Haw Par Villa MRT Station (CC25) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Circle Line in Queenstown planning area, Singapore. It is located next to Haw Par Villa, previously called Tiger Balm Gardens, hence the station's name.
When the Circle Line was initially planned, this station had been planned to open only when the surroundings is more developed. It was only announced to be opened on 25 January 2008 with the rest of Stage 5 to attract visitors into the Haw Par Villa.
Art in Transit
The artwork featured in this station under the Art in Transit programme is Eroclamation by Tan Wee Lit, located on the lift shaft in the station. Inspired by traditional papercuts, the black-and-white artwork shows images of traditionally Chinese elements (such as a pagoda, archway and peonies) with pictures of heavy machinery (tractors, cranes, etc.) hidden in them. The former is a reference to the Chinese-themed attraction which this station is named after, and the latter is a commentary about how much the western side of Singapore is reclaimed land. Keen eyes will also spot the tiger hiding among the peonies, a reference to the name "Tiger Balm Gardens".
West Coast Extension (Jurong Region Line)
On 25 August 2015, Lui Tuck Yew at Clementi Station announced that there will be a possible West Coast Extension from the Jurong Region Line. Its said the West Coast Extension would end at this station, and it would most likely be built in the 2030s.
