Park Life

23 October 2017

Exploring the various neighbourhood parks in the Klang Valley, we take a look at Malaysia’s favourite past times, manifested through sports and recreation.

When the sun shies away in the evening, throngs of people head out to the fields and parks to play.

A regular neighbourhood park in Malaysia consists of a jogging track, usually encircling a basketball and badminton court. In other parks, you could find futsal courts and skating ramps.

While football remains one of the most common sports played throughout, we can find uncommon ones too, such as sepak takraw, zip lining, and volleyball, with players often forming makeshift courts from the ones that are available to them. Sometimes, all we need is a net, an open space, a desire to win and a hankering for fun.
