To the northeast of Singapore is the Lower Seletar Reservoir Park. Quietly nestled behind the Yishun Sports Hall and Yishun Stadium, and sitting beside the Orchid Golf and Country Club, it offers runners a calm and peaceful short-distance running route, with a 1.3km running track.
Sailing was first introduced in Singapore reservoirs here at the Lower Seletar Reservoir. Other popular activities include bird-watching, sports fishing, kayaking and dragon-boating. Facilities are complete; the park is equipped with a fitness corner, sheltered areas and benches, toilets and water coolers. It also boasts a Family Bay with a new performance stage, a water play area, a bioswale rain garden, as well as a Heritage Bridge, making it an ideal weekend leisure destination for families.
