As one of the largest urban parks in central Singapore, Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park is a great place for families to have a fun day out. Under the PUB’s Active, Beautiful and Clean Waters (ABC) Programme, the old concrete canal has been de-concretised and naturalised into a beautiful 3 km meandering river with lush banks of wildflowers. Aside from its unique waterways, the park features lush greenery, Pond Gardens and River Plains, making it a popular choice with nearby residents for recreational activities. The 62-hectare park is also home to a wide array of interesting fauna and flora, making it ideal for nature lovers.
History: The park was constructed in 1988, and is one of the biggest and most popular parks in Singapore. The park, costing SGD$8.5 million to built, is one of the biggest park projects by the Housing Development Board at the time of its construction. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced the official opening of the ABC Waters@Kallang River-Bishan Park Project on 3 October 2009. The project, initiated by the Public Utilities Board (PUB) and the National Parks Board (NParks), will see the transformation of the existing canal into a natural meandering river upon completion in 2011.
