Is it because its near the naval base that it has this name? Well it appears so. Because apparently a Rear Admiral of the British fleet resided here, along with the Naval high command during colonial days. Today what counts as part of the Admiralty (of the Republic of Singapore) is further away from the station, but a name has been inherited by this new HDB town. And check out the new nearby park with large slides!
You see, in recent years our little red dot has been ramping up construction of not only excercise stations, but also playgrounds. It’s not quite Legoland, but hey! Can you think of any other city or country in the world that does this?
