It was the relaxed vibe of Pasir Ris that attracted my family to make it our home more than 10 years ago. Now, #MyPasirRis is set to be transformed into an urban sanctuary under HDB’s Remaking Our Heartland Programme (ROH); a tranquil seaside town rejuvenated!
Town centre refreshed
The heart of the town will see a new mixed residential and commercial development, integrated with the bus interchange. A town plaza and heritage garden will serve as new meeting places for residents to gather and interact. Beautiful landscaping will also be very much a part of the refreshed town centre.

Live and play amidst nature
The Pasir Ris Park and Beach are set to get even livelier, when more family-oriented spaces and recreational options are introduced. Residents can look forward to dining amidst nature, once the new hawker centre at Pasir Ris Town Park is completed.
A waterfront for all to enjoy
New housing will also be built next to Pasir Ris Park, so more will be able to enjoy the resort-like ambience of this urban sanctuary.

Upgraded community spaces
Nearer to home, existing neighbourhood parks and neighbourhood centres will be revamped to offer residents newer facilities and an enhanced living environment.
Elias Mall will have a heritage board, cycling facilities, and better landscaping
Brontosaur Park will have a new playground, seating, and landscaping
Residents can easily get to the revitalised Pasir Ris Park and Beach via a new elevated Central Greenway that runs through the Town Centre. The existing cycling and pedestrian network will be extended and enhanced, which means a safer and more enjoyable commute around town.
Pasir Ris is a cycling haven indeed
My family is really looking forward to seeing Pasir Ris transform, and will be finding out more at the exhibition.
View the plans for yourself and give us your feedback. Remember to visit the exhibition at the Pasir Ris Town Centre (beside the MRT station) from 29 April (Saturday) to 14 May (Sunday). Save for the first day when it opens at noon, the exhibition will be available from 9am to 9pm daily.
Psst…did you know? Plans for this round of #MyROH took into account residents’ views and suggestions. Read about the other plans on MyNiceHome! 🙂
