Pasir Ris Park Singapore Overview
Located right next to Pasir Ris Beach, Pasir Ris Park is regarded as one of Singapore’s biggest parks. Singapore’s Pasir Ris Park is 6.6 kilmetres long and covers a total area of 70 hectares, including some reclaimed ground. Visitors to Pasir Ris Park can take in the splendor of this mangrove forest that has been conserved and get up close to its inhabitants. Within the mangroves of Pasir Ris Beach Park is a three-story bird-watching tower that enables bird watchers and nature enthusiasts to observe the birds and wildlife in a natural setting.
The initial announcement of Pasir Ris Park’s plans was made in April 1978, with the park’s intended audience being the locals in Singapore. Pasir Ris Park’s initial designs were for a sizable pond, running and cycling trails, tree groves, and a sports complex. In addition, two Japanese landscape architects were hired to help with Pasir Ris Park’s design.
The initial property purchases for Singapore’s Pasir Ris Park started in November 1977, and more land purchases had been made in 1983. In addition, 110 acres (44 hectares) of land were reclaimed from the sea. In 1983, Pasir Ris Park’s plans were completed.
To get rid of the wet soil, a section of Pasir Ris beach of Singapore was lifted during the creation of Pasir Ris Park. Earthworks were done to make Pasir Ris Park’s environment undulating in contrast to the area’s flat terrain, and a section of the mangrove swamp near the park’s Loyang end was also preserved. Singapore’s Parks and Recreation Department announced in 1984 that Pasir Ris Park will open in three phases, each of which would be associated with one of the three themes chosen for it—”Children’s Holiday,” “Saturday Afternoon,” and “Fair Weather Sunday.” Construction on the 20 hectares (49 acres) area for the third theme, “Children’s Holiday,” had begun in September 1984.
In 1986, Pasir Ris Park’s initial phase had its official opening. With different types of equipment for each age group, this part with the “Children’s Holiday” theme was designed for kids of various age groups in Singapore. In 1988, construction on the 79-acre (32-hectare) Fair Weather Sunday began. Pasir Ris Park included a viewing point, picnic areas, and a mangrove region with wooden boardwalks. 5 hectares (12 acres) of mangrove were saved during Pasir Ris Beach Park’s development, and another hectare was added in 1989. Visitors can access the mangroves via elevated wooden walkways and signage that provides details on the local animals. It was designed for less demanding activities like strolling. At the end of the 1980s, further amenities, including a maze, were added to Pasir Ris Park, and Phase 4, a huge meeting area at the park’s western end measuring 7.7 hectares (19 acres), was finished in 1991.
Pasir Ris Park was once more expanded in 2007. A herb garden, a 1.2-kilometre raised wooden walkway in the mangrove, and an open interpretive centre that was designed to match the mangrove forest were also installed during expansion and renovation.
