Bali to Build More Parks
GIANYAR ~ The authorities have announced plans to constrict parks imbued with local characteristics of each municipality or city in order to preserve culture, traditions and rare flora.
The program would be introduced gradually as part of an effort to turn Bali into a â€œpark island,â€ Sudarsa, head of Gianyarâ€™s Environment Office, said here.
Gianyar, home of Baliâ€™s arts and culture and located 20 kilometers to the east of Denpasar, has built parks with local characteristics as a habitat for flora and functional green spaces for people to enjoy, he said.
Parks in the city decorated with sculptures of characters from wayang stories needed to be spread to other areas, Sudarsa said, adding that rare plants would also be part of the initiative.
