GAMUDA Land has entered the Malaysia Book of Records for having the country’s tallest cherry blossom tree replica installed at its 619ha Gamuda Cove township.
Gamuda Land recently held a tree-planting ceremony at its Gamuda Cove township in Dengkil, Selangor, to mark the commencement of its 7.3ha rainforest-themed water park which is targeted to open in December 2021.
The water theme park, which is expected to drive the 619ha Gamuda Cove township towards being the catalyst of growth in the Southern Klang Valley, will showcase 18 rides – all of which will be featured in Malaysia for the first time. Around 70% of the water theme park area will be dedicated to green spaces Oiled with tropical trees, shrubs and flora.
Other than the exciting rides and slides, the water theme park also features a 300m lazy river, twin surf beach pool with private cabanas, simulated surfing and interactive waterplays.
Aside from the water theme park, there is also a discovery park nearby that provides two recreational zones – The Adventure Park and the Hangout Village. The Adventure Park allows thrill seekers to enjoy indoor go-carting, mountain biking and aerial climbing through rope courses, while the
Hangout Village offers leisure experiences such as shopping, dining and relaxing by the pool. The discovery park is slated to open in December.
Gamuda Land leisure and hospitality director Aaron Soo says what differentiates the company from other property developers is its strong town-making principles.
“We do not shy away from upfront investment to create value for our customers. Between mindful master-planning and good placemaking, we are creating a hive of tourism activities to drive socio-economic growth in this area.
“From the recently opened interchange to the 24ha central park, the laying of 5G infrastructure, the opening of Discovery Park in December and the work commensuration for the water theme park, we are confident that our customers will benefit from the value being generated for Gamuda Cove,” he says.
Soo adds that Gamuda Land has obtained approval to partner the Ministry of Water, Land and Natural Resources and Selangor state government to jointly manage and operate Paya Indah Wetlands, which is located adjacent to Gamuda Cove.
Paya Indah Wetlands will also be rebranded as Discover Wetlands to promote eco-tourism in the area. Visitors can look forward to new addition of raw
and rustic activities such as cycling, fishing, bird watching, horse riding and bamboo trail walking in a natural pristine and wild setting. There will also be hot air balloons for those who would like to have an aerial view of the wetlands.
Soo is confident that Gamuda Cove will be the key destination for local and international visitors alike.
“Ultimately, it is not just about creating quality products for our customers, but also providing a good experience and sustainable value creation to people who will call this place home, a place where they would want to be a part of, grow up and grow old in,” he says.
