Bidadari URA Master Plan
BIDADARI – A COMMUNITY IN A GARDEN
Bidadari Estate will be developed into a new public housing estate with a distinct character and sense of history. Envisioned as a tranquil urban oasis, the planning of Bidadari Estate will build on the area’s rich heritage, cherished existing green spaces and multiple public transport links to create a garden living environment.
GARDEN LIVING AT BIDADARI
Bidadari Estate is planned as a tranquil urban oasis, where residents can relax and connect with family and friends in a garden-like setting. Envisioned as “A Community in a Garden”, Bidadari Estate will feature a centrally-located 10ha Bidadari Park, which will connect to a Central Green Spine. Bidadari Park is well-connected to the residential estates through pockets of open spaces. Part of the tree-lined Upper Aljunied Road (from Upper Serangoon Road to Vernon Park) will be converted into a heritage walk for pedestrians.
REMINISCING BUILT AND NATURAL HERITAGE
Bidadari Park will capitalise on the existing terrain, retain a cluster of mature Calophyllum inophyllum, evergreen tropical trees, and accommodate a stormwater retention pond. Helping to mitigate flooding problems in the area, the retention pond harks back to the fondly remembered lake in the former Alkaff Gardens in the area. The existing Bidadari Memorial Garden will also be integrated within Bidadari Park.
Bidadari Estate will be pedestrian and cyclist friendly, with seamless connections between transport nodes, the park and commercial developments. To provide for the needs of new and existing residents, Bidadari Estate will feature a wide range of amenities including a new commercial development next to Woodleigh MRT station. A bus interchange, neighbourhood police centre and other community facilities will be located nearby. Other amenities such as places of worship and health and medical care facilities are also planned for the estate.
