If there’s one thing I absolutely adore about where I live in the east of Singapore, it’s that nature parks and beaches are so easily accessible – from Pasir Ris Park and Changi Beach to Tampines Eco Garden and plenty of little neighbourhood gardens filled with flowering greens.
We might live in an urban city filled with towering buildings and skyscrapers, but we’re very blessed to have little pockets of nature to escape to whenever we feel the need to get away into calming greenery.
From the various hiking trails to the Southern Ridges Walk (my favourite!), we have no lack of walking/hiking/cycling trails in Singapore. And best of all, there’s more coming!
Apart from the recent opening of the Jeju-lookalike Changi Bay PCN (part of the Round Island Route), the north of Singapore will soon have the new Khatib Nature Corridor that includes a whopping 150 hectares of nature parks and parks, and 80km of trails.
Apart from Springleaf Nature Park that’s already there, you can also look forward to visiting Nee Soon Nature Park (a rare freshwater swamp forest habitat!) that’s an extension of the Nee Soon Swamp Forest, Canberra Park, and Khatib Bongsu Nature Park (to be completed by 2026).
Two other new parks to look out for also include Miltonia Nature Park (a natural stream and riparian zone), as well as an extension along Lower Seletar Reservoir.
This means we can expect to enjoy more gorgeous viewpoints, and explore the new walking/cycling trails. Get your hiking shoes or your bicycles ready, it’s time to explore the brand new nature parks, connectors, trails and more!
PS: And if you’re in need of a mental health break, these green spaces will be perfect for some forest bathing too.
