Path to Serangoon Reservoir East Dam and Coney Island

17 Aug

Views along the way to Serangoon Reservoir East Dam and Coney Island

This post is for anyone who has not been here before and wish to come here. The starting point is Lorong Halus Wetland. For various links and photos on Lorong Halus Wetland and how to get there, click here.

Facing the red bridge at Serangoon Reservoir, you see this view of the entrance to Lorong Halus Wetland.

If coming from Pasir Ris Farmway 3, you get this view when entering Lorong Halus Wetland. Turn right at the end of the road and go to the front entrance as shown in the above picture.

Follow the gravel path as shown below. Easy to see which path because the path in the opposite direction is barricaded. Follow the river bank. Wear steady shoes as the gravel path is rather uneven and gets muddy after the rain.

Early morning, birds are flying about and tiny flies dance in the air searching for food. The best part of early sunrise, there are lesser people about.

Some mornings, the sunrise is simply spectacular.

These are favourite spots for birdwatchers. For those on bicycles, follow the reservoir edge and push the bike over the slight incline next to the fence. If you cross over further on the right side, there is a drain there. Be prepared to carry your bike across and be careful not to fall.

After crossing the grass field, you see this tar road in front of the dam.

The road leads to Pasir Ris. There is a barricade there. For those on bicycles, slide under or at the sides, then turn right to either return to Lorong Halus Wetland or back home to Pasir Ris and beyond.

For those heading to Coney Island, follow the green railing to the end of the road and climb over.

Hope you find your way here. Have fun!
