There are two parts of Bishan Ang Mo Kio Park; the first one is River Plains and the second one is Pond Garden. They are separated by a road. The one that we visited was the Pond Garden which has water playground for children.
We were there for daddy’s company gathering, and we arrived late so we didn’t get a spot to park. But there is an HDB parking complex opposite the park and there is also a bridge to cross from the HDB complex to the park. Too bad the bridge doesn’t have special lane for bicycle, so we had to carry lil boy’s bike when crossing the bridge.
I don’t know exactly how to differentiate or where is the exact location of the River Plains and Pond Garden, To make it easier, the one that doesn’t have Mc Donalds inside is the Pond Garden.
This is a huge park surrounding by the HDB, and we could only explore a small part of the park. We actually spent 2.5 hours inside the park, but most of the time was filled with lil boy playing on the water playground.
We were surrounding by fresh air, fresh water, beautiful pond and small lake, and all we could see were green color everywhere (ignore the huge and tall HDB in the background, ok!)……………so yes it was very refreshing. There are many parts of the park that we didn’t explore including the children playground and the big bridge in the middle of the park, but after all it was a satisfying visit for us. Maybe we should try visiting the River Plains too someday.
And now let me show you this park:
There are clean toilets near the water playground, but as far as I could see there was no drinking water fountain or food and beverage stalls. So bringing your own drink and food and have a picnic there is probably a good advise. Thankfully this company gathering also provided food for us, so we had a nice picnic near the water playground.
