Community park to be built in Holland V

A community park will be built in Holland Village by the fourth quarter of next year.

A joint statement from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and the National Parks Board (NParks) said the park would be sited next to the entrance of Holland Village Circle Line (CCL).

It would serve as a new gateway to Holland Village, as well as a green refuge for visitors and residents.

New features such as park furniture and plants would enhance the identity and character of the park.

A series of low walls would be constructed along Holland Avenue to provide some privacy to park users.

Night lighting within the park would further enhance the intimacy of this new public space in the evenings.

Construction is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2011.

The two agencies said the development of the new park would not affect the number of parking lots in Holland Village.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will also be reinstating a car park next to Chip Bee Gardens comprising 45 lots early next year.
