A very popular recreation area in the Eastern part of Singapore. 

Circling Bedok Reservoir are several paths, some of which are paved, others are packed gravel, which makes Bedok Reservior an enjoyable and interesting running circuit. Total distance around the lake is approximately 4.3km. This place is well-used among joggers and water sports enthusiasts. The park is well lit and can be used early in the morning or later in the evening. Although there are trees, it is a large open space which may get quite warm if you run midday.

Sports enthusiasts regularly gather at the park to dragon boat, kayak and wakeboard. Fitness enthusiasts, schools and organizations conduct regular runs at the park’s 4.3km track. Alternatively, sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery from the benches that are conveniently placed throughout the park. Visitors can experience a refreshing sense of tranquility at the floating deck, situated near the Activity Mall event site, which offers a spectacular view of the reservoir.

Bedok Reservoir was recently used for the following events: Tampines Run 2014 @ North East, Island Road Runners, Bedok Reservoir Ultramarathon 2014, GK Run To Build 2014, Carnival Run 2014 and Kampong Chai Chee Valentine Run.
