Pasir Ris Park is a 71 hectare beach park located in the eastern part of Singapore which is one of the largest in the country, it has a a full length of around 6.5 kilometers. The Park is just around 20 minutes from Chiangi airport and is near Downtown East Complex ( Wild Wild Wet, Escape Theme Park and Costa Sands Resort). The Park overlooks Pulau Ubin.
The park is for the whole family, it offers a walking trail, a cycling track and bicycle rental, barbecue pits and picnic tables, a mangrove forest, they have a large playground too, a horseback riding area, bird watching area and also a camping site. I saw some locals doing fishing too. They allow swimming but rarely you will see the locals enjoying the beach.
The Pasir Ris Park is just a few minutes away from my husband's apartment, we both love to cycle so we went there early for a morning of some fun and exercise!
Let me share some of our photos:
I had a chance to spend time with the bird enthusiasts/photographers. They even allowed me to touch their cameras and tried a few shots!

The park is very shady, with large expanse of areas covered by large rain trees. Such a relaxing atmosphere!
How to get here: Take the Bus 403 from Pasir Ris Bus Interchange, it is also a walking distance from Pasir Ris LRT station (around 15 minutes walk).
Overall, this is a beautiful park, nicely kept, huge with so many activities for the whole family and free! Unfortunately, the park is far away from the city centre, it is worth a visit only for those living within the vicinity or if you are at the airport looking for a place to go due to a long delayed flight. For whatever reason and you happened to drop by, for sure you will enjoy this park. Have fun! Ciao!
