BANDAR PUNCAK ALAM, 28 September 2019 – In the thriving township of Shah Alam 2, residents now have the chance to live life to the fullest by embracing a healthier lifestyle, every day. Nestled amongst a green and refreshing environment, IJM Land’s Alam Suria is a meticulously designed residential project that combines the star attractions of living amidst a rejuvenating green, lush atmosphere, being a part of a vibrant and integrated community while being close to major highways such as LATAR and Guthrie Corridor.
A stone’s throw away from major commercial and leisure hotspots, the nature-centric township now gives families the chance to relax, renew and participate in recreational activities alongside friends and neighbours at their very own Central Park. IJM Land Central Park is a well-planned recreational park located in the unique township built especially for the residents of Bandar Puncak Alam. The new Central Park reflects IJM Land’s philosophy of going beyond building homes to building communities. The newly constructed park is all set to become a community hub where residents gather and connect with one another in a stress-free atmosphere.
With over 500 trees and 1290 shrubs planted around the park, visitors are sure to find peace and quiet for those contemplative moments or find ample opportunities to indulge in a variety of activities, such as jogging, cycling, bird watching, Zumba, fitness gatherings and kite flying. Taking a year to complete, and with RM 5 million spent to build the 11-acre park, it is also disabled-friendly with wheelchair ramp accessible to the park.
In conjunction with the newly completed recreational park, IJM Land officially launched Central Park with the Sustainable & Healthy Living event, which drew over 500 people from the Alam Suria and Puncak Alam communities. The launch also created awareness on the importance of sustainability and healthy living through exciting activities, including a tree planting ceremony to commemorate the occasion. Specially invited guests included Puan Rahilah Rahmat, the Yang Dipertua of Kuala Selangor District Council (MDKS), who also officiated the event.
“Quality of life and healthy lifestyles are important aspects for residents who live in urban areas such as Bandar Puncak Alam. While living in a comfortable home is top priority, it is also important that residents have the chance to be outdoors and pursue recreational activities as a family. I would like to congratulate IJM Land for building Central Park, an excellent initiative to inspire residents to lead active and healthy lifestyles, while establishing bonds with their neighbours,” said Puan Rahilah Rahmat.
At the venue, the visitors were able to exchange recyclable items to get a flower plant, which they learnt to replant in a planter box.

At the auditorium, street buskers Anak Seni Warisan entertained the crowd with fun musical numbers throughout the event.
Designed and developed with the well-being of its residents in mind, the 11-acre IJM Land Central Park boasts an array of facilities and features including a children’s play areas, skate park, multipurpose courts, benches and gazebos to encourage residents to lead a healthy and fun lifestyle.
