This park projects something different about Bintulu
that the other town didn't have. Each town at
moment is encouraged to project its own image and we have
to think very hard to see what can make a town more beautiful,
but you feel different from other town.
I think Bintulu, projecting Tumbina is one of those
things. And in the case of Bintulu itself, when Bintulu
becomes an industrial town, any bit or pieces of open
space, park, recreational facilities, or things like
zoos and botanical garden will make a great difference
to the life of people in Bintulu.
So when BDA planned for Tumbina next to the seaside,
it has got in mind something that can attract a busy
population during weekend and the school children to
come to see the beauty of nature and to enjoy more pleasant
surrounding than what an industrial town can offer in
So I believe this is what makes Tumbina in the setting
of Bintulu, quite unique.
