The highest ground in Jurong, this hill is also known by its Malay name Bukit Peropok. In tandem with the development of Jurong New Town, Jurong Town Corporation (JTC) converted Jurong Hill into a park, and a spiralling Lookout Tower was opened in 1970 at the top of the hill. These facilities served as a recreational space for Jurong’s residents.
The hill also houses a Garden of Fame where heads of state and other dignitaries planted trees to commemorate their visits to Jurong Industrial Estate. A total of 30 trees were planted here between 1969 and 1984, before a lack of space saw a new Garden of Fame established on the grounds of Jurong Town Hall.
