This paper explores local population’s perceptions of the development of the Bukit Jalil area after the 1998 Kuala Lumpur Commonwealth Games. The work on which this study is based is important because it provides a fundamental insight for the local government in analysing the impact the Games have had on the surrounding area. It is already known that mega‐events may reap huge benefits or incur great losses to the host destination, and case studies like such will help cities be better equipped with the necessary knowledge in ensuring that the events are beneficial for the area. Despite this, this field remains rather unexplored. This research employs a qualitative approach, with semistructured interviews with residents staying near the stadium area to understand their perception of the urban change in the area after the Games. To establish rapport and a relationship of trust was essential to collect the data. The study finds that while the local residents generally acknowledge the positive development in terms of public infrastructure as part of the Games’ legacy, they also express some concerns over some urban regeneration errors, particularly social issues like the increase in crime rate and the level of exclusion they felt from the Games. Though not conclusive, this study creates a basic understanding and foundation for further studies to be conducted regarding this topic.
