Labrador Nature Reserve

By: mckenwong on 10 Nov 2011

Located in the southern part of Singapore, the Labrador Nature Reserve has been a gazetted nature reserve since January 2002. Labrador Park combines historical sites with trails through a forest area rich in bird life on Singapore's only sea cliffs and a beachfront park.

Once used as a vantage point by the British in World War II to defend Singapore, the nature reserve provides a panoramic view of the sea and the surrounding vegetation. Thriving with flora and fauna, nature lovers will be pleased with the many different sites in the park, with up to 70 species of birds and 11 types of butterflies have been spotted here.

Relics from World War II, such as the cannon and machine-gun posts, give visitors a taste of the past. For safety reasons, the jetty and rocky shore areas are closed, together with the war tunnels which were discovered in 2001 and are currently under maintenance.

To get there:
Bus services 10, 30 and 143 can be taken from the
HarbourFront bus interchange. Alight at Pasir Panjang Road opposite the PSA Building and walk to the nature reserve via Labrador Villa Road.
