Conveniently located at the doorstep of a bus interchange and MRT station, Jurong Central Park is a large neighbourhood park situated in the west of Singapore. With its beautifully scaped gardens and various facilities, it is an ideal park to spend a leisurely or active weekend at. Suitable for families with children, it is the first park in Singapore to have live-size board game features like the Snakes and Ladders playground and Ludo Garden.
The various pavilions and sitting areas make it ideal for picnics, especially with the vast array of food and drink outlets situated close by. For the more actively-inclined, there is a fitness corner, as well as a 2km cycling+jogging track that winds its way around the park.
You can reach Jurong Central Park using park connectors:
– The Jurong West Park Connector leads to the Jurong West Neighbourhood Park.
– The Jurong Park Connector branches in two directions. Head south and you will eventually reach the Jurong Bird Park. Follow the park connector east to reach Jurong Lake Park, where the Chinese Garden and Japanese Garden are located.
