BATU GAJAH, Feb 18 – The Tanjung Tualang Tin Dredge No 5 (TT5) will introduce a new attraction, the Fun Maze Garden, which is expected to be opened to visitors in May.
Menteri Besar Incorporated (MB Inc) chief executive officer Anuar Zainal Abidin said it will feature a South Korean-designed landscape with a potential to attract more visitors to the 82-year old historical site.
“Among the attractions would include maze walls made of granite stone, limestone, plants, mirrors, domes and other design materials of recycled items such as bottles.
“We also want to bring in outside attractions,” he said during the press conference of the Water Rescue Simulation Programme at the site here today.
Also present were the state’s Tourism, Arts and Culture committee chairman Tan Kar Hing and Perak Fire and Rescue Department director Azmi Osman.
Anuar said the garden is suitable for families and students and for events.
The TT5, the last tin dredge standing in the country, has been developed as a tourism spot since 2016 under the MB Inc management.
It has gone through restoration works on its structure, and is being monitored by various agencies, including the Perak Fire and Rescue Department, to ensure safety aspects are taken care of.
MB Inc is also working with investors to upgrade the facilities and services to contribute to the local economy, he said.
