Klang park gets into record book


Bandar Bukit Raja Townpark has the largest recreational park with renewable energy.

Achievements celebrated with opening of 20ha second phase

Developer Sime Darby Property Bhd has made it into the record book thanks to its efforts at Bandar Bukit Raja Townpark.

It was recognised by Malaysia Book of Records for having the largest recreational park with renewable energy, the largest crown structure and the biggest solar-powered sign at the park.

The achievement, which focuses on sustainable energy, is testament to the developer’s pledge to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, referencing the target of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C.

Sime Darby Property group managing director Datuk Azmir Merican said the company was dedicated to reducing its carbon footprint and mitigating the effects of climate change by embracing innovative and sustainable practices within its townships and developments.

“In line with our purpose to be a value multiplier for people, businesses, economies and the planet, we will continue to reimagine public spaces through innovative placemaking initiatives while actively reducing our carbon emissions at our townships and developments over the long term,” he said.

The townpark is also home to a wetland and provides opportunities for communities to engage with nature.

Parkgoers can indulge family-friendly recreational activities such as cycling, jogging and urban farming.

Azmir said he believed placemaking went beyond physical design and involved creating spaces that reflected the values, aspirations, and needs of the community.

“Bandar Bukit Raja Townpark adds vibrancy through nature, iconic structures, state-of-the-art amenities and public spaces that enhance urban vitality and foster community health, happiness and well-being,” he said.
