THE Bukit Nibong Gila at Sungai Buloh is set to become a recreational park soon.
The owner of the land, Rubber Research Institute of Malaysia (RRI), is planning to provide a jogging track and benches at the hill.
A club house, viewing tower and a square for the public to hold activities would also be built, said Subang MIC division chief N. R. Krishnan.
He said many people were seen walking on jogging along the 1.5m jungle path that led to the peak of the hill from Jalan Sungai Buloh.
“The hill which is surrounded by jungle, fruit and rubber trees has become an attraction for both the young and old who come here to jog or just walk. The breeze is very refreshing,” said Krishnan, who is also Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) councillor.
While welcoming the move by RRI to provide the basic facilities, he said the city council also had a role to play.
He said the hill did not have a signboard to alert the people of its existence.
“I will also ask MBPJ to provide street lighting at the site. The place also needs maintenance and this is where the city council can play a vital role,” he said.
Krishnan said the matter had also been brought to the attention of state executive councillor and Kota Damansara assemblyman Datuk Mokthar Dahalan.
