Zhenghua Nature Park is located in Bukit Panjang. Skirting the Central Catchment Nature Reserve, the nature park serves as a green buffer for the reserve.
The 13.5 hectare linear Zhenghua Nature Park was completed in 2002 and stretches for about 2.5 km along the BKE, linking the Bukit Panjang Park Connector to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. A 3.8 hectare extension was opened in November 2015, bringing the total area of Zhenghua Nature Park to 17.3 hectares.
The nature park is part of our holistic approach to strengthen the conservation of the biodiversity of our nature reserves. By forming a vital ecological linkage between nature reserves and forested areas in the west like the Western Catchment, it facilitates the safe passage of fauna among green spaces. Such buffers thus function as extensions of the Reserve.
A wide variety of plants was introduced to the extension to provide more opportunities for the community to appreciate biodiversity. As part of habitat enhancement efforts, certain native plant species have been incorporated to provide ecological services to the surrounding fauna. Among these were bird and butterfly-attracting plants such as the Tembusu and Jejawi.
As a result of its linkage to the nature reserve and its diverse species of plants, high biodiversity can be observed in the park. 37 bird species which have been spotted at the park include the Olive-backed Sunbird, Flameback Woodpecker, Pink-necked Green Pigeon, Greater Racket-tailed Drongo and Long-tailed Parakeet. Long-tailed macaques, squirrels, monitor lizards and many others are a common sight in the park.
Facilities in the park include a multi-purpose event lawn, a children’s play area, an exercise station, a pavilion, public toilets, shelters, as well as jogging and cycling tracks.
