Located in Woodlands, Admiralty Park is situated on a hilly terrain with Sungei Cina river running through it, and houses the largest nature area within an urban park. The park houses a diverse mix of secondary forest, mangrove, riverine and open grassland habitats, and is home to more than 100 species of flora and fauna.
There are three boardwalks and a 2-km nature trail that connect to the beautiful views of the different ecosystems. The three bridges are excellent spots for closer observation of the river, mangrove and wildlife – two of the boardwalks span over the river Sungei Cina, while the third boardwalk is within the mangrove forest.
Admiralty Park is comparatively empty on weekdays, making it an ideal place for running especially for nature lovers. Runners can loop Admiralty Park trail and then outside of the Park exit via North Entrance, along the Admiralty Road and the Riverside Road, then back to either the West Entrance or South Entrance at Republic Polytechnic. For runners who are looking to run a longer distance, they can also make a loop around the Woodlands Waterfront, which is connected to the Admiralty Park trail.
