A Family-Friendly Activity Guide to Labrador Park

A trip to Singapore usually means encounters with gorgeous urban landscapes, impressive high-rise buildings, and fantastic business centres for you and your family to spend an amazing time in. 

However, did you know that the country also has awesome green spaces?

One of the most popular ones is Labrador Park or the Labrador Nature Reserve. There are a ton of things to do here, so we’ll help you navigate this amazing tourist spot!

Things to Know

How to Get There

By Subway: From Changi Airport, you can take the subway going to Labrador Park. From the airport, take the train and pass through Tanah Merah and Paya Lebar stations before getting off Labrador Park MRT Station (1 hour and 4 minutes).

This is a fantastic option, as it is relatively quick and practical, costing only around S$5 one way per person.

By Taxi: Taking a taxi from Changi Airport to the park is the fastest transport option you have with just 23 minutes of travel time. However, it will also be the most expensive choice, as you need to shell out around S$27.

Hailing a taxi is the most convenient option as well, especially if you’re travelling with family or as a large group.

By Shuttle: Changi Airport also has a shuttle that can bring you and the other guests directly to Labrador Park MRT Station. It will only take around 23 minutes (like a taxi) and cost a bit cheaper too (S$20), but there’s a caveat.

Shuttle availability isn’t always guaranteed and you have to check certain select websites to confirm if any scheduled shuttles are going to the park.

By Bus: Lastly, you can take the bus to Labrador Park. 

Just ride the bus from Changi Airport Terminal 1 to Opp Suntec Convention Centre (1 hour and 26 minutes) before transferring to the Promenade Station bus to travel to Alexandra Retail Centre (38 minutes).

From the retail centre, walk for around 5 minutes to the park. While the total trip is the longest among all the options (at around 2 hours and 17 minutes in total), for us, this is the best option if you want to do a bit of sightseeing while going to the park.

Best Time to Visit

Owing to the mostly outdoor and educational activities that you and your family can do at Labrador Park, we highly recommend that you visit this park during Singapore’s dry season, which runs from March to August.

During this period, there is a reduced chance of rain, giving you a better chance of enjoying the park without having to worry about getting soaked.

We also strongly recommend that you visit early in the morning. Aside from the cooler temperatures, bright morning light will let you appreciate the points of interest at Labrador Park (e.g., Dragon’s Teeth Gate and war relics).

What to Do: Activities Offered by Labrador Park Singapore

1. Learn about local history at the Dragon’s Teeth Gate

– From celinesingapore

Referred to by locals as Long Ya Men, the Dragon’s Teeth Gate is composed of chunks of granite previously located at the opening of the Keppel Harbour. It was eventually blown up in the mid-1800s, but a replica has been erected for park guests to enjoy.

Aside from the imposing size of the said replica, there’s some information on the side of the rocks about the maritime history of the country. Of course, you need to grab this opportunity to take photos or selfies with these rocks!

Pro Tip:
There’s also a red beacon if you walk past this replica of the Dragon’s Teeth Gate. This structure is simply awe-inspiring, as it’s an important maritime guide for the country and marks the shortest distance from the mainland to Sentosa! 

2. Marvel at World War II relics

– From revzbbadz

The relics located in Labrador Park are proof of the site’s historical significance. 

Here, you and your family can see how World War II was fought in Singapore. Check out the different war-related structures like underground tunnels and casemate (ammo store).

You can also check out jaw-dropping relics like the machine gun pillbox and the Labrador Battery (two 6-inch guns) strategically placed at the harbour’s entrance.

Pro Tip:
Use the Casemate (ammo store) as a viewing spot for the entire park. It’s located at the highest point of the hill, giving you a great vantage point!

3. Enjoy relaxing physical activities at ComChest Green

– From k.tankk

While most nature parks in Singapore offer more physically challenging activities such as mountain biking and trail hiking, Labrador Nature Reserve has a special area that’s meant for senior citizens and physically challenged individuals.

It’s called ComChest (Community Chest) Green—an extension of the park located in front of the beach. 

Here, older individuals and differently-abled persons can relax and take in the idyllic scenery and enjoy the colourful flora of the area while taking in the calming sea breeze.

Pro Tip:
ComChest Green is meant to be accessible to guests (especially older and differently-abled guests). It’s close to the parking area (just 2 minutes away) and has easy access to Labrador Park MRT station.

4. Take in the views of Rocky Sea Cliff

The Rocky Sea Cliff is the only one of its kind on the Singapore mainland. The gorgeous rock cliffs face the beach. 

You can take in the fantastic views of both the vegetation and the jaw-dropping horizon!

The surrounding greenery is also home to numerous tree species, 11 different kinds of butterflies, and around 70 varieties of birds. You can bring a pair of binoculars and turn this peaceful spot into your very own bird-watching base!

Pro Tip:
You can walk along the coast and even head to the nearby jetty to try your luck at fishing. Just make sure that you bring your own fishing equipment and supplies, as the park doesn’t officially provide these to guests.
