About the Park:

Zhenghua Park provides a &#34Corridor of Discoveries" for its visitors. It aims to meet the rising expectations and recreational needs of singaporeans wanting an improvement to the physical environment and quality of life.

The charming rustic park was built between the PUB pipeline reserve and the Bt Timah Expressway (BKE) amidst Bukit Panjang housing estate. Completed in June 2002, this linear park stretches for about 2.5km along BKE and links Bukit Panjang Park Connector to the Nature Reserves.

Although situated along a major expressway, residents and nature lovers alike will find this park a pleasant retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. Its rugged terrain is a perfect platform for cycling enthusiasts and those wishing for a good hike. Other facilities which include the playground and fitness equipment also provide for the residents a place of relaxation and enjoyment with family and friends.

A variety of forest trees were planted throughout the park with forest giants such as the Shorea displaying a dominant presence with over twenty different species planted. Visitors may occasionally find rubber seeds scattered on the ground upon dispersal from its parent plant Hevea brasiliensis. All these plus pockets of vegetation deliberately left wild, add to the rural charm of the park.
