The defunct Taman Festival Bali Park located near Sanur at Padang Galak is a blemish of the face of Bali's capital city of Denpasar, rendering one of the City's most picturesque beaches an eyesore. That's the opinion of the Chairman of Commission B of the Denpasar's House of Representatives (DPRD Kota Denpasar), I B Gede Udiyana.
In comments reported in DenPost, Udiyana has joined fellow legislators calling for the Denpasar government to assume control of the abandoned and derelict amusement park and turn it into a public recreation spot.
Admitting that legal title to the land may be unclear as discussions between the original investor and the government continue, Udiyana feels that fact alone should not deter the Denpasar government from assuming at least temporary possession of the park in order to remove what has become an embarrassment to Bali’s capital city. "It's better that the land be used for the public good than merely left idle," explained Udiyana.
Udiyana also thinks a clean up and upgrade of the park that closed in 2000 need not cost large sums of money in order to make the land and remaining buildings useful for "space starved" residents of Bali's capital.
