The Gurney Bay project, valued at RM247.8 million, is divided into two phases: Priority 1 and Priority 2.

Priority 1, covering 27.70 acres, includes various components such as a children’s play area, skate park, south vantage point viewing deck, public toilets, pedestrian promenade, hawker stalls, retail areas, recreation park, hawker kiosks, open car park space, and south water body reclamation area.

He added that 1,500 trees and 10,000 tree saplings have been planted in Priority 1, and 3,041 trees will be planted in Priority 2.

“Priority 1 has 64 parking lots, and Priority 2 will have 736. We will consider adding more parking lots in Priority 1 once both phases are completed,” Chow said.

During a site visit, Chow expressed his satisfaction with the progress, saying that it was his first visit since the groundbreaking ceremony in 2022.

“I am pleased to witness the development of the Gurney Bay project, an initiative by the Penang government. I hope the people of Penang will embrace this project and enjoy the space with their families,” Chow told Buletin Mutiara during a site visit today.
