Since World War II and earlier periods of time, Labrador Park has been a place that has historical value for Singaporeans. As the British colonial legacy left the island, an old British military base, or a fort, is located here. Even though there was not much war action in this area, the installed war facilities were left unused. Starting from 1951, Labrador Park was one of five planned nature reserves to protect the flora and fauna.
Labrador Nature Reserve, or Labrador Park according to the locals, is a 22-hectare nature reserve that is connected to other open spaces, Southern Ridges. As an enormous park with a rich biodiversity in the southern part of Singapore, it is a home to diverse tree species, 70 kinds of birds, 11 species of butterflies, and the only accessible rocky sea-cliff on the mainland. In addition, Labrador Park is also the location of World War II fort, one of the 11 coastal artillery forts, which was built in 1878 to defend Keppel Harbour. Other historical relics that you can see are artillery pieces, naval gun posts, and fort’s tunnels of World War II.
There are various activities for visitors at Labrador Park, starting from strolling around the beautiful nature of Alexandra Garden Trail, Berlayer Creek Mangrove Trail, Bukit Chermin Boardwalk, Comchest Green, and World War II relics. Also, there are other facilities for visitors such as BBQ pits, playground, car parks, fitness area, pond, and restaurants. Visitors are able to walk, cycle, or scoot on Labrador Park waterfront to Keppel Bay with the Sentosa and passing boats view, as Labrador Park provides a jogging track for visitors to jog around the nature.
Other than being a tourist attraction, Labrador Park is also the location for few ecological projects, such as seagrass monitoring operations and survey on intertidal sponges. The projects were conducted by the government, researchers, and also academicians. As it is a nature reserve space, the visitors should also follow the rules by not littering and do activities that may harm the environment.
