Rochester Park and Nepal Park were developed by the British in the early 1950s to house officers and their families. The area was given conservation status on 24.3.2010.

Nepal Park was named in recognition of the British Crown’s ties with the sovereign country of Nepal. The Gurkha Regiments in Singapore, led by British officers, were stationed in Slim Barracks at the foot of the hill. The Gurkhas, recruited from Nepal, were famed for their fighting prowess and their loyalty and devotion to the British Crown. The bungalows at Nepal Park served as family accommodation for the British officers of the Regiment.
