Trash in the park lake
Today, my hubby suggested that we should go for an evening walk in the nearby park.
This is an enormous wide park, 1000meter in wide circle.
In the middle of thepark, there is a lake, dirty, filled with trash threwn by passers by and joggers.
This trash came from food packaging, paper cups, kebab sticks , thrown by consumers after consuming the food and drinks.
There are five illegal vendors who had put up stalls near the entrance of the park so that joggers and visitors could buy snacks, cold beverages and sweet cakes after exercised or brisk walk.
There are several large trash bins located at several points around the park but nobody use them because those bins do not have logos or words to signify trash bins.
Furthermore they are tightly lid
I was disgusted and disappointed of these people attitude towards public places.
The moral role they had shown infront of their kids gave them the wrong concept that littering around the park is no big deal.
It is such a shame that the authorities did not take any actions to prevent citizens from littering.
There are signs of no smoking zone and do not leave valueable possesion in the vehicles in case of theft.
However, I did noticed there is a row of big rocks bundled up with wires that look like a barrier to prevent the trash from the other side of the lake from flowing into the cleaned lake.
That is a good move to filter the trash since nobody is willing to swim into the lake to retrieve the trash.
Park is meant for joggers, young and old people who reside around the housing area to exercise at the wide park.
It consist of a playground for kids to play slides, monkey cage to climb, swings and kiddy rides.
It also has several exercise equipments made from steel at several locations and wooden benches for joggers to rest and catch their breath.
Unfortunately, people are turning this beautiful park with a big lake into a dirty unsightly place to visit.
Maybe the authorities should set up a few CCTV cameras to catch the culprits and send summons!
