KAJANG Municipal Council (MPKj) has spent RM144,195 to spruce up Kajang Square, previously known as Kajang Stadium.
The two-month project which kicked off in December last year, was completed by the end of last month.
One of the major works was the building of a wire mesh fence to replace the old wall, and installation of an “I Love Stadium Kajang” sculpture.
MPKj public relations head Kamarul Izlan Sulaiman said some of the recreational facilities were installed about 10 years ago.
“The Landscape and Recreational Department decided to improve all the facilities at once, for the comfort of visitors.
“The scope of work included installation of rubber mat and playground components; washing and painting of integrated playground equipment, benches and outdoor gym equipment; washing of rubber flooring and installation of more fitness equipment.
“Cleaning and painting where needed was also done at the reflexology site, historical wall, clock tower, ‘love corner’ arch and penalty corner.
The stadium, built in the 1970s, was successfully redeveloped into a public square with facilities such as basketball court, children’s playground and a fitness station installed in 2014.
