Pasir Ris Park and Pasir Ris Town Park: Singapore’s Everyday Go To Park

Pasir Ris Park and Pasir Ris Town Park

To all the upper east siders in Singapore, this might be an ancient tale already, but if you are in search of a family-friendly, weekend day-out kind of open place, where activities like pony rides, water sports, barbequing, cycling, skating, and maybe even fishing, you have to see the Pasir Ris Park and Pasir Ris Town Park. For me, it looks completely charming and contemporary; it’s a place you would want to hang out with your friends, families, and folks.




Derived from the Malay word ‘Pasir Ris’, which means 'beach bolt-rope', this place is quite huge and packed with people. There are a multitude of trails to explore, from Mangrove boardwalks to playgrounds, and open spaces. It was my nth time in this park, and this time around, my sole motive to explore the place, was to find the nearest coffee place according to google maps. Imagine my surprise when I got lost? True story, lol.


I did not mind getting lost at all, because the park has areas where you can see heritage trees, heritage roads, and skyrise greneries. It’s pretty impressive for a park as packed with people as this one; probably too packed, because I was there on a weekend. The crowd is as diverse as the activities you’ll find here. You may even want to people-watch, maybe.


This park that stretches from Pasir Ris Road down to Jalan Loyang Besar is probably one of the nice tourist and local landmarks you’d want to explore if you happen to find yourself on this side of Singapore. And while you’re at it, probably update your Google Maps? :-)
