Changi Jurassic Mile: SG’s Coolest Park Connector With Life-Sized Dinos Linking ECP & Changi Airport

Changi Jurassic Mile

Changi Jurassic Mile opened in October 2020 to much fanfare. Covid-19 restrictions had been freshly lifted, and you can bet that cabin-feverish Singaporeans bolted to this new attraction with much gusto.

Now that the novelty has fizzled slightly, you can enjoy this charming themed park connector without worrying about getting engulfed by crowds. Here’s what you can expect from this Eastside gem that links East Coast Park to Changi Airport, near Terminal 4.

As Singaporeans, we can’t help but stan park connectors ‘cause they allow us to clock in some real mileage be it walking, running, or having a lil cycling expedition. Smoothly paved pathways, great sights to take in along the way, and the ability to zip through without worrying about traffic or obstructions – love it!

Now imagine that good ol’ PCN experience, zhng-ed up with more than 20 life-sized dinosaur models.

This means plenty of eye candy to keep you engaged and help power through the cardio. And for families with little ones in tow, this is a free way for your kiddos to get some fresh air, sunlight, and see some dinosaurs which they all seem to be oh-so-enamoured with.

Along the 3.5km park connector, more than 1km will be taken over by colourful dino models spanning 9 different species. For those who fancy themselves a bit of a prehistoric geek, here’s your chance to test your dinosaur knowledge. With a mix of carnivores and herbivores, see if you can tell the tyrannosaurus rex and velociraptor from the stegosaurus and triceratops.

Changi Jurassic Mile is open 24/7, so in the daylight, you’ll get to see the majestic statues in all their detailed glory. But if you swing by past sundown, the illuminated models give a whole different vibe.

Not everyone owns a bike or wants to lug one all the way to Changi, and there’s where bicycle rental stores come in clutch. There are GoCycling outlets at both East Coast Park and Changi Airport Terminal 2, for you to conveniently rent a ride for the duration of your Changi Jurassic Mile trail.
