Labrador Park, Singapore

This Saturday evening, we decided to get outdoors again and explore more of Singapore. This time we headed towards Labrador Nature and Coastal Walk.

We took the MRT to Labrador Park and from there walked towards the park via Berlayer Creek. It’s a nice boardwalk with mangroves and several other plant varieties.

Berlayer Creek board walk

The board walk opens to the coastal walk. Going left leads to Vivo City and right leads to the park. We headed out right and crossed the dragon’s teeth gate. Also, saw several folks fishing along the edge. It’s a lovely walk according to me where you can see the Keppel harbor in the distance and hear the waves crashing. And even though, it was a Saturday, the place was not too crowded. Further ahead on the same path leads to a series of BBQ pits and picnic benches. I have a mind to come back here with a picnic basket ๐Ÿ™‚

Labrador Coastal Walk

A sloping path next to the bus stop (where only one bus 408 arrives every 25 mins or so) lead to ruins of an old fort, gun emplacements and other ruins built in the 1800s. It was an education exploring the ruins. And hard to imagine that a war ever raged in this very place where everything was so green and peaceful now.

  3. Another good article. You got more photos than I did. Shame the pier is closed nowadays. Anyway, I thought the enclosed jungle areas of Labrador were actually quite scary! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
