"Butterworth - Padang (Town Field)" Butterworth Favorite Tip by SLLiew
Butterworth Favorites: 7 reviews and 10 photos
Favorite thing: Like all typical towns in Malaysia, the British town layout has a Padang (Town field) where important events were held like band marching as well as cricket games. Around the Butterworth Padang were important buildings like hospital, post office, police station and town council. The field also become an important sports arena for soccer, field hockey and netball.
But times have changed, many of these town institutions have moved to bigger buildings and the field has become smaller with addition of other buildings. This scenario is repeated in many towns in Malaysia as the role of the Padang as an important social gathering location has been drastically reduced as folks prefer indoor halls and stadiums for similar type of gatherings.
