Tucked away in north western Singapore is the charming and compact Choa Chu Kang Park. It is very accessible— just a ten-minute walk from Choa Chu Kang MRT Station brings you to this urban oasis.

A wide range of activities are available at Choa Chu Kang Park, and here are our top picks!

Activity 1

First up, we have gardening! Grow your own herbs, vegetables, fruits and flowers at the Allotment Garden located within the park. You can rent a plot, which is about 2.5 metres by 1 metre, at $57 for three years. Keep an eye on the NParks website to find out which plot is available, and put those green thumbs to work! The wheelchair-friendly Therapeutic Garden is right next to the Allotment Garden. It has edible and fragrant plants, as well as soothing water features.

Activity 2

Explore all four playgrounds at the park, which cater to children of all ages. The pyramid climbing net and train-inspired playground are hot favourites in this kiddy wonderland! There are also plenty of shaded seats near the play areas for parents to relax, while keeping an eye on the little ones.

Activity 3

Try out the walking trail in the forested area, adjacent to the park. It is home to wildlife, fruit trees, and a range of trees and shrubbery that are native to Singapore. If you’re lucky, you can even spot some rare species of birds!

Activity 4

Take your skateboard out for a spin at the skate plaza in the park. Skating and cycling newbies will find the broad and smooth tarmac pathways a forgiving place to practise their moves.
