SEMBAWANG HOT SPRING PARK | 2020
Sembawang Hot Spring Park has had an interesting history since the discovery of the hot springs in 1908. It is designed as a park with a gardenesque floral walk from the entrance, and naturalistic planting around the hot water pools area. A large lawn in the middle of the park is anchored by a large Ficus tree and surrounded by fruit trees. Existing drains are redesigned to be naturalised streams flanked with lush planting, and rain gardens are introduced to filter rainwater before discharge. Paths are laid using on-site compacted soil, and edible plants are planted throughout the park. The landscape provides a pleasant garden setting to the hot springs, bringing more accessibility to this historical place.
