Come 25 January, Taman Warisan Negeri Selangor (TWNS) will be celebrating it's 6th birthday.
Over 85,000 ha of largely contiguous forest along the eastern border of Selangor, was gazetted by the Selangor state government as a 'state park' on 25 Jan 2007. The remaining areas were gazetted after 2010.
The Park, stretching from Hulu Selangor at the northern tip of Selangor State, through Gombak, down to Hulu Langat in the south, is one of the few sizeable, multi-use forested areas in close proximity to a major urban centre in the world.
During the weekends, the Park is a hub of activity as thousands of visitors flock to the popular recreational spots to enjoy various activities including swimming in the many rivers that bisect the Park, trekking, bird watching, cycling and photography.
In conjunction with the Park’s 6th birthday, join us as we take a trip down memory lane...how the Park was established and why it is so important to us all. We would love to hear some of your stories on the Park, too.
