Sia Boey Rejuvenation (Phase 2)

Sia Boey is an archaeological park sitting on a heritage conservation site in George Town, Penang that used to house a water basin and a police barrack. The rejuvenation project aims to raise awareness about water management and preservation, and to foster the communities’ appreciation of the town’s tangible and intangible cultural heritage.

Being the only green patch within the cityscape, the park aims to contribute to the ecology through filtering water and air, moderating local microclimate, managing storm water and reducing urban heat island effect. Aside from improving the Prangin Canal’s water flow, the designers also covered the area above the canal with slabs to create a spacious walkway for visitors entering the park from First Avenue Mall.
