Facts of Clementi
Named after Sir Cecil Clementi Smith, the Governor of the Straits Settlement from 1887 to 1893, Clementi is one of the more accessible neighbourhoods in the Western region of Singapore.
It’s hard to imagine but it’s true. Did you know part of Clementi used to be swampland while the other part consisted of kampungs and villages filled with squatter-type homes, cottage industries, backyard trades, and farms?
Located between Dover and Jurong West, today’s Clementi is home to private and HDB residents, shopping malls, specialty stores, food centres, parks, transportation facilities, recreational facilities and more. The three major malls in the area are Clementi Mall, 321 Clementi and West Coast Plaza.
Schools like NUS High School of Mathematics and Science (affiliated to the National University of Singapore, or NUS), Nan Hua High School, Clementi Primary School and the Japanese Supplementary School are nestled in the region, as are tertiary educational institutions such as the National University of Singapore and Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
Fun things to do in Clementi
At the top of the list is the Shuttle Vintage Tram that connects Clementi MRT station to Clementi Park Condominium with designated stops along the way. This is a one quirky joyride you definitely do not want to miss!
Want to see a piece of history in real life? Check out the Old Jurong Line Railway Bridge, a relic in Clementi that exists as one of the illustrious railway’s last remains. While it is closed to the public due to the state it is in, you can still snap pictures of it from the surrounding area.
Foodies are in for a treat as Clementi is famous for the array of food available at Ayer Rajah Food Centre & Market, authentic Burmese food, as well as Chai Ho Satay. The latter offers inexpensive but stellar satay; its store is always fronted with a long queue!
If you love creating art or have little ones in the family, definitely check out Art Friend. The sprawling 13,000 sq.ft Art Friend branch in Clementi Central is the largest one in Singapore. Here, you will be able to get your hands on arts and craft supplies, stationery, gifts, and activity supplies for kids.
Want some fun in the sun with family and friends? Check out West Coast Park, Firefly Park and Clementi Woods Park. For the uninitiated, West Coast Park is a huge family-friendly waterfront park with an adventure play area, a designated kite flying area, marsh garden, fitness area, and even a dog run area. Firefly Park is an environmentally-friendly playground great for the young and young at heart alike. Along West Coast Road next to West Coast Plaza sits Clementi Woods Park, a 12-hectare green haven that doubles as a ‘Learning Park’ for Ngee Ann Polytechnic students to engage in experiential learning via the implementation of projects and ideas in a real park setting.
