I finally visited the Kota Damansara Community Forest Park yesterday. The Malaysian Nature Society was organizing an environmental program for girl guide brigades from several schools around Kuala Lumpur and Society needed hands. I helped out and in doing so, I fulfilled a promise that I made to myself not too long ago.

When I first saw it, I was impressed. Whether it is a large pond or a small lake, the view is marvelous in the morning with slight mist in the air, with dead tree trunks coming out from the bottom of water bowl. Only the sky was uncooperative by being cloudy but with only a little hint of turquoise.

Closer inspection however brought me disgust. Trash was everywhere. Instead of being protected as the oldest forest reserve in Malaysia, at the moment, it is a mini-dump yard.

    How do you get to the forest park? I’ll be moving there next year insya Allah, great to know a green patch nearby that’s not a golf course ;)
