) resembling woods or forest. Woodlands is part of the Sembawang Town Council.
Woodlands is bordered by the Straits of Johor
in the north, Sembawang

The planning area of Woodlands is divided into 9 neighbourhoods, called subzones. They are Greenwood Park, Midview, North Coast, Senoko West, Woodgrove, Woodlands East, Woodlands Regional Centre, Woodlands South and Woodlands West.
Among the sights at Woodlands include Causeway Point, one of the largest shopping malls in Singapore, and Singapore Sports School, a school dedicated to nurture the nation's sporting talent.
