Ong&Ong's new design for an urban park in Singapore 

Located at 17th Kitchener road in Singapore, the existing open space in front of the proposed City Square Mall has an area of approximately 0.45 ha. The proposal of developing this open space into an urban park will drastically change the appearance and usage of this space. The development of the urban park and the mall will complement one another. The urban park will be like a green carpet laid out in front of the mall to welcome its visitors.

The urban park when completed in November 2009, will serve as a green lung for the neighborhood. Conceived as a series of spaces connected by footpaths, these spaces are meant to encourage learning about ecology and the natural environment in an urban oasis that is both fun and didactic for young and old. As they play and walk through the landscape, they learn.

This project further maintains its environmentally-friendly status by introducing the application of “Eco-tiles”-a composite recyclable product that is manufactured with sustainable resources.

The project is designed as a 'green lung' for the neighbourhood, and includes a butterfly garden where people can engage with and learn about wildlife, and a 'living maze'; a green garden where children can roam and learn about plants. A fountain park also provides interactive water-play and acts as a distinctive communal meeting point.

Other features include a 'vertical green', an eco-roof showcase and an 'Eco-wall', where kids can learn hands-on about recycling, reducing and reusing. In line with the "City in a Garden" movement, preservation and integration of 2 huge existing trees is allowed for within the new design.
