Admiralty Park

03 May 2015

Located in Woodlands, Admiralty Park is a regional park situated on hilly terrain with Sungei Cina river running through it, and houses the largest nature area within an urban park. Encompassing a diverse mix of secondary forest, mangrove, riverine and open grassland habitats, and home to more than 100 species of flora and fauna, the park is well loved by nature lovers.  

Situated in the northern part of Singapore, Admiralty Park comprises a 7-ha urban park and a 20-ha nature area that houses rich habitats with amazing biodiversity, including a secondary forest, freshwater swamp, mangrove and grassland. The park also consists of several trails where visitors can discover the different species of flora and fauna in the forest. One can also spot interesting flora like the Putat Kampung Tree and climbers like Hedgehog Rattan, an increasingly rare plant in Singapore.

In line with the National Parks Board’s (NParks) vision to create a City in a Garden, the 27-ha Admiralty Park will begin upgrading works in Q3 2015 and works are scheduled to be completed in late 2016.

Public Engagement for Admiralty Park

NParks invited the public to share their ideas on how to redevelop Admiralty Park earlier in 2012 as part of NParks’ public engagement exercise for the City in a Garden vision. NParks had announced in 2012 that it would be developing Destination Parks to attract Singaproeans from all over the island, and Admiralty Park was identified as one of three Destination Parks to be redeveloped. It demonstrates Singapore’s commitment to make quality spaces for leisure accessible to all segments of the community.

Upgrading works to Admiralty Park

From the ideas and suggestions collated through a series of roadshows, interviews and focus group discussions held during the 2012 public engagement exercise, a common thread that emerged was the public’s appreciation of the fresh air, tranquillity and greenery of Admiralty Park.  There were also suggestions for more recreational family spaces and improved amenities.

In line with these ideas and suggestions, the preliminary concept ideas for Admiralty Park revolve around the themes of play and nature. The park will be developed sensitively to retain the  tranquillity of the nature area, whilst incorporating  play areas and recreational spaces for families and the community. 

The concept ideas include:

  • Playgrounds that cater to different age groups
  • A viewing platform for appreciating nature and birdlife
  • Upgrading of existing fitness corner to multi-generational fitness station at the South entrance
  • Additional park benches and sheltered pavilions for visitors to rest
  • Refurbishing and retrofitting of existing toilets
