The dark green area

The dark green area demarcates the 108,300 hectares declared as the Selangor State Park (Taman Negeri Selangor). The Park was declared by the former Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia together with the Chief Minister of Selangor, in August 2005.

As of March 2010, the Selangor State Government has gazetted over 93,000 ha as State Park under the National Forestry Act, Selangor Enactment, with the promise of gazetting the remaining areas in the near future. The area gazetted includes the magnificent Klang Gates Quartz Ridge.

The Selangor State Park is the third largest park in Peninsular Malaysia after Taman Negara and the Royal Belum State Park. It is of critical importance to the residents of Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, as it protects 98% of the water resources for these areas.
