Menteri Besar Perak, Dato’ Seri Dr. Zambry Abdul Kadir, wants Ipoh City Council to upgrade Gunong Lang into a recreational cum tourist spot for both local and foreign visitors. “I’ve asked MBI to find ways to improve the park so it will become a viable tourist attraction,” he told reporters after opening Ipoh City Council Hari Raya get-together at the Gunong Lang Park on September 25. In the past, such events were held at the council swimming pool across Perak Stadium. This year’s gathering witnessed a different theme altogether. Instead of the usual food and cookies spread on tables, this time around it was done ala hawker stalls operated by departmental staff. Zambry took time to interact with the stall minders and tasted the food prepared by the staff. While the invitees ate, the adventurous ones took to the water on boats and mini ferries.
