Nature Trail in North-East Singapore
The Lorong Halus Wetland and the Riverside Walk of the Punggol Promenade was officially opened on 5 March 2011. Finally, we had a chance to see it last Saturday.
Lorong Halus used to be a landfill. Now a portion of it is a wetland greenery for the public to get close to nature. The Serangoon River has been dammed to be a reservoir and a red bridge has been built to get across the Lorong Halus Wetland. There are walking tracks and cycling tracks that connects to other park connectors around Singapore so it is a fun and peaceful place for exercise.
We walked from our place and reached there around 6pm. It was crowded during the weekends. There are several eating places here so it is a great place for a family gathering to enjoy the peace and tranquility of nature. These are twilight and night landscapes.
Next time, I will come earlier for a different point of view and to read up more of the information boards here. And I need a bicycle!
How to get here
By Bus and MRT, LRT
From Sengkang Interchange, take bus 83. Stop at Riviera LRT station. For those taking MRT, stop at Punggol MRT, switch to LRT and alight at Riviera. Walk pass the temple and you are on the way to Lorong Halus Wetland.
By Walking from Sengkang
Between Rivervale Drive (near Blk 187B) and Punggol (near Blk 116), there is a pedestrian bridge over the TPE. Cross the bridge, pass the basketball court, turn right, walk straight along the school fence. Cross the road and walk along the pedestrian walkway. Cross another road and you can see the temple from here. Head there. There is another way at the other end of Rivervale Drive, nearer to Rivervale Plaza, along the river. The place is still boarded but a section is open but there is no lights installed yet.
Have fun on the nature walk. Enjoy the peace and quiet.
