SIBU: Works on Phase One of Sarawak’s first ever multi-use park Sibu Active Youth Space (SAYS), says Dr Annuar Rapaee.

The Assistant Minister of Education, Science and Technological Research, said the first phase of the RM2.5 million project at Dataran Tun Tuanku Bujang Phase Two (formerly Sibu Town Square Phase Two) houses the longest skate arena in the country and will take an estimated eight months to complete.

“Construction work for the 100-metre skate arena started on June 26. Once completed, it will be the longest skate arena in Malaysia and international competitions can be staged there.

“E-sport competitions can also be organised there as well as the SAYS will be have full WiFi connectivity,” he said.
 
Dr Annuar, who is also Assistant Minister of Local Government and Housing, said SAYS is a youth-specific space complete with purpose-built facilities aimed at connecting members of the local community and also promoting a healthy lifestyle to them.

He also said other facilities available at the multi-use park include parkour, calisthenics, wall climbing and an open theatre, which will be constructed under Phase Two of the project.

“I am very thankful to Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg for approving the allocation when I brought along the youths to see him.”

The Nangka assemblyman said the objective of such park is to create a multi-use park and family space, for people of all ages to enjoy.

“I dedicate this skate plaza for all the youths and in particular, Sibu youths.

“We will make sure that the facility will be fully utilised and become an attraction for the youths,” he said.

He also thanked Sibu Municipal Council (SMC), the implementing agency for the project, for approving the facility to be built at the site.

SAYS is the brainchild of Dr Annuar and the idea for the project was first mooted in July 2018.
