Park Connector Network
With a large interlinking network of park connectors, you can easily park hop while indulging in various fun and recreational activities.
Feel the cool breeze as you navigate your way along the roads, picturesque rivers and canals that link you to the major parks in Singapore. Hop on a bicycle, put on a pair of rollerblades or simply jog along the park connectors and appreciate the myriad of sensory delights and adventures on offer.
The Round Island Route (RIR) is a continuous 150 km park connector that goes around Singapore. It was first conceptualised in 2011 following public consultations for our City in a Garden vision, where many suggestions were given by the public on a green corridor that goes around the island, linking parks and park connectors. After a period of study, plans were announced in 2012 to develop a Round Island Route.
The Round Island Route will complement the existing Park Connector Network, connecting existing natural, cultural, historical and recreational sites and linking communities together. It will provide opportunities for recreational activities such as cycling, skating, jogging and hiking. These connections and activities will enhance our ‘City in a Garden’ experience for all residents.
There will be three corridors for the Round Island Route. Development for the “Coastal Adventure Corridor”, the first section to be developed, is slated to begin by end 2016. When fully completed, users will be able to cycle from Rower’s Bay at Lower Seletar Reservoir Park along the coast of Sengkang, Punggol, Pasir Ris, Changi and East Coast Park to Gardens by the Bay East. The route will also be wider than normal park connectors in most areas (6m instead of 4m), and have amenities such as shelters, toilets, lookout points, seating areas, information kiosks, bicycle parking lots and self-help bike repair facilities at various nodes.

As you ride or jog along our park connectors, please remember to be considerate to other park connector users. Read more about Park Connector Network Etiquette here.
