Historical Development

MyParks was founded on in 2013 by a concerned group with renewed interest of parks and recreation as a field in Malaysia, and formed a new park association.

With a dedicated and committed team led by Dato’ Ismail Ngah, the former Director General of National Landscape Department, a pro-tem meeting was held in December 2013 at the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM), discussing on the formation of a national body on park management.

In the meeting, MyParks, a name given by Dato’ Ismail, was agreed for this new association. Efforts to register MyParks were taken then, after several subsequent meetings held.

Finally, MyParks was registered by the Registrar of Society of Malaysia and established on 6th June 2014.
