Coney Island Park, Singapore's latest nature attraction finally opened its doors to the public on 10 October 2015. Also knows as Pulau Serangoon, this 50-hectare sustainable park being managed by NParks (National Parks Board) is located off Singapore's North East coast.
Coney Island also known as Pulau Serangoon, features diverse habitats, including coastal forests, grasslands and mangroves and casuarina woodlands. This rustic park is an ecologically sustainable park with many environmental initiatives. It focuses on conserving energy and water, recycling and retaining of the natural elements in the park.
The island is best explored by foot or by cycling. Start exploring the forest and mangrove habitats on the newly built boardwalk and move on to the beach which can be accessed at five locations.
