Description: Springleaf Nature Park was formerly part of the Chan Chu Kang village – named after the headman Chan Ah Lak who acquired the land near Seletar River to cultivate gambier and pepper.
The forest near Chan Chu Kang were also favoured for the collection of botanical and zoological specimens. Collectors such as Henry Ridley, Singapore Botanic Garden’s first director, would collect specimens from the area.
