The best time to enjoy Singaporeâ€™s parks, nature reserves and the great outdoors is during the November December period when the weather is cooler. Cloudy and windy days are the days I love best. Cooler weather always makes me feel so energised!
For the last few years, Singapore has been on a drive to create more parks and natural spaces for people to enjoy. I really love the fact that in a few years time, the whole of Singapore will be interconnected via the Park Connector Network (PCN) such that it will be possible to cycle around the entire Singapore! Wonâ€™t that be just awesome!? Anyway we donâ€™t have to wait for that to be finished. There are so many parks all over Singapore, the number is sometimes quite amazing. And I canâ€™t wait for when the Gardens by the Bay will be finished too. Really looking forward to that.
Here are some pictures I took when I visited Sengkang Floating Wetland (also known as the Sengkang Riverside Park) 2 months ago. Every time you drive along the Tampines Expressway (TPE) from Tampines to Seletar/Yishun, there will be these 2 rivers along the way. For the last 10 years, Iâ€™ve always wondered how on earth to get access to those rivers, because it was just shrubs and forest on both sides. The whole place looked like a picture outside of Singapore. Now, with the Sengkang Floating Wetland, plus a jogging path built right next to the Sungei Punggol (Punggol River), you really have to go there to experience it.
You can park your car along that bridge there!
