Labrador Park Pt 1

A trail to Labrador Park is not my plan.  I was there by a tail wind and with some historical stories behind.

To get away from the weekend crowd, Labrador Park is one good choice to reclaim a historic and ship theme scenery.  It’s a two-in-one goal! You may like to backpack sunshine and fresh air along while trailing.

Shades and forests are the bodies of this park.  There is one side road leading to Labrador Battery at the entrance located at the south tip of Singapore.  Labrador Battery is seated within the lush Labrador Nature Reserve.

◄It was one of the coastal artillery armed by the British Army in the 19th century.  They defended the western sea and stored ammunitions.►

At the entrance of this leafy road were the wall remains of the old Ford, built around 1886.  It was a “stone-faced” sea wall over 6-foot high, passable only by       ◄infantry.

And now, you can only hear cicadas calling and the little plants sticking their necks out to welcome you.

Whenever you feel confuse and tire, just remember there is a place for you to de-stress and rejuvenate, and that is Labrador Park !
