#43 of 95 in Parks in Singapore
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. Bedok Reservoir was constructed under the Sungei Seletar/Bedok Water Scheme, completed in 1986.

It was originally quarried in the 1930s to supply sand for the reclamation of Kallang basin for the building of Kallang Airport. A 6 km long railway was built along with associated sidings and 13 locomotives were supplied by Pecketts for transporting the sand trains between the quarry and Kallang Basin.

  • Great place for running and walking. One of the most peaceful places with greenery all around. There are fun activities too like Forest adventure.
  • A serene & peaceful site for jogging, roller-blading; casual stroll. A decent restaurant here also provides some simple meals if you are hungry.
  • Very nice and chill place for exercising. Here you get to enjoy the peace and tranquility amidst it's location. Peak hours are usually 4-7pm. Plenty of benches and tables here as well, if you're planning to just take a break from the hectic lifestyle. There are also open playgrounds for your children, fitness corners and public restrooms.
  • Very calm place, which is great for a run or walk. Since, I live right next to it, I go for a run every day here. Have spotted snakes and Komodo Dragon here. If you do not disturb them, they would not harm you. Due to it's sheer size, though lot of helpers work day and night to keep it tidy, there are still several spots which need attention.
  • Is an awesome natural park catering to people of all ages. Is an ideal place for brisk walking, cycling, jogging etc.

Where to stay in Singapore

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.
