Neglected playground in Taman Setapak

The neglected playground behind Jalan Sampadi and Jalan Cengal received very little attention. It is so hidden, many locals didn’t notice its existence. However, years of neglect caused this place filled with rubbish, overgrown trees and breeding grounds for snakes and mosquitoes.

Madam Tan, whom lives next door had unwelcomed snakes in her house before. Hj Rashid, the neighbour too had complained to city council numerous times about this issue.

Since I attended his requests weeks back, DBKL had since executed trees trimming and clearance of bushes.

Tomorrow, Alam Flora would pickup remainings of debris, and the playground is ready to receive children once again.
