Jurong Bird Park site to be returned to JTC in 2025, public to be consulted on site’s use

Jurong Bird Park site to be returned to JTC in 2025, public to be consulted on site’s use. After the bird park relocates to Mandai in 2023, the Jurong Bird Park land will be returned to JTC Corporation in 2025. JTC would engage with Mandai Wildlife Group and other relevant agencies “on the reinstatement of the site” prior to the property’s return, said Minister of State for Trade and Industry Alvin Tan in Parliament on Wednesday. Mr Tan stated that the JTC and the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), as well as other bodies such as the National Parks Board, were considering long-term land use plans for the property. “We’ll consider existing aspects such as the (bird park’s) waterfall and the adjacent Jurong Hill tower,” he added.

“Given the memories and history associated with Jurong Bird Park, we recognize that we would seek public opinion in due time to collaboratively create future Jurong Hill plans.” Mr Tan was responding to a question from Mr Shawn Huang (Jurong GRCquery) regarding what will happen to the park’s animals and plants after it closes on January 3, 2023. Mandai Wildlife Group announced in October that around 3,500 birds will “migrate” between the closure of Jurong Bird Park and the launch of Mandai’s new bird park, Bird Paradise, in the second quarter of 2023. Mr Tan further stated that the new park will hold approximately 50 plant kinds.

Following the park’s closure, The Straits Times stated that heritage supporters want the park and neighboring Jurong Hill to be preserved as recreational green spaces. Apart from the memories linked with the bird park, some who spoke with ST stated that the Jurong Hill area is of national significance due to its role in Singapore’s early industrialization effort, and that iconic built monuments in the area should be preserved. Jurong Bird Park and Jurong Hill Park cover a combined area of around 35ha, which is roughly the size of 50 football fields and is zoned for park usage and administered by JTC.
