Not a very famous place, totally underrated for me. Big and nice park with a lot of decorations, you need about 2 hours to see it all. For me, the best park in Singapore, after Gardens by the Bay and the Botanical Garden.

Used to be another good place for running and walking for couples. However now most areas are blocked off. There are also lots of trucks around the area now.

A relaxed tourist exploration of this park will take a 0.5 day upwards. Chinese Gardens (EW25) is the stop on the MRT. From the station a walk down to the pond along a straight scantily tree lined path through playing fields is the way. Drinks...More
