  • I didn’t know that this park is so big before I came. It took me nearly on hour to go through the whole park. It’s definitely a great place for you to walk around if you like green and jogging.  more »
  • There is a River through the Park's landscape, and running along the there was surprised how many people to cycling. Also, wide lawns, a kite-flying and dog walkers who, everyone, I was spending freely. More hot and humid Singapore is green shade, is easy to pull off.

  • Amazing area to catch a breath of fresh air. With occasional fast food restaurants and rest rooms, this garden is top-notch! With playgrounds for your child to play in and different events each time of the year, this place is great for family-fun! There are different species of animals inhabiting this area, so they even have activities planned for you to get close with these animals. A usual place for cycling, roller skating, scooter riding, jogging, skateboarding and many more! Totally recommended for tourists who would love a breath of fresh air, and love social places like this.
  • Beautiful landscape. The former canal that's been turned into a river offers a diverse range of plants and views. Fish and other animals can be commonly spotted thriving among the plants.
  • Amazing park in Singapore. The picturesque views of the surrounding public housing estates are straight out of a PAP (the ruling political party) brochure. Great features like exercise areas, dry and wet playgrounds for kids, ponds and a stunning artificial river full of fish, views of the Bright Hill Temple, stunning plants including the enigmatic Cannonball tree and plants specifically designed to attract and be a sanctuary for various butterflies as well as birds who are migratory and from the nearby nature reserves. You might even spot some cute otters if you're lucky! The hold regular concerts and community events here, and even have trendy restaurants and spas and bars in certain areas. Overall 5 star park and impeccable use of Singapore's tiny space. If you live nearby then this park is already home to you. If you're a foreigner looking to "go off the beaten path" out of Singapore's main tourist circuit and see the real side of Singapore's heartlands, then head here, which is walking distance from the entrance of the winding nature trail through the tropical rainforests, whose hike leads right into the heart of Singapore's central nature reserve and the treetop walk.
  • Quiet and pretty park to relax. A few cafes around and even a spa. If you love dogs, hang out at the dog park in the evenings, a huge turn out.
  • Nice path for walking and cyclying. Can see interesting birds like the purple heron and the white breast water hen. Beautiful flowers too !

North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
