Taman Tugu Kuala Lumpur

Greenovation Design Competition 2017

Park Bench and Gazebo

Khazanah Nasional Berhad with the collaboration of the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (ILAM) is calling the Malaysian public: groups or individuals from various walks of life, to be part of Malaysia’s latest green legacy - the TAMAN TUGU.

Taman Tugu Greenovation Design Competition is an idea based design competition open to all Malaysians. The challenge in this competition is to design innovative benches or gazebos that will be located within the 27 hectares Taman Tugu. These will serve as iconic features of the park, which is second to none.

This competition will be conducted in two phases: shortlisting selection by a panel of judges and the final presentations by selected participants. Several winning benches and gazebo designs will be chosen and constructed within the Park for the public to use. All entries will be documented and may be exhibited for public viewing to generate awareness.


  • To foster creative thinking and to seek creative ideas from Malaysians;

  • To promote design that speaks to the nature and response to the users’ needs;

  • To engage the general public to be part of Malaysia’s green legacy;

  • To promote a sense of ownership and pride among Malaysians;

  • To showcase outstanding designs as landscape features.


Taman Tugu Kuala Lumpur

The Legacy for Future Generations

The Taman Tugu Project is a multi-component not-for-profit corporate social responsibility (“CSR”) initiative led by Khazanah Nasional Berhad in collaboration with Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (“DBKL”) with the support of various stakeholders including Ministry of Federal Territories, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Economic Planning Unit (“EPU”), Public Private Partnership Unit (“UKAS”), Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (“FRIM”), Malaysian Nature Society (“MNS”) and Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (“ILAM”). On an overall basis, up to RM650 million has been set aside for the project covering the following four (4) components:

  1. Taman Tugu Park: A 66-acre urban forest park

  2. Connectors: Connecting the surrounding area with pedestrian-friendly walkways

  3. Khazanah ILMU: Development of a learning and innovation centre

  4. Public Trust: Establishment of a national public trust to own and manage the 66-acre urban forest park, including operations, maintenance, partnerships, and community development up to 2030

The 66-acre urban forest park will offer a fresh public green space for the Malaysian community - to use, to enjoy, to experience, to own. The intent is for the Taman Tugu Park to be an urban forest for various communities. It will complement the beautifully manicured Taman Botani Perdana by allowing people from all walks of life an opportunity to experience a green space which is more rustic and forest like.

The park is envisaged to be a conservatory - preserving and protecting approximately 5,000 ethnic Malaysian rainforest trees, including endemic species. This will provide visitors with a chance to experience and enjoy our green heritage whilst learning about different flora and fauna species from the Malaysian rainforests.

Located next to Tugu Negara, the Taman Tugu park comprises walking and running trails, children’s wet and dry play areas, Malaysian eateries, an events space and a learning and innovation centre. The park will be placed under a trust which has been set-up to own and manage this park as well as potentially other spaces in the future. The trust is entrusted with ensuring the Taman Tugu park is protected into perpetuity as a public green space and maintaining it which includes security of the site and her visitors.
