THE construction of Sibu Foochow Park in Jalan Gambir, Sarawak, is complete and the park is now open to the public.
At the opening of the park, Dudong assemblyman Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing called on residents to take good care of it.
“Residents should act as ‘guardians’ of this park and work together to maintain a clean and tidy environment,” he said in his speech, which was read out by his representative, Datuk Wong Aik Loung.
Tiong, who had donated RM300,000 for the construction of the park, said the public was welcome to make good use of the green space for healthy leisure and sports activities.
He also urged residents to keep the park clean.
“Help clear the rubbish from time to time.
“Do not destroy the original environment and facilities, so that the next user can use all the facilities in the park with peace of mind,” he said.
Tiong, who is Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister, also wanted residents to take the initiative and report any facilities in disrepair to the authorities.
“This way, the park can maintain its green appearance and stay functional, so that it can be enjoyed from generation to generation, and the big trees and pavilions in the park will provide shelter for our next generation,” he said.
