Walking The River Of Life ~ A River Conservation Project Turned into A Tourist Attractions
Keep Calm Life Flows Like A River. I heard of the River of Life but have no idea where is the location and on this very special day, I got the chance to walk The River of Life, a river conservation project by the Kuala Lumpur City Hall. I arrived around 10 am and managed to see the mist sprayed out of the water covering the river top, beneath the old Masjid Jamek that was built in 1909, quite a nice view to see. Some cyclists enjoying their group rides and just leaving the area as I arrived so I managed to catch some photos of this group as well. I saw an uncle sitting enjoying his morning newspaper reading and the environment so cozy and peaceful. I would just do the same as him if I have a newspaper with me on a beautiful Saturday morning at this place.
This is the River of Life a project that aims to reconnect the city, the river, and the people, launched in 2012 by the Kuala Lumpur City Hall. The Klang River flows through the most densely populated area of the Klang Valley. Over the years due to the rapid development in the city, the river became increasingly polluted and it became a dumping ground that is disconnected from city people's daily lives. The project aims at river cleaning, river master-planning, and beautification with a USD1.3 billion project cost that covers the confluences of three city rivers, with a total area of 781 hectares and 63 hectares of water bodies.
Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure, hope you will like it too, cheers, ainie
