Second recreational park for Tg Bunga


A second recreational park, the Tanjung Bunga Coastal Park, is set to be officially opened in an area increasingly filled with high-rise condominium towers.

The soft launch of the park will be held on Saturday, 5 June near the Cove.

The first park is up on Pearl Hill while the Coastal Park will be at the illegal land reclamation site next to the Penang Swimming Club. Both these parks are the result of initiatives by members of the Tanjung Bunga Residents Association (since 2006) and the State Assembly member for Tanjung Bunga, Teh Yee Chiu (since 2008).

Good work! We need more such parks all over Penang and in other towns and cities.

The next phase would be to gazette public beaches as recreational beaches to prevent the closing up of beaches by hotels, condominiums and gated communities. Public support is needed for these activities.

I do not see any recreational park next to the Cove. Where is it? As far as I’m concern there is a signboard of new condominium will arise there.

I proud to say that I voted for DAP and I will continue to do so.

Now, you see the difference between those ‘Who Cares’ and those ‘Who Doesn’t Care’.

Hello Kee, Yes, the Botanical Gardens is very close to the hearts of Penangnites. I do have fond memories of Botanical Gardens, especially during the mid to late 70’s where we were able to park our vehicles inside the Gardens at night. Well, this Federal Government is going all out to destroy the Botanical Gardens and anything good in Penang and to put the blame on DAP. Unfortunately, I tell you Kee, sentiments on the ground for DAP in Penang has never been stronger. I was in Butterworth recently, and LGE is extremely popular in the Malay areas. I was… Read more »

See, Pakatan government does think of the welfare of the people whereas BN government is “korek korek” all the way and they are confessing now, the COUNTRY, our beautiful land, MALAYSIA is going bankrupt… sob! sob! sob!
