More Parks and Water bodies around us

PUB wants you to be in touch with ABC. Recently, we keep hearing about new Water Features and Parks upgrade around Singapore.

The latest would be Punggols' Jewel "Punggol Waterway".
Official opening is this Sunday and you can expect fireworks !



~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

1) Bishan Park, they cover up the big Long-kang (canal), and let water meanders through. When Daddy was young, he used to join his primary school friends to catch guppies ! Click to read more about Bishan Park's developments. Boon Kang (with pacifier) might remember regular doggie walks.


2) MacRitchie Reservoir, has been there like forever. It never age, still attracting crowds every weekend. Daddy remember the awful cross-country runs :p
The boardwalk will bring your family nearer to the water edge, and are stroller-friendly. We are excited about MacRitchie's new submerge walkway :)
If you need more challenge, go for Tree Top Walk ! Click for MacRitchie's recommended trails.




3) Punggol Waterway Park. The name itself shouts fun! You get Greens, running river, waterfalls, and wet playground for kids. All 4.2Km of WaterWay is built for family participation.




All these new developments mean more playground for kids. Hooray !
However, with urbanization, something have to go.

In Sengkang, large chunks of hills are level off. If you are traveling along TPE towards Jalan Kayu, you will see large expanse of secondary forest has been removed. Take the West Bound LRT and you will see more cranes and bulldozers. Condos and BTO are sprouting up at every corner in Sengkang, kite flying space is getting scare in Sengkang :(




Interested to find out upcoming developments, just pop by ABC (Active, Beautiful , Clean Waters). We will also recommend Npark's walking trails for hours of Fun exploration.
