The Park Connector Network is an island-wide network of linear open spaces that link up major parks, nature sites and housing estates in Singapore. When the entire network is completed, it will form a green network, spanning over 300 km across the whole island, making it convenient to travel from park to park.
The park connectors vary in length, ranging from about 2 km to 10 km, making them ideal for those who like to take short walks to exercise, as well as to cater to cyclists who prefer longer distances. They are usually found alongside the many rivers and canals that flow through the island and are often used as convenient shortcuts to housing estates, MRT stations, and schools.
Equipment: Park connectors are for walking, jogging or cycling only.
In this tiny country sports are in the centre of life. Well, at least its right in the middle of town. Padang is the Malay word for ‘big field’. This set of playing fields is a real part of Singapore history as well as an active sports venue. Cricket has been played here since Colonial times. It was a place for the elite to socialise and one corner is known as the Scandal Point where gossip was traded. When the Japanese invaded in 1942 they rounded up all Europeans here before marching them to Changi Prison.
Today you will find the Singapore Recreation Club building and fields where (Field) Hockey and Cricket are played. Sometimes other sports and events are hosted here. It is surrounded by beautiful colonial buildings and should be part of any walking tour of Singapore.
Mini Golf. Everybody can play. No experience needed, no golf shoes required. Just practice and practice.
