NATIONAL DAY BLOG TRAIN HOSTED BY GINGERBREAD MUMI am a huge sucker for lush greenery and big empty fields. Even better, the soft breeze against dandelions and soft feathery fountain-grass simply brings me to dreamy escapades and beyond! Living in a cosmopolitan city, it's almost impossible to find such heavenly places anymore. It is all buildings and high rise apartments surrounding our 360.
But living in Sengkang has somewhat led me to believe that there are some well kept "secret" places in Singapore, especially that of where I live in. Sengkang Riverside Park is one of them. Snug in the Anchorvale area of Sengkang, this place is quite a treasure for it's lush greenery, artificial ponds, man-made lakes and big open fields which are perfect for picnics and kite flying.
I have not been there much, nor have I actually really ventured the entire park because it's HUUUGEEE. You can actually see this park when you drive along the Tampines expressway and across the Jalan kayu flyover. It's beautiful greenery is so inviting that you would almost want to hop out of your car and explore the park.
The last time we went to the Riverside Park, we actually had a mini picnic party to celebrate my son's fourth birthday and the pictures came out amazing!
|This is the entrance you would see along the road.|
This used to be a multi-purpose hall that looks almost awesome for parties and weddings,
but it has been since converted to a cafe.
|The lush greenery that awaits you|
|Beautiful plants and leaves surrounds|
|Perfect for kite-flying, and senseless running for the kids|
|The green pathways that are just so awesome|
|I told you, the place is perfect for "bollywood" poses!|
|And we had a beautifully simple and naturalistic picnic-birthday that special day.|
To get there, you can take the LRT from Sengkang Interchange and alight at Farmway station. it is just a five minute walk from the station, and it faces the Sengkang swimming complex too! Here is more information about the park on the National parks website.
