Pasir Ris Park
Charming and tranquil, Pasir Ris Park is a great place for families to have a fun day out. Aside from modern park activities such as pony rides, water sports, cycling, inline skating and barbeque rental, it also features a carefully preserved six-hectare mangrove forest.
With multiple trails and a Mangrove Boardwalk, visitors can explore the beauty of the mangrove forest and get close to its inhabitants. The three-storey Bird Watching Tower located within the mangrove forest allows bird enthusiasts to observe birds in their natural surroundings. Families can also have hours of fun at the playground, one of the largest in Singapore.
