Singapore: East Coast Park

East Coast Park is one of Singapore's most treasured urban getaways, attracting more than 7.5 million visitors a year, with a total land size of 185-hectares, and a scenic coastline that stretches over 15 km. It was built entirely on reclaimed land with a man-made beach, where swimming is possible. The beach is protected by breakwaters, with no other natural features. 

Themed "Recreation for All", East Coast Park offers an exciting diversity of sporting, dinning and recreational activities catering to various segments. Bowling alleys, volleyball courts, holiday chalets, restaurants and a hawker centre can all be found in this park. For those looking for action, East Coast Park also offers a myriad of sporting opportunities such as cycling, in-line skating, cable skiing and water sporting activities as well as a Xtreme SkatePark for action sports enthusiasts to hone their techniques. In the evenings, bring your families and friends down for a barbecue or indulge in sumptuous cuisines at the East Coast Seafood Centre. With its beachside location and a host of recreational activities, East Coast Park won’t leave you disappointed.

The park is easily accessible by East Coast Park Service Road with numerous exits along the East Coast Parkway. The place has ample parking space with many carparks near the park. The park is also accessible via public transport in the form of bus services, available on East Coast Park Service Road. Underpasses link the park to the nearby Marine Parade housing estate. Open daily and admission is free.
