A NEW recreational green space in Kuala Lumpur is now available to the public.

The 21.4ha KL East Park, which opened on Feb 18, is a naturally regenerating secondary rainforest and home to rare, endemic species as well as beautiful geological formations.

It is situated within Sime Darby Property’s KL East township.

The park will be free for the public to enjoy until Aug 31, after which an entrance fee will be charged to ensure long-term conservation of the park’s flora and fauna.

The KL East Park offers rewarding nature and geological exploration, given its physical connection to the lush Bukit Tabur and the Klang Gates Quartz Ridge.

Minerals and rocks found in the park carry a rarely observed mix of schist, quartz vein and granite, which makes the biodiverse environment completely exclusive to residents of the township.

The developer said it prioritised placemaking to safeguard biodiversity, promote inclusivity and reimagine spaces for a sustainable future.

The company has planted over 300 species of trees, herbs, shrubs and palms, all noted for their ecological and economic value, in KL East Park.

Strollers may spot some of Malaysia’s most fascinating birds, amphibians, reptiles, butterflies, and beetles that have made the park their sanctuary.

In the first phase of the launch, visitors will have access to 6.9ha of the park.

They can hike along a 2km trail to the lookout point, which has a breathtaking view of Merdeka 118, KLCC Twin Towers and KL Tower.

Sime Darby Property chief operating officer (integrated development) Datuk Mohd Idris Abdullah said the opening of KL East Park was one of the company’s many initiatives to address current environmental challenges and improve urban biodiversity within its townships.

“We at Sime Darby Property are cognisant of the importance of safeguarding the well-being of the people and communities living within our townships and developments,” said Mohd Idris at the launch.

He added: “The company has a strong commitment to developing projects that are people and environmentally friendly, and we’re open to innovative solutions that will fast-track the creation of future living which enhances the quality of life, with respect of nature.”

KL East Park is an extension of Sime Darby Property’s offerings for its property owners at the award-winning The Ridge and The Veo, as well as for future buyers at KL East.

The 61.9ha KL East is accessible via the Middle Ring Road 2, Karak Highway, Duta-Ulu Kelang Express, Kuala Lumpur Outer Ring Road and Ampang-KL Elevated Highway.
