For those with a thirst for adventure, by now, you’ve probably covered popular spots such as Coney Island and Macritchie Reservoir. So if you’re looking for a new place to explore, head down to Hampstead Wetlands Park, a hidden wetland at Seletar Aerospace Park.

The undisturbed nature spot features boardwalks, viewing decks, and a nature trail for visitors to admire its fauna and flora. Engulfed in beautiful scenery, this is the perfect place to visit during the weekend.

The 3.23 hectare is a restored sanctuary for plants, birds and other wildlife that inhabit freshwater ecosystems, so don’t be surprised if you see many animals over here. 

The animals there are harmless, but with nature, there’s bound to be mosquitoes. To keep yourself protected, come equipped with mosquito repellent or patches.

Small and colourful birds such as kingfishers and parakeets have been sighted, with the occasional appearance of owls. If you’re dabbling in photography, this’ll be the place to sharpen your skills.

Besides the tranquillity, Hampstead Wetlands Park also offers boardwalks and viewing decks. Nature lovers can follow these trails and soak in the view, or even bring along a picnic mat for a short tea break within this secret enclave.

Rustic colonial houses can be spotted along the trails, and the park even has an untouched forested area that features an enhanced wetland habitat. We’re no Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, but over here, you’ll get to be one with nature.

When you’re done, complete the experience by popping by Wildseed at The Summerhouse. The cafe offers air-conditioned garden domes — perfect for cooling down after a long trip. 

Other cafes such as the popular Wheeler’s Estate are nearby too, so you can grab a meal before heading home.

Since Hampstead Wetlands Park is just a 20 minutes bus ride from Sengkang MRT, it’s convenient for anyone who’ll like to explore the area.
