A Walk to the Coast

The Coast-to-Coast Trail is a 36 km trail that spans across Singapore. Stretching from Jurong Lake Gardens in the west to Coney Island Park in the northeast, it will take users through a variety of parks, park connectors, nature areas, places of interest and urban spaces. Some of these include Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park in central Singapore, and Sengkang Riverside Park, in the northeast of our island.

From early-2019, you can choose to explore the trail on your own, using a DIY trail guide or mobile app. Or for a more immersive experience, you can also look forward to participating in activities and programmes that will be organised along the trail. These include experiential and interactive features such as interesting way-finding signs, fun game stations and viewing areas to spot wildlife.

Get Closer to Nature

Look forward to new experiences in the many green spaces in the heart of Singapore with the upcoming Nature Park Network. Comprising 48 km of trails in the vicinity of the Central Catchment and Bukit Timah Nature Reserves, the network will promise increased connectivity between our central nature parks, all for visitors to enjoy a more seamless and enriching experience.

The network will include a number of parks, including Dairy Farm Nature Park, Hindhede Nature Park, Zhenghua Nature Park, Chestnut Nature Park, Windsor Nature Park, Rail Corridor (Central), part of the Coast-to-Coast Trail, and surrounding park connectors. Curated DIY trail guides of varying difficulties will also be made available from early 2019 for visitors to explore these interesting green spaces.
