The park is littered with mostly Palm trees which only adds a visual appeal and the older and more shady Rain trees still preserved within the park. There are also quite a handful of shelters distributed evenly around the park in the even of a downpour.

History

Tiong Bahru Park is a public park between Henderson, Bulit Merah and Lower Delta Road in Singapore. First developed around 1967, it combines with a nursery site in 1977 and in 2000, it was redeveloped to give it an image which suited the theme of ‘Old frame, New images.’

Tiong Bahru Park had been around for a long time even with it’s previous face-lift and the introduction of Gan Eng Seng Secondary next door, taking a large chunk of it’s old land area and introducing a dedicated soccer field. The place started off as left over land from a sewage plant only to converted into a dedicated park a long time back.
