The upcoming Bidadari housing estate became one of the most popular new housing areas when the first batch of Built-To-Order flats was launched in 2015.
The design of the estate capitalised on its existing greenery and rich heritage, and one of its key features is the pedestrianisation of the Old Upper Aljunied Road into a Heritage Walk to better preserve the canopy of mature trees along this road. The Heritage Walk will also incorporate stories of the history of Bidadari and the contributions of prominent figures in the neighbourhood.
The existing memorial garden that acknowledges the former Bidadari Cemetery, along with a number of Singapore’s prominent pioneers, will be integrated into the future Bidadari Park.
In addition, to recreate the sense of tranquillity and capture the memories of the former Alkaff Lake Garden, a new Alkaff Lake will be created in a garden-like setting within the Park for the enjoyment of the Bidadari community.
