I grew up in Kelana Jaya, back when there was no LDP and Giant was only a mom-and-pop store in a shoplot. Today the original Giant store still operates in its original location, next to its more famous (and much bigger) outlet, the Kelana Jaya Giant hypermarket. Many of my friends that I grew up with still reside in Kelana Jaya, although some have moved out and gone on to live in other places, like Klang, Kota Damansara, Kayu Ara.
There are a number of schools in the Kelana Jaya area.
In addition there are two private schools in the area.
There are a number of shopping malls in Kelana Jaya.
In addition there are a number of shops including a range of sundry shops, eateries, laundry shops, etc.
There are several places for recreation in Kelana Jaya.
In addition there are two football clubs here.
