The nation of park is being misunderstood nowadays. Due to the garden city concept to promote greenery within busy districts of city, any open spaces are simply labeled as “park”. So it is the task of landscape orchitect to create a quality park in Malaysia, which could equal the spatial and nature qualities like overseas parks such as Central Park, New York and Regent Park, London. The development of gated community also leads the evolution of the park where the early definition of the park as open spaces utilized for public recreation is being limited to resident access. Ap park known as “private gated park” is becoming a new trend. Thus the facilities of such park are designed to accommodate the particular community leisure needs and life style. Even though the park is not open for public, responsive design is still important to encourage interaction among residents. The approach of the designing private park might totally differ with public park where more dramatic effect and solitude could be achieved with higher maintenance and lesser budget limitation. However, breaking the conventional thinking, the luxury and exclusive environment could be created through careful selection of humble material to complement the natural landscape. Hopefully the design of private gated park could bring a fresh image of park within Malaysia, which successfully integrate a prk with its surrounding architecture. A park as part of their home.
