World Health Day!

 
It’s World Health Day on 7 April! 
Here are 5 parks or trails you can visit to celebrate World Health Day this year.
 

 

1) Windsor Nature Park

Covering 75 hectares, Windsor features three hiking trails (Drongo, Squirrel and Hanguana) and a 150-metre sub-canopy walkway. You can continue walking to MacRitchie Reservoir and even Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. Much of this is on raise pathways, but there are also the original jungle trails if you prefer. Wild boar sightings are common at the start, monkeys and even wild chickens! 

 

2) Punggol Park with Coney (Serangoon) Island

Starting from the Hougang Ave 10 entrance to Punggol Park, this walk covers quiet beaches as well as bustling neighborhood, really showing how Singapore is a ‘City in a Garden’. But keep your food well zipped in! A band of monkeys in Coney Island are better trained than urban human kids when it comes to opening bags, taking out food and eating them. 

 

3) Fort Canning Walk

Established in 1859 as an arms store, barracks and hospital, Fort Canning holds the memorials of Singapore’s history, including the bunker where the British made the decision to surrender to the Japanese. Attractions include Sir Stamford Raffles’ personal bungalow and the Spice Garden – a replica of the original 19-hectare tract established by Raffles in 1822. Set in the heart of Singapore, it has plenty of winding paths and quiet spaces, too.

 

4) East Coast Park walk

Open for 24 hours, East Coast Park is Singapore’s largest and most popular park, offering a long stretch of sea, sand and swaying palms. Here, you can enjoy the calming sea breeze and have fun trying out different activities other than walking, you can rent a bike or try out rollerblading or barbecues.

 

5) Singapore Botanic Gardens walk

Enter an impressive oasis of greenery, with terrains varying from rolling lawns to jungle, and plant life from orchids to cacti. Named an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015, it’s the first and only tropical botanic garden on the list. Besides just walking, try out their events, workshops and tours!
 

Get your comfy shoes ready and start off your World Health day with a day at these parks!
