BEING one of the focal cities in the Klang Valley with a population of around two million people, Kuala Lumpur is quite famous for its various tourist locations.
The recreation area is also a choice for city residents and tourists to spend their time enjoying the beauty of nature in addition to doing leisure activities with the family.
For those who love recreational areas full of greenery, IWK Eco Park located in Pantai Dalam is the right and smart choice since this sports and recreation center offers a variety of great experiences and facilities for its visitors.
Managed by the national sewerage company, Indah Water Consortium (IWK) Sdn. Bhd., this park is filled with almost 2,600 trees consisting of ornamental trees, herbs and forests.
The green atmosphere, the beauty of the eyes, also promises a dim view that is enchanting to visitors while refreshing their mind and body.
The sound of rushing water from the waterfall as well as the calm sound of the man-made lake attract visitors either for sightseeing or leisure.
More interestingly, in addition to sports and leisure facilities, this eco-park also provides facilities for holding parties, carnivals, workshops, meetings and family days for corporate companies or government agencies.
For youngsters who want an ‘Instagram’ background, they can have a ‘glam picnic’ here by renting attractive picnic gear for sharing on social media.
Head of IWK’s Corporate Communications Department, Wan Esuriyanti Wan Ahmad said, IWK Eco Park @ Pantai Dalam has been open to the public since last October for recreation as well as holding events and sports.
He said, this park area is located above the Pantai Regional Sewage Treatment Plant 2, which is the first plant that operates underground with the capacity to treat sewage waste water for 1.43 million population equivalents.
“Even though the sewage treatment process is located underground, the upper surface which is around 12 hectares has become a garden which is now filled with flora and fauna and the dimness of forest trees.
“IWK also spent a cost of about RM2 million for the works to upgrade the facilities in this park,” he said.
According to him, IWK is also committed to maintaining greenery because of that, one of its corporate social responsibility activities has included a program to plant forest trees in an area called ‘Khazanah Rimba’ in this park.
“The Khazanah Rimba initiative is a joint venture with Persatuan Pencinta Alam (MNS) through the ‘Adopt a Tree’ campaign, IWK and MNS which received donations from the public to plant about 1,000 forest trees of various species such as Terap, Sentol, Merawan Bunga, Katol, Tampoi , Keruing, Merbau, Belimbing Gunung,” he said.
