The Armenian Park Improvement Project was launched by YAB Chief Minister of Penang on October 2015. It is one of several catalytic projects in the neighbourhood. Upgrading works include soft landscaping, lighting and plenty of places to sit and relax. It will be shaded by existing trees. The basketball court will be retained, re-orientated and become a multipurpose event space. The Youth Centre will be refurbished in the near future.
The Lebuh Armenian park is one of the few green spaces in the George Town World Heritage Site. In recent years there have been some modifications and improvements to the park and surrounding spaces. In 2012 Think City supported a landscape plan for the existing green space and oversaw the ‘greening’ of nearby Lebuh Carnarvon.
The plans to upgrade Armenian Park has been informed by a number of formal consultative initiatives. Consultation on earlier plans were encompassed in a wider “Greening George Town” programme, while more recent plans have been informed by a baseline survey of neighbourhood residents.
