Sengkang Riverside Park: Part 2

Sengkang Riverside Park: Part 2

Sengkang Riverside Park is located at Anchorvale Street in Sengkang housing estate. If you remember from my previous post, the newest public park is divided into three areas, divided by Anchorvale Street and the river Sungei Punggol. These three areas were labelled Visitor Centre Plot, Mangrove Plot and Civic Centre Plot. I have described the Visitor Centre Plot earlier. Today I shall continue with my descriptions of other plots.

Sengkang Riverside Park: Mangrove Plot
Over at the mangrove plot, south of Anchorvale Street, Sengkang Riverside Park is an open space with a hilltop that affords a 360-degree panoramic view of Sengkang estate. One can find park benches here to rest and to enjoy the estate's serene scenery.

On cool afternoons, you can expect to be greeted with a mild breeze. On scorching hot days, the cubed-shaped wooden shelter filled with gaps will hardly save your skin from painful sun rays.

The area next to the river, designated for a mangrove park, appears to be under construction. Concrete piles have been planted into the riverbed and a part of the river bank has been cordoned off. Perhaps in a month or two, there would be a boardwalk of some sort to allow park users to inspect the newly planted mangroves.

At the time I was there, the mangrove plot of Sengkang Riverside Park seemed rather bare. Even the shrubs and trees were few and scattered far apart.

Sengkang Riverside Park: Civic Plot
East of the Sungei Punggol, Sengkang Riverside Park offers another avenue for park visitors to enjoy more open spaces with amenities. However I did not get the opportunity to explore the area.

See more places. Live more life.

It's great to see how much Sengkang Riverside Park had developed over the past 1-2 years, thanks for the update.

Whenever I passed by there on TPE, I was amazed at the surroundings and changes, I need to make plans & visit the Sengkang Riverside Park and Kampong Lorong Buangkok soon !
