Discover Singapore’s Maritime History At Pasir Panjang Park

Immerse In Singapore's Rich Maritime History And Greenery

singapore-history-nature-pasir-panjang-park

The newly-opened Pasir Panjang Park is part of an extensive green network that will be built in Singapore’s west. Pasir Panjang gets its name from the ‘long sandy beach’ in Malay as the area used to be a long stretch of sandy beach. This 450m-stretch has been designed to focus on natural elements reminiscent of the area’s sandy coastline and has two pathways, one for cyclists and the other for foot traffic. The pedestrian footpath is sand-colored, making it appear as if you are walking along a shoreline.

To commemorate the maritime history of the park, horn bollards used at the Tanjong Pagar Terminal since 1972, along with other maritime artifacts, will be displayed in the park. You can also look forward to heritage boards and even a heritage gallery, with stories and old photos contributed by members of the public to pay tribute to Pasir Panjang Park‘s rich heritage!

Little ones who love outdoor play will definitely be delighted to engage in sensory play at the park’s Nature Playgarden. The playgarden is designed for kids aged between 3 to 6 years old and consists of a series of log-based obstacles such as stepping stones and Jacob’s ladder all set on a sandy garden. For the less adventurous ones, the sandpits are perfect for building sandcastles!
