Serangoon Garden is one of the oldest estates on the island, and was built in the 1950s. The estate was built to house the British officers based in Singapore. The roads have British road names.
The estate was upgraded in 2001 as part of the Singapore Government’s plan to improve the older private housing estates in Singapore. Open roadside drains were covered up. It has new streetlights and road signs, and the estate’s parks were also upgraded.
Serangoon Garden Circus was used as one of the locations for the country-wide millennium celebrations.
The food and beverage outlets are located in the estate’s central area. Serangoon Garden Circus is at the centre of the estate. In this vicinity, there are cafés, restaurants, coffee shops, fast food restaurants and a shopping mall.
All the roads radiate from the circus, and the houses are located within walking distance. The estate has a tennis and squash centre at Burghley Drive. At Kensington Park Road, there is a country club known as Serangoon Gardens Country Club. Although the Country Club serves its in-house members, members of the public can also enjoy delicious food such as cantonese cuisine – Swatow Garden – which serves popular Hong Kong Dim Sum and dishes.
