About the area's history

Apart from being a quiet, green sanctuary, Kent Ridge Park is a historical site that is gazetted as one of 11 World War II sites in Singapore.

The park is a battle site where Lieutenant Adnan bin Saidi and his platoon faced off against a large Japanese invasion force, Singapore's last stand during World War II.

Previously known as Pasir Panjang Park, it was renamed to honour the visit of the Duchess of Kent and her son, the Duke of Kent in 1952. A plaque commemorates their visit at the junction of Kent Ridge Road and South Buona Vista Road.

Reflections at Bukit Chandu Museum

This museum was converted from a black and white colonial bungalow that housed British army officers. Today, it houses exhibitions which explain the history of Opium Hill and the Malay Regiment that defended the Pasir Panjang area in World War II.

Commemoration Plaque

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II, a plaque was installed at Carpark B.
