Bridges and a waterway: Punggol Waterway Park

We love visiting and exploring parks. This was our first visit to the Punggol Waterway Park. Punggol Waterway Park is a 12.25 hectares riverine park located in Punggol, Singapore, along Sentul Crescent Road. We decided to explore this place since we were somewhere near it. There were lots of hidden gems in this park.

Introducing the Kelong Bridge, one of the landmarks of this park.

that follows the alignment of Old Punggol Road

The lovely view from the Kelong Bridge

At the end of the bridge, there is a Heritage Trail

To our surprise, we find this old bus stop which gets me very excited. 

This bus stop and a 160m stretch of the old Punggol Road were preserved as remnants from the past. You can take a walk down memory lane and see the development of Punggol from a plantation area to what you see today. You can do your DIY history lesson from the heritage panels and Heartwave Wall!

The highlight for the kids!

Little One is so happy with the place that she starts to dance around!

We end our trip by walking to here.
We love the serenity of the park. the view of running water and its reflection. Best of all, the water play area. If you need a guide, you can download from here
