About the Park

Punggol was once a fishing village littered with pig and poultry farms set alongside vegetable plantations. Today, its new residential town is set to capitalise on what remains of this lovely setting. The waterway traversing the town centre and the coastal promenade are pleasant additions to the breezy open spacesand seafood restaurants. The Town Park is a multi-purpose park located just a few minutes' walk north of the Punggol Town Centre. Its traffic-free environment makes it an ideal venue for plenty of leisure and recreational activities along the Punggol Waterway. One can also embark on a nostalgic walk to the old Punggol Road.

*Interesting Fact: Punggol, in Malay, means 'hurling sticks at the branches of fruit trees to bring them down to the ground', perhaps referring to the area as a fruit-growing district years ago or as a rendezvous for wholesale fruit agents.

Background of Punggol Waterway Park Project

The Punggol Waterway Park and My Waterway @ Punggol are joint agency projects between HDB and NParks. The project is part of HDB's 'emaking Our Heartland' initiatives to turn Punggol Town into a 'Waterfront Town' of the 21st century.

The Waterway runs through the Punggol Waterway Park, and both serve to increase park and water frontage for the housing estate and provide a green respite for residents. Designed with four themes to cater to residents of all ages, the park also provides residents opportunities for leisure activities such as jogging and cycling which can be carried out along the promenade at both sides of the waterway.

Four themes

  1. At the Nature Cove, visitors can relax and enjoy the scenic view of the Waterway. They can also enjoy leisure activities at the lawn area.
  2. At the Recreation Zone, families can enjoy activities such as water play and sand play. There is also a fitness corner for all ages.
  3. At the Heritage Zone, there are mature trees and vegetation along the stretch of the old Punggol Road.
  4. At the Green Gallery, visitors can take a stroll and admire the mature trees which are conserved together with the natural terrain of the park.

One round of the whole Punggol Waterway (including PCN track) is about 8.4km (Distance includes crossing the bridges).
