When: 8 March 2009, 8 am
Launch by: YB Teh Yee Cheu, ADUN Tg Bungah and TBRA
Venue: entrance to “Tua Pek Kong” Chinese Temple (top of the hill)

Sponsored by:
Tanjung Bungah Residents’ Association • Malaysian Nature Society • MPPP • Lions Club

Please come and join us to celebrate the launch of a new park in Tanjong Bunga this coming Sunday. The very top of Pearl Hill is State land and will gradually be converted into a recreational park, adding beautiful views and exercise grounds for the many joggers, walkers and climbers in the Tanjong Bunga area.

On this historic day, TBRA is happy to announce the launch of this park by our Assemblyman, YB Teh Yee Cheu, with co-sponsorship by the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), the Lions Club and MPPP. MNS will be able to advise on environmental aspects, the Lions Club will encourage recreational activities and MPPP will oversee the topographical management. YB Liew Chin Tong, member of Parliament, has also promised to be present.

The many high density and high rise developments which have been built in Tanjong Bunga have led to a serious lack of public recreational space or consideration for the natural settings. This is very evident when comparing the new condos with other earlier developments in Hillside and surrounding areas. The earlier housing projects had many small neighborhood parks that serve as play ground for children and areas for relaxation for the adults.

The new park, located at the summit of Pearl Hill, is currently zoned as public open space. It is accessible by road via Puncak Bukit Mutiara. A detailed proposal is being considered by the State Government.
