Kinta Riverwalk is set to be a new tourist attraction in Ipoh, under Ipoh City Council (MBI)’s RM4-million project to upgrade and beautify the riverside park.
According to the Mayor of Ipoh Dato’ Rumaizi Baharin, Kinta Riverwalk spans around 3.5km from the start (facing Kinta Riverfront Hotel) to the end (facing Cititel Express Hotel).
“The project was approved by the state government, and MBI will commence working on the last 400-m section of the park next week onwards.
“We have plans to launch the park by this year, but everything is subject to the duration of the Movement Control Order (MCO).”
He told reporters after a visit to a section of Kinta Riverwalk today (August 5) along Hadramout Paradise Restaurant, which was recently re-opened to the public.
This followed visits to various development projects around Ipoh by MBI, some of which included Taman Pakatan Jaya and Taman Meru 2B.
