PLAY­GROUND SHUNNED BY KIDS

New Straits Times - - News -

The play­ground in Ta­man Sem­bi­lang, Se­berang Jaya, Pe­nang, is shunned by chil­dren in the neigh­bour­hood. Look­ing at the de­plorable con­di­tion, it is no won­der that par­ents bar their kids from fre­quent­ing the only play­ground in the vicin­ity. Stag­nant wa­ter and pud­dles fill the play­ground and rub­bish is strewn all over, al­though the equip­ment looks new. ‘No­body wants to play here. I hope the au­thor­ity would clean up the place so that the chil­dren can re­claim what was once their haunt,’ says a par­ent.
