Description

Taman Tugu is Kuala Lumpur’s newest public green space: a 66-acre urban forest park located off Jalan Parlimen. The site has a long history: first serving as a residential area for British colonial officers, and after independence, Malaysian government officials and civil servants. After a period of disuse Taman Tugu is now a forest in recovery. 4,000 trees consisting of more than 230 indigenous rainforest species have been reintroduced within the site.

Approximately 4km of forest trails are currently open to the public, with more slated to be opened by early 2020. There are water fountains, toilets shower facilities, surau, and seating areas at the Taman Tugu Nursery, as well as multi-purpose roofed structures that can be rented for events.

A typical session will see the Free Tree Society team leading volunteers through:

  • An introduction to Free Tree Society
  • Guided Jungle Walk featuring talks on conservation of ecosystems and climate
  • Environmental Solutions Talks (water scarcity and rainwater harvesting, composting and waste reduction)
  • Planting Workshop (soil mixing, propagation, and transplanting)
  • Nursery Management (plant care and nursery maintenance)

Volunteer sessions are open to only fully-vaccinated individuals who have “Low Risk” status on MySejahtera.

How much is it? Volunteering sessions for students (kindergarten to university) and members of the public are free. Corporations are charged a minimal fee that goes towards the further development of Taman Tugu under the care of Amanah Warisan Negara (AWAN).
