7, Bandar Sunway, RM19,980 was spent to replace an old and damaged pedestrian footpath with a concrete one measuring 110m long and 1.5m wide.
The third project saw the installation of floodlights at the USJ 1 Sports Arena, specifically at the sepak takraw courts, which cost about RM19,990.“Before this, the existing floodlights lit only one court, ” said Ng in a statement.
