Woodlands, Woodlands New Town (Chinese: , Pinyin: Wùlán Xīnzhèn; ), is a suburban town in northern Singapore, part of the North West Community Development Council (Northwest CDC) district. The town should not be confused with the Woodlands constituency within the Woodlands New Town in the Sembawang Group Representation Constituency (GRC).

Woodlands is adjacent to Sembawang New Town and Sungei Kadut Industrial Estate, and is connected to Malaysia's southernmost city, Johor Bahru, by the Johor-Singapore Causeway. Woodlands is also connected to Yishun via Gambas Avenue and Senoko via Woodlands Avenue 10.

Woodlands has one of the largest shopping malls in Singapore. It is also home to the Singapore Sports School, Republic Polytechnic, and Innova Junior College.

Woodlands' developments are concentrated in the central, southern and eastern portion of the estate, leaving a countryside lifestyle of fresh air, serenity and the privilege of being surrounded by trees in the northern portion.

Large open spaces, grasslands, parks, recreational facilities and communal gardens are found nearly everywhere in Woodlands. Most of the housing apartment blocks are interconnected, providing sheltered pavements throughout an entire division within each estate. Nonetheless, several larger parks are packed within estates and serve as escapes from the urban lifestyle. Representing a rich diversity of natural habitats and pleasant environments, these parks, though man-made, are often scenic. Woodlands Town Garden is one that has served Woodlands for quite some time and the recent parks opened, Woodlands Waterfront.
