The Sungai Besi Eco Park (TERSB), which is set to become a Klang Valley destination for recreational and tourism activities, is scheduled to open in October.


Located within the Sungai Besi Forest Reserve, it is 70 per cent ready with the focus now on the development of an arboretum which will be planted with native trees – including fruit trees -- herbs, orchids and more to make TERSB a learning centre.

“TERSB is a lowland dipterocarp forest that has continued to exist in a concrete jungle. It still holds importance for its biological diversity and for continuing to support a variety of flora and fauna,” Federal Territory Forestry director, Mohd Hafiz Hamzah, told Bernama.

He said that academics and students can use it for forest research because it has a collection of flora that is unique but threatened because of its location in Kuala Lumpur.

Mohd Hafiz said the building of an entry road, parking lot, public toilets and other public conveniences are already in progress.

There are currently 117 eco-parks in the country being managed by the Peninsular Malaysia Forestry Department.
