Bring your family to visit Atria Shopping Gallery this weekend and enjoy their Top 5 Best Family Friendly Attractions
In 1982, the foundation stone of what has come to be known as Atria was laid right in the heart of Damansara Jaya. Everyone was mindful of its potential, but no one expected the phenomenon it became.
One of Klang Valley’s most iconic malls, Atria Shopping Gallery is a place where fond memories, stories and bonds are made. During the 80s, Atria was the most happening place in the area. The Piccadilly discotheque was a magnet for teenagers and youths – and for the police, who led several raids on the outlet. Local residents would also have fond memories of Parkson Grand, Parkson Supermarket, Esquire Kitchen, and many other glamorous outlets.
Though the original building was demolished in October 2011, today the shopping mall is bigger and better then ever before. In May 2015, the Atria Shopping Gallery was reopened, designed as a more modern and ritzy shopping destination. Today, its glass clad exterior is an iconic landmark in the Damansara Jaya area.
Every week, Atria Shopping Gallery draws in thousands of locals looking for good food and better shopping. Those of you who are bringing your kids along may be pleased to know that there are plenty of attractions around to keep them occupied. Below are just a few examples.
