Location: Bangsar Park, Bangsar, WP KL

History

Bangsar was initially a rubber estate. One suggestion is that it derives its name from Bunge, a Belgian, and Grisar, a Frenchman, said to be the founders of a European company that ran the estate, Bunge-Grisar. The name of this estate was soon localised to Bungsar, and finally Bangsar. It was the nearest to Kuala Lumpur.[1]

It was later developed into a residential area. Bangsar Park was the first area to be developed. Apparently it was the first planned housing estates in Kuala Lumpur. The first houses were built in 1969. Development in Bangsar started once Socfin estates sold the land to private developers. [1]

Bangsar Park was the first residential area to be developed within the area which is now known as Bangsar in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is a much sought after residential and commercial address in the Klang Valley.

It lies about four kilometres southwest of the city centre and is a ten minutes drive by car from the city centre. It is given the postcode of 59000.

The Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur is the local governing authority. It is represented by the Bangsar Park Residents\' Association. Bangsar Park is also part of the Lembah Pantai constituency and its Member of Parliament is Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, since 1995. She is also the Minister of Women, Family and Community Development in the Malaysian cabinet.
