The freshmen know what I’m talking about. You go there for orientation camps, or spend the weekend playing Volleyball and getting fifty shades darker. You know this place, but you probably never saw it from this perspective. It’s a beautiful and very vibrant place, bustling with people (just about 20 million and 1/5 of Singapore’s population, that’s all) engaging in all sorts of activities. Running alongside the coast not only trains your calf muscles because of the sand terrain, it also keeps you interested.
It’s probably an aggregation of all sorts of family activities – BBQ, cycling and running. One of the oldest coastal parks that stretches from Changi Ferry Terminal to Changi Point, this 3.3km is a haven for both runners and families.
