An Urban Oasis
Located in the central region of Singapore, Bidadari is well served by the North-East Line and the Circle Line. Known for its rolling landscape and picturesque greenery, Bidadari is envisioned to be a tranquil urban oasis where residents can rest, relax and connect with family and friends.
Staying true to Bidadari’s green origins, there will be a proposed Bidadari Park located at the heart of the Estate to form the new green lung. Within the Bidadari Park, there will be a new Alkaff Lake, to recreate the sense of tranquillity and capture the fond memories of the former Alkaff Lake Garden. A unique Heritage Walk will also be introduced to the estate to bring back the rich heritage of Bidadari.
Complementing the Bidadari Park will be the Bidadari Greenway that traverses from Bartley Road to Upper Serangoon Road. A cycling and pedestrian network has been mapped out, much of which would run through the green corridors, the Bidadari Greenway and the Bidadari Park. Rest spots, commercial and social communal facilities will line the Bidadari Greenway, creating opportunities for more community interaction. Travelling within and out of Bidadari will become more pleasant and convenient.
