With the Punggol Reservoir, also known as Sungei Punggol, running through it, Sengkang Riverside Park is calm and tranquil. Featuring a constructed wetland and rich biodiversity, it is a favourite of nature lovers.
Visitors can hike on the park’s many trails to view the manually planted marshes and get close to the inhabitants of the marshland. Home to many aquatic plants, the constructed wetland doubles up as a wildlife habitat and attracts a variety of mangrove birds and damselflies. Alternatively, embark on an educational journey to explore the fruit trees planted around the park. Besides common edible fruits such as star fruit, chiku and dragon fruit, you may even discover exotic fruits that cannot be found in local stalls and supermarkets. Visitors can also visit Singapore’s largest man-made wetland, PUB’s Sengkang Floating Island, which is located within the park.
Sengkang Riverside Park is one of four parks located on the North Eastern Riverine Loop of the Park Connector Network. Sengkang Riverside Park was awarded the ABC Waters Certification, as an excellent example of how the protection of our water resources can be creatively integrated with urban planning in a sustainable manner.
