According to a recent news article the area at Grand Old Lady at Canada Hill, a monument and landmark to Miri's First Oil Well, needed a facelift to save it from further deterioration due to neglect.
The site had been neglected so much that weeds had overgrown and some facilities are damaged or vandalized. Lighting are damaged or missing, information boards are barren and paintwork has peeled. More worrying, there is no a single officer to be found to guide tourists, if there are any left.
