FT minister: KL public parks allowed to reopen but no picnics, aerobics and group activities

KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 15):  Public parks in the city will be reopened again but with strict standard operating procedures (SOPs), Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa was reported saying by The Star today.

"This means that group activities, aerobics and picnics cannot be held," he said during a live Facebook media conference today.

City Hall (DBKL) announced two days ago that all the parks under its purview will be closed “until a date to be determined” owing to the enforcement of the movement control order (MCO).

The parks include Taman Botani Perdana, Taman Awam Bukit Kiara, Taman Tasik Titiwangsa (pictured), Taman Tasik Manjalara and Taman Tasik Metropolitan Kepong

"The decision to reopen the park was made after receiving feedback from the public and KL MPs who said the parks' closure was not in line with NSC’s guidelines.

"For example, jogging and cycling are allowed, but where would they go other than the parks," Annuar said.
