The Seberang Perai City Council (MBSP) has built a peaceful green area along the sea, called Robina Eco Park, in order to utilize its natural resources, which they hope will stimulate domestic tourism.
MBSP has invested RM1464000 for the park which is better known as Taman Rekreasi Pantai Robina, in upgrading and revitalizing the park by Penang Strait area using luxuriant grass and 548 new plants and as clean energy park lights.
“MBSP has also banned all vehicles from entering the 2.69ha (6.66 acres) park. I hope everyone will follow the rules and take responsibility in helping to preserve the environment here in step with the state government and MBSP’s desire to turn it into a recreation and domestic tourism center.
“With it strategically located about 15km from Butterworth and near the Royal Malaysian Air Force base, it will attract those who want to do some fishing, spend leisure time with the family and see a beautiful sunset,” said Penang Chief Minister, Chow Kon Yeow, at the park launch.
The Eco Park project is also in line with the aim of MBSP to increase green space.
