This will be integrated with recreation and sports facilities which includes a new sports centre. The site is equivalent to approximately nineteen soccer fields.

Approximately one-fifth (20%) of the site will be set aside as open spaces for recreational and sports uses, and there is 1.2 hectares of central green space in homage to the area’s extensive sporting history.

The ex-boxing gym building will be conserved and transformed into a multi-functional sporting space for the community. This building will be merged with the HDB development.

The multi-storey car park will have a dedicated sports facility on the ground floor.

Among the other amenities are three-generation playgrounds and fitness corners for children to play and elderly to exercise.

The various facilities will be connected by a jogging track.

A childcare centre and commercial shops will also be part of the housing development.

Sadly, the Farrer park Swimming Complex, an iconic feature of that estate will not remain. In its place will be a new sports centre having its own sporting facilities and swimming pool.

Retaining Sporting Identitiy Of Farrer Park

Suggestions have been taken from the Friends of Farrer Park group, members of the heritage community, sports community as well as residents in the area, on retaining the area’s sporting identity.

By revitalizing Farrer Park, new residents will be attracted to make this estate their home, as well as use the park and its sporting facilities. Hence, maintaining the sporting history of Farrer Park while serving the larger community. As much as possible, the character of Farrer Park sporting facilities will be interwoven into the new sports centre.
