Sembawang Park is really a park unto its own. Set in a tranquil, lush landscape in Northern Singapore, you literally feel like entering a portal into another world as you walked into it. Moreover, the panoramic views of the sea and the surrounding islands is indeed a sight to behold, something to rival Punggol point!

The first thing I look for in a park would be the running trail and the fitness corner. i found running to be a pretty good choice of activity here due to the lush, scenic environment and cooling air.The fitness corner was satisfactory with most of the equipment i'd need for a proper workout. However, I had a minor annoyance upon discovery that the pull up bars have poor grip hence rendering me unable to hit or try to surpass my usual limits.

Cycling wise would be quite a challenge since I live in Sengkang and would need to cycle to Yio Chu Kang before going up, which I'd reckon would take a solid 2-3 hours and another such time frame to get back. Moreover, some portions of the park connector was poorly demarcated and the crowds of people especially in the area of Khatib MRT made it unconduicive for safe cycling.

Overall though, a park worth a visit!

Sembawang Park is certainly a convenient venue to launch a game of potlucks and picnics just like I did. It was spacious and the venue wasn't over crowded. There wasn't even a need for parasols to shield ourselves away from the scorching sun there! The canopy of leaves from the humongous trees that towered there were sufficient in blocking out most of those UV radiated rays. Hence, this venue is certainly not one where I was sweat pro-fused thanks to its cooling environment that conquered Singapore's usual sweltering hot temperatures!

Unfortunately, it was slightly eerie come night fall. I recalled scurrying to a nearby bus stop. We packed in a rush as we found ourselves being enveloped in darkness. Some of my friends even relied on the lights emitted from phones! More publicity and lightings should be installed for this particular park to be lighted up with a liveliness at night!

The taxis were a rare sighting there too! We resorted to dialling the hotline number for Comfort Delgro Cabs. Our wallets began weeping thanks to the additional fare derived from the cab call!
