Landscape Aesthetic Values: The distinct architecture of Park Colonial is complemented by the lush landscaping that have been carefully curated to enliven the entire compound.
A well-shaded garden of rain trees and palm trees over a ground-scape of manicured bushes, basic lawn grass, tarmac and gravel.
With the Colonial Club taking centerstage, and the 50-metre-long cantilevered lap pool looking like a plateau of water that overhangs majestically4 onto the undulating and sweeping contours of the landscape below, offering a stunning view of the islands of water, trees and lawn in the horizon.
Meanwhile, the magnificent grounds with lush landscaping are full of character, offering sensuous journeys through a palette of lawn decks on one end and dense vegetation against the sound of flowing water on the other.
Beautiful light-filled pavilions surrounded by lush greenery allow residents to have get-togethers with friends and family.
The experience of time and day passing through the evolving of the landscape, much as how we revel in the nostalgia of the colonial era, is celebrated here in the spirit of adventure.
Social & Cultural Values: Park Colonial’s locational attributes of being right beside Woodleigh MRT, the Stamford American International School and the future Woodleigh Mall makes it an outright winner as a home where you are accessible to almost anywhere and anything.
Couple that with its internal attributes of well-designed homes, lush landscapes, expansive open areas and pools, a grand function room and numerous pavilions for meet-ups and gatherings.
Park Colonial is truly a development designed with the intention to be the ideal home for anyone. A home where residents are encouraged to interact not just with their neighbors, family and friends but also be one with nature.
Liveability & Wellness: With acres of lush landscaping within Park Colonial, residents are within nature at every turn.
From evening walks along the Colonial Boulevard to picnics at The Courtyard or just chilling in one of the many pavilions dotting the development. Residents are transported to a sanctuary where they can live, work, play, rest and recharge.
There is even a herb garden where residents can grow and cultivate herbs.
Home-coming is no longer mundane but something to look forward to.

Design Concept: Colonial-inspired modern living at Park Colonial. The colonial era is one that was full of grandeur, elegance and style.
Park Colonial takes its inspiration from the quaint but stately estate of nearby Woodleigh Park, one of Singapore’s preserved colonial quarters.
At Woodleigh Park, a collection of iconic colonial black-and-white houses remain largely hidden away from the public eyes. Traditionally built for European and expatriate families from 1800s, the houses are beautiful dames that hark back to the colonial way of living, one that is poised yet relaxingly slow-paced.
Park Colonial is all about embracing the past while looking to the future – a celebration of the finest then and now.
Exterior Aesthetics: The architecture is a refined articulation of colonial-inspired features. From the grand square drop off area to the colonial-inspired architectural façade treatment and the use of black and white tiles within the development. The elegance of Park Colonial’s exterior is further accentuated with its sophisticated interior space & design.
Interior Aesthetics & Finishes: The architectural language is carefully carried through from the exterior to the interior aesthetics and finishes through the careful selection of quality materials and color palette. Bigger units are finished with lighter tones for a more opulent touch while smaller units are finished with a darker tone, exuding understated class. Quality fittings and appliances are also provided, from brands such as Bosch, Roca and Grohe.
Facilities: At the heart of the development is the Colonial Club, a clubhouse where residents will be proud to hold parties and events. Inspired by the form and space of colonial villas and statehouses, it offers a contemporary interpretation of the functionality and timelessness of tropical colonial design, welcoming residents through a generously-overhanging portico and spacious patio that leads into its luxurious interior. With a ceiling soaring 10-metres high, this lofty space not only have views of the surrounding lush greenery but also allows daylight to enter, creating a wonderful play of shadows against the façade screens.
