What to See and Do at Labrador Park
Promenade and the Pill Box
The promenade and the open space behind it at Labrador Park are popular places for taking a walk or even cycling.
There is a one interesting spot here that people overlook. At Pill Box Plaza, behind the toilet facilities (toilet B), there is an original pill box which dates back to World War II.
At the western end of Labrador Park, there is the Labrador Jetty. It is a good spot where you can get out over the water. At the same time, from the Labrador Jetty, you can also view the rocky shore. This rocky shore is one of the reasons why Labrador Park is also a Nature Reserve, one of four in Singapore.
One place that even frequent visitors to Labrador Park may have missed is Dragonfly Pond. Located along Port Road, the main road which leads to the park, this small pond is home to a range of insects like dragonflies.
Explore the Foot Paths on the Hill
Head up to the ruins of Fort Pasir Panjang and try to imagine what it must have been like to be a soldier stationed at the old colonial outpost. There are many different signboards which help to recount the history of the Fort. A display of a gun (with the original gun barrel) is on display at one of the emplacements.
To get immersed into the experience, wander around the many paths that criss cross through the secondary forest on the hill. There is also a War Memorial Plaque at the top of the hill where curious visitors can learn more about the history of the park.
Labrador Park Tunnel Entrance
One of the overlooked spots to visit Fort Pasir Panjang is an entrance to one of the Labrador Park underground tunnels. These tunnels led under the gun emplacements and were where ammunition was stored.
The tunnel entrance can be accessed via a path that lies off the main road lead up to the ruins.
Labrador Park is part of the Southern Ridges in Singapore.
