When you think of Singapore, images of skyscrapers, tall buildings, shopping malls, Resort World Sentosa and Marina Bay Sands spring to life. What remains from the metropolis is a hidden area that is able to rejuvenate your senses.
An area of vast greenery away from a bustling city life. A peaceful and calm environment with shrubs of bushes, leafy grasses and occasional squeaks of birds.
Welcome to Tampines Eco Green!
I have the privilege to stop by the “undiscovered” location with my trusty bicycle. Easily found alongside the PCN (Park Connector Network), my journey starts from Punggol Waterway, continue towards Pasir Ris Park and Bedok Reservoir Park. Follow the “PCN” words marked at pavements and signs at road junctions. From Pasir Ris Park, it takes about 20 minutes to reach Tampines Eco Green.
I step into the marshland trail…
The trees sways gently, filling me with optimism.
Moving ahead. Quiet and rustic.
Take a break, grab a granola bar and enjoy the beauty of nature
Path diverts out to easy jog and walk.
A little pond that adds to life’s diversity.
A great place for a weekend stroll. Best of all, it’s free!
Bring your mates, families and children. Just remember to tone down your voice for the guardians of the wild watch over you. So, there you go, one of Singapore’s little marshlands, smack right into the neighborhood.
Let Tampines Eco Green amaze you.
