The 47-hectare Kent Ridge Park is situated in the South-Western part of Singapore. It is located between the National University of Singapore and the Singapore Science Park and the mega Normanton Park condominium project.
Deriving its name from the Duchess and Duke of Kent, the evergreen park is also part of the Singapore Southern Ridges.
Perhaps the most famous historical anecdote regarding Kent Ridge Park belongs to Bukit Chandu, a hill within the park. It is the location of a fierce and defiantly battle where the Malay Regiment defended the hill against the invading Japanese Army during World War 2.
50 years after the war, the National Heritage Board erected a commemorative plague at the site of the battle. The Ministry of Defence permanently placed several artillery and armoured displays as a gesture when it adopted the park as the Army Green Park. A commemorative interpretative centre was also opened as a salute to the bravery of the Malay Regiment.
Due to it rich historical value and biodiversity attractions, the park became a popular destination for families, bird watchers, nature enthusiasts, photographers, students on educational trips, sports enthusiasts.
As part of the attempt to connect the Southern Ridges of Singapore, a 10-kilometre green corridor, a 280-meter long canopy walk was constructed at the northeastern section of the park. The canopy walk is now part of a nature trail that begins from Mount Faber park and ending at the north-western tip of Kent Ridge Park itself.
