Breezing Through Ulu Pandan Park Connector

Feeling bummed out that the holidays are over? Fret not! You still have your weekends to relax with family and friends!

Go for a ride along Ulu Pandan Park Connector on your bicycle. If you have a foldie (i.e. a foldable bicycle), the Buona Vista MRT Station is conveniently located near the park connector., You will be in for a treat as you ride along Ulu Pandan Park Connector from Buona Vista (Commonwealth Avenue West) to Pandan Reservoir. You may even spot some resident birds and pretty dragonflies en route.

Start off in the early morning and be treated to a cool breeze as you pass through stretches abutting a secondary forest. Once you are across Clementi Road, you will pass by remnants of the historic KTM railway bridges, after which you will arrive at the first bike-friendly elevated park connector in Singapore – the Ulu Pandan Park Connector Bridge.

After an exciting spin and short ride along Pandan Gardens Park Connector, you will reach your destination – the picturesque Pandan Reservoir. There, you can rest and take a few photos.

How’s that for a morning’s exercise? Check out the video clip of our ride along the suggested 6km (one-way) route, then head out and try it out yourself!

The Ulu Pandan Park Connector is part of the Western Adventure Loop.

Hi David, We have referred your query to PUB, which manages the Pandan Reservoir. They have gotten back that the maintenance track on the Pandan Reservoir dyke is a gravel surface and the width of the track is generally narrow. It’s an access for PUB to carry out their regular maintenance of the dyke and its embankments. However, members of the public are allowed to jog or run on it. In the interest of public safety, cycling is not permitted on this track.

Ulu Padang PCN looks interesting. But to cyclist like me who stay in the eastern side of SG (Tampines area), can you advice a route for us to cycle there (via PCN). Thank you.

i noticed that we still need to go up steps to reach Pandan Reservoir... are there plans to add a ramp there as well? but first of all, are we allowed to cycle on the path around Pandan Reservoir? thanks!
