Bedok Reservoir is a reservoir in the eastern part of Singapore, to the north of Bedok New Town. The reservoir has a surface area of 880,000 m², and a capacity of 12.8 million m³. The mean depth of the reservoir is 9 m, with a maximum depth of 18.2 m. The shoreline length is 4.3 km.HistoryBedok Reservoir was constructed under the Sungei Seletar/Bedok Water Scheme, completed in 1986. The scheme involved the damming of Sungei Seletar to form Lower Seletar Reservoir, the creation of Bedok Reservoir from a former sand quarry between 1966 and 1972 and the construction of Bedok Waterworks. The earth excavated was used for East Coast Reclamation in the 1970s (HDB Annual Reports). Its unique feature was the construction of nine stormwater collection stations to tap surface runoff from the surrounding urbanised catchments. Eight of these collection stations are ponds located at Yishun, Tampines, Bedok and Yan Kit new towns.ReservoirBedok Reservoir is now open to water sports activities such as wakeboarding, sailing, fishing, canoeing and kayaking. This follows the Singapore Sports Council's (SSC's) efforts to allow water sport enthusiasts to make use of the various reservoirs for activities which do not compromise the quality of the water. The programme kicked off with the HSBC Wakeboard World Cup Singapore 2004, held at Bedok Reservoir on 30–31 October 2004 and this was the first international water sports event to be held at a local reservoir.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.

  • This park is covered by tracks around the reservoir. The best and most distinct is the track following the edge of the water. The distance is exactly 4.3km making it 1/10 of the marathon. Perfect for marathon training. Most of the track is gravel. Easy on the knees. There are toilets and drink vending machines along the way should the need arises. There are other features in the park but my chief interest is it's usefulness for running. There's only one downside as a running track. It's very flat. But there are alternative tracks that are steep, which I use for uphill conditioning.
  • Nice place to be outdoors in the Bedok area. The reservoir is located in what used to be a sand quarry and the park that has been developed around it great for people walking, running and biking. The forest adventure attraction is closed down for repairs and renovations.
  • Good atmosphere (the air smells lovely and the sky is beautiful). Can meet a lot of dogs in the morning. Never feels too packed.
  • A big reservoir with a little over 4km track running around the body of water, a nice oasis amongst all the urban building surrounding it. Water activities are buzzling too
  • Nice ambience but the path is covered by gravel which makes cycling much less enjoyable.
