5 August 2020 (Wednesday) – Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) will open a counter at the Kepong Botanical Gardens (KBG) to process the refund of recreational passes and/or vehicle stickers starting 21 August to 20 September for pass holders who are dissatisfied with the closure of the FRIM main campus until this year end.

Since 1 July, FRIM has reopened KBG and Taman Warisan while the FRIM main campus remains closed until the year-end. Given that some joggers only want to use the main campus and not KBG nor Taman Warisan, FRIM has agreed to allow them to return the card/sticker and get a refund.
