Where We Are

The Alliance of River Three works closely with two on-site locations:

Taman Melawati and Mid Valley. For more information on where we are located and directions, read on!

Taman Melawati River Three Park

The Taman Melawati River Three Park is located at Jalan Melawati 5, Taman Melawati, 53100 Kuala Lumpur. It is a community-initiated, designed, built and managed River Conservation, Protection & Rehabilitation Park. It is a collaborative effort between the Alliance of River Three and Friends of Rivers Selangor.

At the Taman Melawati Park, ART! has leveraged the strong community ties in the neighbourhood—the product of a mature neighbourhood with a strong residents’ association. Because the park volunteers are part of the fabric of the local community, and because the park itself is an important community space, there is a strong foundation for continuity of this work. In addition, ART! aims to develop a social enterprise around arts and education—turning the concrete surroundings of the park from a liability into an asset and creating a revenue stream that will sustain the work. 

The long-term aim of ART! in developing parks is to create a narrative that gives a greater purpose to the individual activities. The overarching goal is to make these parks desirable places to visit, creating public access to and connection with the river. In Taman Melawati, this translates into a continuous trail that links several parks along the Taman Melawati stretch of the Klang River; at Mid Valley, a park is being developed into a riverside space for art and education in the heart of the city. These long-term goals provide a concrete vision for their volunteers.

The Mid Valley River Three Park is located on the PJ-Bangsar Bypass between Mid Valley City and KL Eco City. It is a community-initiated, designed, built and managed River Conservation, Protection & Rehabilitation Park. It is a collaborative effort effort between the Alliance of River Three and JPS Wilayah Persekutuan.

Notice how the two river sites are incredibly different? 

The river here is turbid and encased in an unattractive concrete embankment. These features require a very different strategy. The work here began with a discussion on a zero-waste social media group that sparked a major clean-up effort that drew over a hundred volunteers and removed 5 tonnes of trash. Continued placemaking work has relied on volunteers that come from across Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. Well-managed social media plays a key role in drawing volunteers and in engaging visiting shoppers and office workers. This holistic approach toward sustainable development—a “whole of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)” approach that connects environmental conservation with other development needs—is critical to building and mobilising large coalitions for action to localise sustainable development.

OWB = SDG Theme Park.png

1. To complete a fully operational and model riverine park by 2030 or sooner, that is fully rehabilitated (or as close as possible) as the living study.

 

2. To demonstrate how every community can use a place-based approach to solve local issues pro-actively; for instance, biodiversity conservation, riverine restoration, waste management and climate action.

3. To take a look at ART's riverine park (Taman Melawati and Mid Valley River Three Parks) - through heaps of effort, it is a low waste, biodiverse, resilient and protected riverbank and river.

4. To utilise high impact, SDG driven continuous effort. This aids to produce a living site that can be emulated by any Malaysian (individual or organisation). This is attainable through a citizen led, designed, driven and implemented solution to pollution, degradation and environmental threats.

5. To solve environmental and community problems by using S.T.E.A.M, citizen science, collaborative, creative and measurable as well as replicable methodology, principles and practices.
