How are you getting on? Hope you stay safe and healthy wherever you are.
Recently I had visited a park which’s located at Lower Seletar Reservoir in Singapore. The park is about 4.3 hectares in size both land and water area. I was quite excited as it was my first visit to the park. The park is near to Khatib MRT, roughly a 5-10 minutes walking distance from Khatib MRT to Lower Seletar Resevoir Park.
Once I reached the main entrance, there was a beautiful wooden bridge connecting from the entrance plaza to the walkway of the park.
Continued the journey, a calm, peaceful and turquoise lake view with a row of Rain Trees, Samanea saman along of the walkway that creating the beautiful scenery. The benches seating are provided at this best spots for enjoying the beauty and tranquillity views. It was as beautiful as a painting or art piece. And it also could be a great spot for photography lovers to capture the beautiful photos.
The Rain Trees, Samanea saman are well grown in this park. They perform both functional and aesthetic value to the park. The spreading of tree crown over 10-15 metres which is providing shade to the walkways and seating area, and also framing the stunning water views.
It is definitely a pleasant place for recreational activities such as kayaking, dragon boating, and leisure kayak rentals. There are a kayak and boat rental center on the way to the end of the park.
Besides that, the fitness enthusiasts is enjoying water view while jogging along the walkway around the park.
The MRT track is across the north south direction of the lake. Therefore, sometimes we can see the MRT are crossing on the MRT tracks as the backdrop of the park views.
Walked till the end of the corner of park, there was a Family Bay with performance stage, water play area and Rain Garden. It was an active zone in this park that attracting kids and youngsters to play water at this zone.
The performance stage is another good spot for resting and enjoying the water view after exercise and long walk. It also was connecting to Heritage Bridge.
The Heritage Decking offers panoramic views of the water and sky, the visitors can easily feel soothing and calming over there.
The lights are built in along the timber decks railing. And the brown paint coated lighting posts brighten out the Heritage decking during the night time.
There are also a white curve shelter structure with seating and signboard are built at the middle of the timber decking bridge. The curve shelter structure design is more on contemporary and modern concept.
When visiting the park, I was lucky to meet good weather with sunny and breezy especially the beautiful sky views.
In the end of my journey, I saw a vegetable plots which is built for residents nearby here to rent for growing some vegetables. The vegetable plots design is very neat and simple with gravels flooring and concrete cement structures.
It is a good spot for me to back to nature, and peace of mind from the busy work schedule.
