Subang Ria Park

About Subang Ria Park


Subang Ria Park belongs to Sime Darby Properties, the developer of Subang Jaya. The Subang Jaya Municipal Council can upgrade the park with taxpayers’ money, but it can’t, because the land is a private property. It's a catch twenty-two situation here.

Recently Sime Darby Properties has released a press statement of its plan to upgrade Subang Ria Park and hand it back to the residents of Subang Jaya – with a condition that 22% of the park goes to the building of low-density homes.

Subang Jaya residents gave a resounding 'NO' to the proposal of Sime Darby Properties. They are adamant that the park should not be developed as it would mean the loss of its green lung, increase in the population density and traffic jam in this township .

When the properties of Subang Jaya was developed and put on sale in the late '70s, title for the whole 30 hectre land is meant exclusively as a green lung for Subang Jaya. But now the developer has other plan for it. We hope our wish to retain the park for recreational purpose will stand.

a very lovely capture and i hope that the developer does not pull a fast one on the people. green space is very very important for city residents.

Nice shot... It just remind me that there is a lake at Subang Jaya when I were there about 15 years ago. Not sure if it is the same.

I also hope for everyone's sake that it remains a park.

This is a difficult situation. There's a reason why parkland always stays in the hands of the state.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
