Rm200,000 Tanjung Adang Forest City Park Unveiled
GELANG PATAH, 23 June 2019 – Villagers living in the surrounding areas of the Forest City project can now head to the Tanjung Adang Forest City Park for recreation and relaxation.
The beautifully-landscaped 0.81-hectare green lung caters to the residents of nearby villages, as well as tourists who may want to stop for a rest while driving to the popular seafood haunt, Kampung Pendas here.
The handing over of the park bear testimony to CGPV’s commitment in creating values for the Johoreans and supporting the community needs. This is also in line with the National Community Policy initiative under the Housing and Local Government Ministry.
The signing of a plaque, which marked the hand over of the recreation park, was witnessed by State Housing, Communication and Multimedia Committee Chairman YB Dzulkefly Ahmad, who is also the Kota Iskandar assemblyman.
Dzulkefly had reportedly called on developers to take on more community driven projects as this would have a positive impact on the locals.
CGPV was first approached by the Tanjong Adang ketua kampong, En. Mohd Ramzan Johari early this year to make use of the vacant plot of land that also housed a local surau. Since then, approval has been obtained from the relevant authority to build a park with parking lots on the wakaf land.
The local community leader had reached out to CGPV to build a recreational park opposite the SK Tanjung Adang after the developer had successfully revitalised the century-old village school last November.
Construction cost for the park, which began in April this year and included the renovation of the existing surau, came to RM200,000.
CGPV planted trees and installed benches, two gazebos and a jogging track into the landscaping to complement the existing community office and surau.
A Hari Raya Aidilfitri gathering was held in conjunction with the handover ceremony. Those who attended comprised of local villagers and CGPV staff.
In March this year, a gotong-royong event was organised in conjunction with the groundbreaking of the recreation park.
CGPV has to-date contributed more than RM10 million on its corporate social responsibility programmes aimed at enhancing the lives of the people living in the surrounding areas of the project. The company’s CSR programmes are targeting at 3 pillars namely youth development and education, environment awareness and community development.
