Learn about the Some FACTS of PASIR RIS (Eastern part of Singapore)

1) Nature's Gift
The coastal heritage of Pasir Ris is evident from its name, which is said to derive from to Malay words: Pasir and Hiris, which mean “sand” and “to slice or shred” respectively. These are likely references to the fine quality of sand along the beach. Mangrove forests also grew along the rivers and coast, with the Api Api family of mangroves providing the name for one of the main rivers in the area.

2) Kampongs of Pasir Ris - A Movie Backdrop?

Most of the early settlers in Pasir Ris lived in kampongs. These villagers worked in the plantations close by or were fishermen. The kampongs were featured in several Malay films of the 1950s and 1960s including P. Ramlee’s Pendekar Bujang Lapok (1959).

3) Seaside Retreats

In the late 19th century, wealthy families had seaside bungalows along the Pasir Ris coast. These bungalows had swimming areas, gardens and dance halls. Elias Road was so named as it led to the bungalow of businessman Joseph Aaron Elias.

4) Pasir Ris Park: A Community Space

Under a community recreation plan in the 1950s, basic amenities were built at Pasir Ris, attracting more visitors. But it was not until the 1980s that the area was reclaimed and redeveloped into Pasir Ris Park. Designed into various thematic areas, this park is only one in Singapore with a preserved mangrove forest and boardwalk.

5) Recreation For All

By the 1960s, Pasir Ris was no longer the preserve of the wealthy. The People’s Association built holiday camps where it ran youth and leadership programmes. It also developed holiday flats for working class families to relax, enjoy the outdoors and sea sports.

6) Fishing

Fishing is a popular activity of Pasir Ris residents’ past and present. While villagers used to fish in the rivers and sea, current residents can fish at the commercial saltwater fishing pond in Pasir Ris Town Park. This pond used to be part of the Golden Palace Holiday Resort that operated in the late 1960s.

7) Pasir Ris: A Seaside Town

The design of Pasir Ris town was inspired by its history as a seaside resort. Maritime motifs can be seen on the HDB blocks, neighbourhood parks and other buildings. The landscaping with coconut palms and mangrove growing along the river canals also brings residents closer to the natural environment.

There is a lot more history to discover behind Pasir Ris, to know more, join us at Multicultural Heritage event.
