Bishan – Ang Mo Kio Park
It is considered to be the largest park in the whole of Singapore with the most modern amenities. After the introduction of the ABC Programme of the Singaporean government an old canal has been DE-concretised and a natural waver spread across 3 kms with clean waters and wild flowers has been developed here. Apart from the manmade water waves that the park features there is ample of plush greenery in the park. It also features plains of rivers and pond gardens. This makes it a must visit amongst tourists. The locals living nearby also keep visiting here for recreational activities.
It is a perfect spot to travel to with your families for picnics. Even casual gatherings can be held here. Spread across 62 hectares of land a wide range of flora and fauna is found here. One can also jog along on the tracks that run across in a circular fashion around the park. In recent years the park has also won a tag for the most leisure friendly destination. Efforts are being made by the Government to have facilities like a futurustic foot ball field, an amphi theatre and a natural pond. The River plains also feature a modern play facility for children having different abilities. The park is completely wheel chair accessible and also has a accessible merry-go-round and a wheel chair swing. This allows children with special needs to play along with their non-disabled friends.
