Clementi Woods Park is a leafy green space that is often overlooked by many. On its verdant slopes you will find a playground, nature playgarden and a dog run.
Clementi Woods Park principally sits along the West Coast Road.
The Far Western End of the Southern Ridges
The expansive park stretches out across a sloped hillside. If you look at a map, it is geographically the far western end of the Southern Ridges trail. Those who want an extended Southern Ridges walk can start from Clementi Woods, navigate across NUS and connect with the trail at Kent Ridge Park.
Clementi Woods Park is criss-crossed with various bricked and paved paths.
It has an amphitheatre surrounded by lush trees …
… and unique-looking shelters with a woodland-theme for park-goers to take a rest.
Clementi Woods Park Playground and Nature Playgarden
At the centre of the park is a children’s playground.
The Clementi Woods Park Playground is a modest affair. It will satisfy kids who just need a spot to have some fun but it can’t compare with the massive Adventure Playground which is just a stone’s throw away at West Coast Park.
The Clementi Woods Park playground is not the only play spot for kids. At the upper end of the park, there is a nature playgarden. Suitable for young children, this playground makes use of natural elements like logs to encourage children to reconnect with nature.
The Clementi Woods nature play garden is close to the park’s car park, which is accessible via Clementi Road opposite National University of Singapore.
It is also close to the building within the park which used to house a restaurant. It is now a kindergarten.
Clementi Woods Park Dog Run and Allotment Garden
Clementi Woods Park also has a dog run at the western end of the park.
Close to the dog run is a community garden where residents from the nearby flats tend to their gardening plots.
Other recreational activities at the park include a wood ball course.
There is also a little garden display made from bushes at the western end of the park that you can walk through.
If you find yourself working up an appetite from a visit to the park, West Coast Plaza is located a stone’s throw away. Across the street is the neighbourhood market and hawker centre.
