August Sketchwalk at Kampong Java Park


Credits: sketch by Debbie Teo

What do we do with disappearing spaces? We go sketch them!

Kampong Java Park is an enclave flanked by the CTE, Bukit Timah Road, and KK Women's and Children's hospital. Opened in 1973, it will be closed permanently from Aug 28 this year to make way for the construction of the future North-South Corridor tunnel. It is a haven of green which has given respite to patients and visitors alike with its large trees and lily-covered pond. Join us to say goodbye.
