Sports and outdoor exercise activities
If you are engaging in sports and physical exercises, do ensure a group size of up to 5 people and that a safe distance of at least 2 metres between individuals is observed. The total class size should not exceed 30 people including participants, the instructor/assistant, or the approved venue capacity, whichever is lower.
For organised outdoor exercise classes of more than 5 people, instructors/trainers will need to register with SportSG and submit an application to NParks at least 1 week in advance, so as to ensure there is ample space in our parks and gardens for safe distancing. Instructors/trainers will also need to ensure that the necessary safe management measures are being put in place.
Wedding solemnisations and receptions
Selected function spaces in our parks/gardens are open for wedding solemnisations and receptions of up to 50 people, or up to 250 people if there is pre-event testing. This includes the couple, but excluding the solemniser and vendors, subject to safe management measures and the venue’s capacity. More info here.
Filming and Photography
Filming and photography in our gardens, parks and nature reserves can resume. Please submit an online application here. Requests will be assessed based on factors such as the location, proposed filming hours, and whether safe-distancing measures can be put in place. Production companies should also comply with the guidelines by the Infocomms Media Development Authority.
