Meta Description

Lower Seletar Reservoir Park is a calm and quiet setting with blue waters and warm breezes, making it ideal for land and water activities.

History:

The Sungei Seletar/Bedok Water Scheme, completed in 1986, built the Lower Seletar Reservoir. The damming of Sungei Seletar to produce Lower Seletar Reservoir, the formation of Bedok Reservoir from a former sand quarry, and the construction of Bedok Waterworks were all part of the concept. The building of nine stormwater collection stations to capture stormwater runoff from the surrounding urbanized catchments was a distinctive aspect of the project. Ponds in Yishun, Tampines, Bedok, and Yan Kit make up eight collection stations.
