By | June 24, 2019

Raffel Park is a recreational park in Gelugor, Penang. The park was built by BSG Property, about the same time as when Raffel Residence was developed. The design of Raffel Park leverages the elevated nature of the site, creating a landscape that captures the unique hilly characteristics of the Bukit Gambir region. Raffel Park is roughly divided into 3 zones. Zone 1 is the “Active Recreation” zone with a playground for children, multi-purpose field and a car park. Zone 2 is the “Sports Zone” with a 50m sprinting track, a full-sized basketball court and a resting area. Zone 3 is the “Passive Recreation” zone with lots of trees.
