Sengkang Floating Wetland is a part of Sengkang Riverside Park. The easiest way to get here is to walk from the backside of Sengkang Swimming Complex, cross the bridge, and you are there within minutes. Other alternative would be walking from Sengkang Riverside Park and just follow the signage “Floating Island”.
Since we had nowhere to go that afternoon, we decided to check on this place. It is Singapore’s largest man-made wetland. It is is a natural habitat for fishes, waterbirds and wildlife. About 18 wetland plant species are planted for their cleansing and aesthetic properties, and there are spaces throughout the wetland for people to enjoy the waters.
It is a very peaceful place considering how close it is to the busy street. We saw not to many people riding the bicycles, jog, or just enjoy the afternoon breeze by sitting on one of the bench or simply taking a relaxed walk in the afternoon.
It’s great to bring kids to enjoy the nature like this.
