Sembawang Park

What better way to spend these warm summer-yearlong weekends than in Singapore’s Sembawang Park. There are lots of things for you to try, and these things don’t necessarily break your bank accounts, but it sure can break your stress lines in exchange for some good quality siesta times. You’ll agree with everyone else who finds the time and energy to go all the way into this side of Singapore to enjoy the green space.


Did you know that studies have shown that parks and open green spaces provide not only health, but also economic benefits to a city and its people? No wonder, Singapore profusely planted park areas such as this one.
  

Facing the Johor Strait, the Sembawang Park is one of the most tranquil and scenic parks you’ll ever discover, when in Singapore. It has a phenomenal beach side view, where lots of local families with young kids would hang out and catch some vitamin sea. I found myself purposefully lost in this far side of Singapore, where the only company I had were the smells of afternoon barbecue and sounds of laughing kids.


These 15 hectares of greenery and relaxation spaces have a maritime-themed park, enthused by Singapore’s naval history. You’ll enjoy the company of kids and kids at heart all trying to swing around the titanic-size playground.


Inspired by the Sembawang Tree (Mesua ferruginea), this heritage park is antiquatedly meshed with shelters and barbecue pits, nice running and walking trails, as well as historical places like the Admiralty House, Kampong Wak Hassan, Masjid Petempatan Melayu Sembawang, Sembawang memorial and the Sembawang Shipyard.
  

It’s your definite go-to place if you’re seeking love for Singapore’s life of destressing and relaxation. It’s also a good hideout for all those photography enthusiasts who enjoy nice scenic gardens, nature reserves, and
 heritage places. Planning to visit, count me in?
