IOI Properties unveils 4.05-hectare central park in IOI Resort City

KUALA LUMPUR (June 13): IOI Properties Group Bhd (KL:IOIPG) has officially opened its 4.05-hectare Central Park in IOI Resort City, Putrajaya. 

Nestled adjacent to the Palm Garden Hotel and in close proximity to the 2.5 million-square-foot IOI City Mall, this new park promises to become a vibrant hub for residents and visitors alike.

IOI Resort City’s senior general manager (property management) Ho Kwok Wing described the park as a lifestyle landmark, catering to families, fun-lovers and pet owners, as it offers diverse sporting and waterfront amenities, including a pet-friendly zone with an obstacle course.

“The Central Park is our latest offering, rounding out the recreational and leisure landscape of IOI Resort City.

“We designed it to foster community interaction in a social space, amid serene greenery, scenic lake views and engaging sports amenities," he said in a statement on Thursday.

The park features an open lawn, a playground, a jungle track, a floral garden and various recreational spaces.

Its sporting facilities encourage active lifestyles, including a skate and bike park, as well as courts for basketball, badminton and futsal.

Ho highlighted the park’s development, aligning with IOI Properties’ sustainability goals, provides ecosystem services like climate change mitigation, urban heat island reduction, flood prevention and biodiversity conservation. 

“In line with efforts to reduce carbon footprint and conserve existing plants, 71% of trees in the park have been transplanted within IOI Resort City,” he said, adding that over one-third of the trees planted are vulnerable International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List tree species, such as Dalbergia latifolia, Hopea odorata, and Khaya senegalensis.

He also noted that the park supports wildlife, such as butterflies, dragonflies, reptiles, small mammals, fish, songbirds, waterbirds and raptors.

“For more sustainable operations, the park uses a solar-powered light-emitting diode lighting system.

“IOIPG aspires to conserve the park for a long-term contribution towards [the] United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG),” he said.

The Central Park, managed by IOI Properties, is open to the public, residents and visitors, without charge.

IOI Resort City, spanning 318.89 hectares, is IOI Properties Group’s flagship township development in Putrajaya.

Its latest residential offering, GEMS Residences, includes 676 condominium units developed with Mitsubishi Estate Residence, to blend lifestyle living with community-based care.
