PLAYGROUND SHUNNED BY KIDS
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.
