Haw Par Villa MRT Station (CC25) is an underground station along the Circle Line (CCL). It is built underneath West Coast Highway and Pasir Panjang Road, and located next to Haw Par Villa (or Tiger Balm Gardens), the oriental-style theme park which the station is named after.

Haw Par Villa was originally built in 1937, then privately owned. Known for its statues depicting scenes from Chinese folklore, the garden grounds were acquired by the government in the late 1980s and subsequently leased out to various private companies for development and management as a commercial theme park, and subsequently a public park and remains as the prominent attraction in the vicinity.

Apart from the Haw Par Villa park, Haw Par Villa station serves private homes, condominiums and industrial buildings near the Pasir Panjang Port.

Art in Transit: “Eroclamation” by Tan Wee Li

Much of the west side of Singapore is reclaimed land. As Singapore continues to undergo development and construction, traces of our history have been gradually replaced and consigned to memory. Consisting of various iconic landmarks of the West, the work presents these distinct features in the tradition of a paper-cut that aims to re-capture the tranquility of a past longed for. The omnipresent construction machinery juxtaposed against the serenity of the composition represents their naturalized integration into our everyday environment and the integral role they play in social progress and urban development.

Circle Line Stage 5 (CCL5) Contract C856 for the construction of West Coast, Pasir Panjang, Alexandra, Telok Blangah and HarbourFront stations and associated tunnels was awarded to local company Sembawang Engineers & Constructors Pte Ltd. The working name for Haw Par Villa station was West Coast Station.

Originally earmarked as a future station, only structural provisions would have been provided as the area around it was not fully developed. The station eventually opened along with all other stations along the Circle Line Stage 5.
