Youth Park

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Get Active -

Pe­siaran Kuari, Ge­orge Town (www.penang­mu­nic­i­pal­park.com). Many Pe­nang chil­dren spent their child­hood at the Youth Park (Pe­nang Mu­nic­i­pal Park) roller­skat­ing, play­ing foot­ball, learning how to ride a bike or just roam­ing around. Built on a for­mer quarry and spread over 172 acres, the park was set up to pro­vide a space for chil­dren and teenagers to pur­sue out­door ac­tiv­i­ties and sports, and to just have fun. It opened in 1972 and was an im­me­di­ate hit. There’s a tree con­ser­va­tion pro­gramme in place and is one of the few parks which has sep­a­rate skate and graf­fiti sec­tions en­cour­ag­ing teens to do what they love in a safe en­vi­ron­ment. The chil­dren’s play pool and play­ground, skat­ing rink and the ac­ces­si­ble play­ground for chil­dren in wheel­chairs and with spe­cial needs (the first of its kind in Malaysia) are all pop­u­lar ar­eas of the park.
