Bedok Town Park

Bedok Town Park

Hugging the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE), Bedok Town Park is a 14.6-hectare sized public park catering to the needs of families nearby. Bedok North Avenue 3 to the east, Bedok North Road to the west, a canal to the north and the PIE to the south mark the four boundaries to Bedok Town Park.

Many bridges lead to this quiet park in Bedok. Visitors can use five bridges to cross the canal from Bedok Reservoir and another four bridges across the Pan-Island Expressway to get from Bedok North.

I like this spacious park because of its long shady paths for cycling and jogging. If your lungs are itching to do more, you can use the Siglap Park Connector to cycle or jog to Bedok Reservoir, or to East Coast Park.

The Pan Island Expressway doesn't irritate with noise as I expected. The hilly terrain helps to block off road traffic noise from the streets. There appears to be little airborne pollution from vehicular emissions as the open space helps to disperse such irritant.

There is a designated place for tai ji exercises here. According to this sign, instructor-led tai ji classes are conducted on Saturdays from 7.30am to 9 am. Other amenities include fitness stations, foot-reflexology and park shelters.

Fruit trees can also be found on this undulating park. Here, mango trees are the notables although none was fruiting at the time of my visit.

The children's playground, located near Block 722, is also a desirable place for families as it is often not crowded. Another plus point for this playground is the convenience of washing facilities nearby. This facility allows the practice of good hygiene with hand washing.

After all, at the end of the day we would rather bring home joyful memories of family togetherness - not nasty bacteria or viruses.

See more places. Live more life.

Wow! So near yet so far. I should go biking to this place one of these days. It is quite near to my place in Tampines and Bedok Reservoir.

Thanks for sharing and reminding me my next place to explore.

Love your website!
