RESIDENTS in Taman Bukit Hijau, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, are appealing for a safer playground for children in their community park.
They complain that the playground is poorly maintained and is in dire need of repairs.
One resident raised concerns about rusty playground equipment that posed a risk to children using it.
Another resident said the deplorable condition of the playground deterred most residents from using the park for recreational purposes.
Both residents expressed hope that the local authority would take swift action to upgrade the playground.
Cheras Wanita MCA chief Heng Sinn Yee visited the park in Taman Bukit Hijau following the residents’ complaints.
Heng agreed that the park needed urgent repairs.
“After receiving complaints from the residents, I visited the park and saw that it was in need of maintenance.
“Residents have proposed several measures to improve the facilities in this residential garden. We will do our best to fulfil them.”
Heng said she had also informed the Kuala Lumpur City Hall about the playground’s condition.
