The Landscape and Recreational Department was established on 1st June 2000 when its initial administration staff consist only 4 staff. Its goal is to bring together landscape activities under one administration which was previously under different departments.

Through this approach, landscape activities under MPJBT can be coordinated so that wider landscape development services can be implemented out for the community.

This department is divided into 6 main sections as follows: -
1. Project & Contract Maintenance Section
2. Landscape Plan Section
3. Nursery Section
4. Maintenance Section
5. Cut/Slash Section
6. Completion Section
