Subzone of Kallang Planning Area
|• Malay||Kampung Java|
|• Jawi||كامڤوڠ جاۏا|
Kampong Java (Chinese: 甘榜爪哇) is a subzone within the planning area of Kallang, Singapore, as defined by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). It is bounded by the Central Expressway (CTE) in the west; Balestier Road in the north; Tessensohn Road, Race Course Road, Gloucester Road, Northumberland Road and Tekka Lane in the east; and Bukit Timah Road in the south.
Kampong Java is probably best known for being the location of KK Women's and Children's Hospital and the headquarters of the Land Transport Authority (LTA). Other significant places within this subzone include the headquarters of Tanglin Police Division, Kampong Java Neighbourhood Police Centre, Pek Kio Community Centre, Balestier Plain, Farrer Park Field, Farrer Park Tennis Centre, the Singapore Indian Association, the Singapore Khalsa Association, Kampong Java Park and Farrer Park Primary School.
In August 2018, the Singapore Government announced its plan to destroy the Kampong Java Park, a haven for wetland wildlife, turtles, birds and mature trees, frequented by parents and sick children from the nearby hospital, so that it can build an expressway road tunnel.
