RM1.7mil public park launched in Bandar Tun Razak

Work on creating Taman Kejiranan Ikhlas in Bandar Tun Razak out of vacant land started in 2016.

VACANT land along Lorong Ikhlas 1 in Bandar Tun Razak has been transformed into a public park by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).

Named Taman Kejiranan Ikhlas, it is one of five landscaping projects completed by DBKL last year.

Mayor Datuk Kamarulzaman Mat Salleh said at the launch, “DBKL is committed to creating more green spaces in the city, including planting one million trees in Kuala Lumpur.

“This is a joint effort with various agencies and NGOs.

“We envision having 30 pocket parks in the city by 2030.”

Currently, there are 20 pocket parks in Kuala Lumpur.

The other four landscaping projects completed by DBKL comprised signage and additional walkway to Taman Tasik Danau Kota, Wangsa Maju; tree planting around Cheras; landscaping development at Lot 80638 in Jalan Besar, Kepong, as well as landscape upgrading works at Taman Orkid and Taman Bunga Raya in Lembah Pantai.

Work on the RM1.7mil Taman Kejiranan Ikhlas, which is beside Bandar Tun Razak Kelab Warga Emas, started in 2016.

The one-hectare park has facilities such as a playground, exercise equipment, running track, walkways, seating areas and decorative walls. It is open 24 hours.

The information board stated that prior to its development, it was an abandoned space.

Bandar Tun Razak MP Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who inaugurated the park, said maintaining Taman Kejiranan Ikhlas was every visitor’s responsibility.
