Sengkang (meaning “prosperous harbour” in Chinese) is a relatively young satellite residential town in the city-state of Singapore. Originally a fishing village, the area is undergoing rapid development under the ambition of the Housing and Development Board (HDB) to transform it into a “21st century township”.
Here are 5 awesome things to do when you are in Sengkang.
1. Take a dip in the Sengkang Swimming Complex
The Sengkang Swimming Complex burst onto the Sengkang scene back in August 2008. As long as your children are at least 1.2 metres in height, they can have great fun zipping down the eight slides – multislide, free fall, speedslide and twistslides! Your younger kiddos won’t be left out either as there is a dedicated splash-and-slide area including a big bucket of water that pours down on them every few minutes. For yourself, find time to soak and enjoy the jets in the large jacuzzi pod.
The rates to enter these special feature pools under the care of Singapore Sports Council are kept affordable at $1.50 per adult and $0.80 per child/senior on weekdays, and $2.00 per adult and $1.00 per child/senior on weekends and public holidays. In other words, you can stay cool for more than a paddle in the pool with just $6 for a typical family of four on a weekend!
2. Get fit at ClubFitt Gym
Voted by Men’s Health SG as one of Singapore’s Top 5 Neighbourhood Gyms, ClubFITT is a 355 sqm gym located in the same compound as Sengkang Swimming Complex.
It is very spacious, and allows a large amount of people to come in at the same time. The weights come in a wide range as well. The price is very affordable as well, $1.50 for those 18 and below, and $2.50 for the rest.
3. Visit the Sengkang Fire Station
Don’t know what to do with the kids during the weekend? Consider an educational trip to the Sengkang Fire Station.
Sengkang Fire Station is Singapore’s biggest fire station. This 7,000 square meter fire station boasts a $14-million state-of-the-art facility for the Singapore Civil Defence Force. It is home to the first Immediate Response Centre – which brings together a medical company and a rescue battalion under one roof, with all their specialised equipment.
All the fire stations in Singapore are open to the public every Saturday morning from 9am to 11am.
4. Nature trip at the Sengkang Floating Wetland
The Sengkang Floating Wetland measures 2400 square metres and is the largest man-made floating wetland in Singapore.
The Sengkang Floating Wetland in Punggol Reservoir helps improve the water quality and provides a natural habitat for birds and fishes. Boardwalks bring people closer to enjoy the scenic views and learn about the wetland ecosystem. The floating wetland also provides a seamless connection between the Anchorvale Community Club, Sengkang Sports Complex and the Sengkang Riverside Park.
Since the completion of the wetland, more birds and dragonflies were noticed to be attracted in the area.
