PETALING JAYA: Just hours after Taman Tasik Tititwangsa was reopened to the public after major development projects were carried out in the area, litterbugs and vandals made their presence felt.
Pictures of rubbish thrown indiscriminately around the park and a vandalised signboard were posted by Noor Fazlina Rosley on her personal Facebook account.
Noor Fazlina, who is also the Project Implementation and Building Maintenance Department senior assistant director (Architect) of Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), wrote that all these happened just five hours after the park was opened to the public yesterday.
She also chided visitors who used bicycles on the jogging paths.
“Sayangi lah kami dan taman2 kami sebagaimana kami sayangi anda semua (Love the local councils and our parks as how we love you all), ” she wrote in her post.
When contacted, Noor Fazlina said DBKL had plans to install CCTVs, loudspeakers and panic buttons for the safety of visitors.
At the time of writing, the Facebook post was shared over 500 times, with many voicing out their displeasure over the vandalism.
Some people also called on the authorities to act on the culprits and install CCTVs in the area.
The Federal Territories Ministry shared the post on its Facebook page, calling the public to take care of the park’s facilities.
“We use the facilities together, we take care of them together, ” it said.
Taman Tasik Titiwangsa was closed in September last year for DBKL to carry out renovation and upgrading works.
The RM99.88mil project covered 20.2ha of the 46.14ha park, and boasts four new features such as a maze garden, the “Banjaran” canopy walkway, a children’s waterplay park and two playgrounds for toddlers and children aged six to 12.
