KUCHING: The state government has approved the development of a nature reserve park in Kuching city.

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said the park is located behind the State Library in Petra Jaya which is under the jurisdiction of Kuching City North Commission (DBKU).

“The area will be planted with local trees and will also be a recreational area, which will be connected to the State Library,” he said when officiating at the Kuching City Day 33rd Anniversary celebration at the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) Complex on Sunday (Aug 1).

He explained that its development was in line with the recently announced Post Covid-19 Development Strategy 2030 where one of the focus areas was on environmental sustainability.

“With this, it will certainly give a green environment for the people in Kuching. At the same time, we will also beautify the main roads in DBKU area.”

He said he was happy to note that Kuching South City Council (MBKS) was also taking the initiative to upgrade the green space in Kenyalang Park area.

“Apart from that, Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) is also in the process of heading towards sustainable development.

“Not long ago, the government also approved a certain allocation to develop the areas in Padawan.

“As such, the whole Kuching area will be developed based on sustainable planning,” said Abang Johari.
