Tiong Bahru Park: Too Crowded

Every morning, Tiong Bahru Park culminates into a buzzing melting pot of joggers alongside various work-out clusters at all corners performing Tai-chi or exercise moves to amplified tunes and cues. These are largely senior citizens in action, reflecting the density of aged residents in Bukit Merah. Such immense positive energy at such vibrant scale is contagious, but rare in the vicinity.

As the number of park users reaches a point of saturation, we can’t help but worry, how is this small park going to sustain our greying numbers set to grow?

Henderson Park: The Problem/Solution

Opposite the bustling ground sits the quaint Henderson Park. Officially launched in 1991, many residents both young and old have developed a sense of belonging and emotional attachment to this doorstep park – it’s collection of facilities, well-aged greenery and natural setting. 

In the Draft Master Plan 2019 released by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) last month however, Henderson Park was slated to make way for a new residential site instead.

In fact, Henderson Park is the solution to taking on the overflowing vitality from neighbouring Tiong Bahru Park, to serve our maturing community.

Save Henderson Park, and Our Collective Memory

Let's save Henderson Park and our collective memory! With public feedback to URA due on 25 April 2019, our time is running out quickly.

Lend us your voice for our engagement with URA, by signing this petition. It’s now, or never.

We thank you for your support!

然而,市区重建局 (URA) 在上个月所发布的2019年发展总蓝图草案中,亨德申公园已不存在,因为所属地段将由新的住宅区取代。
