THE Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas will have a new recreational park to complement its range of facilities up and running before the 30th National Day celebration, said the Assistant Stadium and Sports Complexes Manager yesterday.

The official from Youth and Sports Department, Culture, Youth and Sports ministry said that currently, construction of the new facility is 80 per cent complete.

“The launching of the park will take place once it is completed, hopefully by February. As of now, work on the park is in the process of equipment installation,’’ said Hj Mohd Noor Hj Hamid.

The decision to add a recreation park to the national stadium’s facilities was made in realisation of the public’s rising interest in exercise and leading a healthier lifestyle, said Hj Mohd Noor.

The park is designed to cater for people from all walks of life with three distinctly different areas set up, he added.

“There will be a children’s area, an area for adults and the third area specifically for weight training. The park will provide the public with a family-oriented facility where people will be able to relax at the park after their workouts and unwind before going home,’’ he said.
