Sengkang Riverside Park was opened in November of 2008, with additional areas including its wetland areas opening in subsequent years. In total, the park covers more than 21 hectares (52 acres). It is made up of three areas of open parkland, a constructed wetland and the floating wetland, which is in fact the largest artificial floating wetland in Singapore.
The main feature of the park however, the reason why so many people flock there, and what gives it its characteristic tranquil atmosphere is Sungei Punggol (or the Punggol Reservoir) which bisects it. What also makes this park a popular place to visit, especially for cyclists and runners is the fact that it is one of four parks that make up the 26 kilometre, $57 million North Eastern Riverine Loop – part of the PCN (Park Connector Network). The other three are Punggol Park, Punggol Waterway Park and Punggol Point Park.
