Pasir Panjang gets its name from the ‘long sandy beach’ in Malay, as it used to be a sandy beach that stretches from present day Labrador Nature Reserve to the junction of Clementi and West Coast roads.
Pasir Panjang Park is co-designed and co-created with the community as part of the NParks Friends of the Parks initiative and it will open in phases. Phase 1 from the Pasir Panjang MRT station to the Jalan Pelepah residential estate opened on 4 September 2021.
The park’s main features are the sandy vegetation that is reminiscent of the area’s sandy coastline and the nature playgarden where children can engage in free play and sensory discovery. Also on display are horn bollards that have been used at Tanjong Pagar Terminal since 1972. These mooring bollards, together with several other unique maritime artefacts found in the park, were donated by PSA Singapore.
Pasir Panjang Park is the first park to benefit from this community engagement initiative. It holds significant natural and maritime heritage that can interest stakeholders to reimagine the park to be a vibrant place for the community, to create new bonds and strengthen existing ones, bring people closer to the Port to discover or rediscover Singapore’s natural and maritime heritage, or to just have a place to escape the busy city life.
