A nature retreat in the west of Singapore. 

Nothing says “come run here” better than a park with a jogging track, and that’s exactly what Clementi Woods Park offers. The small neighbourhood park is located on the west and is good for a short run on its own, or as an extension to the nearby West Coast Beach. The park’s tree-lined footpaths are amply shaded, making for an ideal running route even in the middle of the day. The slopes and stairs also make this park an ideal spot for hills training.

The park also offers a fitness corner, a children’s playground, and a restaurant. Since 2007, Clementi Woods Park, in conjunction with Ngee Ann Polytechnic, has been serving as an outdoor classroom and laboratory to the institution’s students. This “Learning Park” provides students with “real life experience” learning as they implement ideas and experiments within the park.

You can reach Clementi Woods Park using the park connector:

– Leads West Coast Park via the West Coast Park Connector.
