La Promenade’s Family Fun Day is open to all. Activities include bike riding, balloon and cotton candy giveaways, and competitions like cake making with cash prizes.

KUCHING: La Promenade, the 200-acre gated community here, will open to the public for family fun over the New Year’s weekend.

La Promenade’s developer, Hock Seng Lee (HSL), is organising a “Family Fun” promo on Jan 2-3, 9am-5pm.

Activities planned include colouring contests, batik painting, cookies making competitions, bike riding, kite flying, bubble games and giveaways of balloons, cotton candy and popcorn.

Entry is free and contests come with cash prizes. All are welcome.

La Promenade’s latest showhouse, Convertible House by DNA and IDC Architects, will also be open for public viewing.

In a press release, HSL said there would be previews of La Promenade Mall, which fronts the Kuching-Samarahan Expressway.

Eateries like Black Bean Coffee and Tea, and Rice King, are already operating on the mall’s ground floor at “soft launch” capacity.

Opening in January are Choice Supermarket, Hock King Authentic Chicken Rice, NOMS and Taka Patisserie. Recently, HSL also signed up Mr Domus, which will operate the largest restaurant at the new mall.

“This Family Fun event is to show people what a nice living environment La Promenade is. When people visit, they always compliment our landscaping. Lately, we also get a lot of questions on the mall. Soon Jan 2-3, we’re opening up the entire La Promenade for everyone to see,” property development general manager Tay Chiok Kee said.

La Promenade is 200 acres in total, of which 160 acres is gated residences, while 40 acres is lease-only commercial developments.

“La Promenade is a township within a park. It has twice the amount of open spaces compared to other residential developments. It has its own security department manning two-tiers of guard houses. La Promenade also has its own community mall. These three reasons make La Promenade an ideal family environment,” Tay added.

HSL’s leasing manager Trish Lui highlighted the luxury development’s proximity to schools — including an international school and a Chinese medium primary school — two public universities, the Sarawak General Hospital Heart Centre, Sarawak Club’s golf course and Eden On The Park, an integrated aged-care facility.

“La Promenade is equal distance to the airport and city centre. Location aside, this development’s best features are within. For instance, Precinct Luxe residents enjoy their own clubhouse with saltwater pool and fully equipped gym. There are also kilometres upon kilometres of safe walking and bicycle paths along tree-lined streets. Every year we are adding around 100 trees to La Promenade,” Lui said.

She added, HSL, as a multidisciplinary conglomerate, is able to keep all services in-house. She said the landscaping and security teams were all direct employees to ensure consistent high standards. The mall being lease-only also allowed better tenancy mix.
