What to Know About Punggol Park
Punggol Park is a park in the Hougang neighborhood in Singapore’s north-eastern region. The park covers 16 hectares and has a 5-hectare lake. Due to the closeness of Paya Lebar Air Base, kite flying gets prohibited here. The park has two separate zones: the “Southern Active Zone,” which contains the amenities needed for main activities, and the “Passive Zone,” which is thickly forested and located north of the lake.
A park was planned for Hougang in November 1992, according to reports. Punggol Park gets named after the intersection of Hougang Avenues 8 and 10, chosen as the park’s location. The pond in Punggol Park is well-known, and many schools use it for their 1.6-kilometer runs. The pond was formerly quarried for sand to help restore Hougang’s various marshes, resulting in the current state of the pond.
Punggol Park is a simple spot to rest your feet, fill your tummy, and clear your thoughts, with a tranquil lake in the middle of the heartland.
