Exploring Singapore – Punggol Waterway Park (a.k.a My Waterway @ Punggol)
On 27 Feb 2016 at around 3plus in the afternoon, I headed out to the north eastern part of Singapore for my second month photo challenge of exploring Singapore.
It was almost 4.30pm when I reached Punggol MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) station and searched my way towards Punggol Waterway Park, a place that I’ve not visited ever since it was developed.
Never did I realise that I’d gone the wrong way and entered the park smacked right in the middle, where I took the first picture.
It was a hot day, although it was approaching the evening. I have intentionally chosen that time to visit the place, hoping that it will soon fall dark and allow me to capture some nice pictures during the golden hour.
But it came late, as the heat of the sun rays was more than warm. I began to roam around the park which proves to be not as big as I thought it should be.
As I walked around, I found myself perspiring profusely, and my shirt was wet. But that did not stop park goers from exercising where I could see cyclist and joggers working out.
By the time I complete 3/4 of the park, it was close to dusk and so I headed the other way and ended up at the Waterway Point shopping mall which sits at the other end of the waterway, which I waited for the sun to go down completely before my night shoots.
If not for the hot and humid weather, My Waterway @ Punggol is definitely a nice place for locals and tourist to visit and enjoy the greenery of the surrounding. There are many rest areas for visitors to rest and paths big enough for people to move around freely.
An ideal itinerary would definitely be a slow stroll in the park before having a nice dinner at Waterway Point or the other way round, walking in the soft ambient light and enjoy a romantic evening after a sumptuous dinner.
