Heritage Fest 2006 presents the Pasir Panjang Heritage Trail

Category : events

Sun 23rd Jul 2006 - As part of Heritage Fest 2006, the Pasir Panjang Heritage Guides invite you on a walk to learn about the ecosystem of Kent Ridge Park, the history of Pasir Panjang Ridge and the fierce and heroic battle that took place there during the war.

We will introduce the distinctive plants of the Adinandra belukar and other native plants like adinandra, tembusu, tiup-tiup and senduduk, and their practical uses. The canopy boardwalk may surprise us with flying dragons, crested green lizards and squirrels. Soaring above us often are sea eagles. Out to see are the south-western islands and the changing Pasir Panjang shoreline is brought alive with the memories of former residents.

Along the route, visitors will note the significant points of the Battle of Pasir Panjang during which a small force of the Malay Regiment valiantly defended the ridge against the invading Japanese Imperial Army. Reflections at Bukit Chandu, our end point, will fill in the pieces of the battle and there the guides leave you to reflect on Singapore's special heritage of heroism.
