Are you planning for fun activities to do over the weekend? It is an increasing trend for developers to build developments with interesting placemakers. Wonder what a placemaker is? They are attractions that you can visit and they create a sense of community. They can be green spaces, theme parks or anything special and exciting. Here are three fun-filled placemakers with activities suitable for all ages. If you’re just around the corner or have free time, do not miss out on these places!
- Gamuda Cove
Situated right in Southern Klang Valley, Gamuda Land is developing the township of Gamuda Cove. The entire development is packed with activities, so one weekend might not be enough to explore it all.
Nature enthusiasts can head to the Paya Indah Discovery Wetland Centre at the edge of Gamuda Cove. A safari car will take you on a wild ride into the wetlands. You may catch sight of some hippos and crocodiles on your adventure. If you want to exercise, there are cycling and trekking trails as well.
There is also the Discovery Park, where leisure meets adventure. With eight activities, you can cycle, go for an off-trail bike ride or an obstacle course. Alternatively, you can have a drink at 35m in the air with Cove Aerobar and enjoy panoramic views.
Want to visit a theme park and have some splashing fun? Expected to complete at the end of this year, Southeast Asia’s largest rainforest theme park, Splashmania, is right in the middle of Gamuda Cove. There are 39 exhilarating rides along with huge water slides and a giant pirate ship.

A bustling new development in Seremban, Bandar Sri Sendaya by Matrix Concepts has the largest X Park venue in Negeri Sembilan and a huge green park.
