Woodlands Town Garden

Description

Woodlands Town Garden is an 11 ha park located at Woodlands Centre Road within Woodlands New Town. This is a neighbourhood park catering to nearby residents and consists of playgrounds and a look-out tower. There is also a river flowing through the park.  Part of this river has been enlarged to form a lake within the park. This park is also home to some of Singapore’s nationally endangered mangrove plants, like the Mangrove Apple (Sonneratia caseolaris), Dungun Air (Brownlowia tersa) and Teruntum Bunga Puteh (Lumnitzera racemosa). The nationally vulnerable Nypah (Nypa fruticans) can also found here.
