Labrador Park

Labrador Park is a 16.8 ha reserve situated along Labrador Villa Road off Pasir Panjang Road, and is well-known for its WWII relics and bunkers, as it stood as the bastion on Singapore's Southern coast in the British defence against the Japanese invaders.
There is a history trail for visitors to learn about the historical importance of Labrador Park. It is also known as a good fishing spot, and local anglers may be found along the jetties especially during weekends.
The park overlooks the sea, and visitors can enjoy the park and the beach at the same time. There is also a large variety of flora and fauna that can be found both within Labrador Park and the rocky beach below. Within the park are the Olive Ristorante@Labrador, Villa Raintree Spa and Resort and Villa Seafood Galleria.
