Overshadowed by Singapore’s Toa Payoh flagship Town Park, this little piece of greenery is often overlooked by many as a greenery haven, that is, if they even know it exists.
This piece of greenery pales in comparison to Toa Payoh Town Park, which is just a skip and a hop away. Yet, located off the main road and just behind Singapore’s Toa Payoh West Community Club, this little piece of greenery is probably the neighborhood’s best-kept secret.
However, being located right in the middle of a densely populated residential estate has more advantages than disadvantages for this little piece of greenery. For starters, it’s very close to shops so you can grab a drink when you’re thirsty.
And if you are bringing young ones, they can entertain themselves at a playground nearby.
It won’t be too hot as the surrounding flats are tall enough to provide some shade so that you and your loved ones can look at the greenery together in relative comfort.
For the active, there is a short jogging track too.
Should it rain, you don’t have to run far to find shelter.
In short, this little piece of greenery is perfect for those who want some peace and quiet or family time, yet enjoy modern amenities.
