September’s Walk will be cancelled.

Date: Saturday, 14th Sep 2019

Time: 4.15pm sharp (Be punctual, please)

Duration: approx 3 hrs / approx 6km – easy terrain

Meeting place : Potong Pasir MRT, NorthEast Line “NE10” Exit C (outside Old Chang Kee)

EC: Azhari C

Let’s stroll upstream along the river banks to our destination!
We had visited this park a couple of times some years back and had seen portions being boarded up for major refurbishments.

An initiative by PUB was launched in 2006 to transform our waterways into beautiful streams with natural materials, waterscapes; creating spaces for the community to enjoy and increase biodiversity.

Bishan-AMK park was one of the flagship projects under this transformation programme between PUB and NParks.

The park which is located in urban central Singapore was transformed from a concrete canal to having a natural “Kallang River” flowing into and through the park, an immense project never done before.

The park now with lush greenery, grassy lawns, playgrounds, ponds, are all ideal for family picnics and gatherings; fitness enthusiasts cycle or pant along well-maintained tracks, or sit by the banks to see water ripples swirling through natural rocks, exceedingly soothing and therapeutic.

The walk leaving us tired and hungry will culminate with dinner at Teck Ghee Court Food Cente.
From here are buses available to either Bishan or AMK MRT.

Note:
There are not many or few shelters, good to have your brollies.
Water to hydrate on a hot day.
Need energy, bring along a snack.
To breeze along, lighten your load.

Walk Team: Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Azhari Cuttilan, Linda Chua and ChristinA Chan.

Those coming, register ASAP!

  1. Dear All,

    September’s Walk will be cancelled.

  2. much regret some were feelin unease with the haze, so did not come for the walk.

    Though only 5 of us, we proceeded. It was a leisure walk; as we fellowship along the way, the sights were wonderful.. we see cherry blossoms, the rare slanted rooftops, streams of water with fishes big & small and naturally, terrapins.

    We had time to sit to have a small snack bought from Old Chang Kee’s curry puff and chai tou kueh amongst sounds of gushing waters. Walk ended arund 7pm.

    Thanks to the 3 participants who requested us not to cancel the walk.

    To those who cannot make it, we look forward for your continuous support.

    I pray the sky will be cleared for our walk on 05Oct as it will be almost a full day but leisure walk.

    See ya….
    ChristinA & Walk Team
