This North-East adventure hike takes one through some of the most scenic attractions that Punggol has to offer.  From the expansive Punggol Waterway Park to the instagram-worthy Lorong Halus Red Bridge, this hike is a must-do for local explorers!

Punggol Waterway Park is a 12 hectares riverine park that aims to transform the area into a vibrant waterway town. There are four different themes—Nature Cove, Recreation Zone, Heritage Zone and Green Gallery—designed to cater to different users. The park is also part of the Eastern Riverine Loop and the Coast-to-Coast Trail.

Lorong Halus is a former garbage landfill that covered an area of over 100 football fields. Lorong Halus was soon shut down in 1999 with the opening of the new landfill in Pulau Semakau. Today, a part of the landfill is converted into a coastal wetland and opened to the public for conservation and educational purposes.
