Punggol, Singapore

#1 – Punggol Park

Introduction: Developed with the theme “Family Leisure”, Punggol Park has facilities and activities for the whole family. With an “Active Zone” located at the southern part of the pond and “Passive Zone” at the north of the pond, there is something for both young and old to enjoy.

Children can play together on the play equipment and families can engage in tai chi at the plaza area. The shady trees provide a lush, cool area for families to picnic under while bicycle tracks allow avid cyclists to enjoy a session of cycling with friends.

If you find all the activities too much for you, you can choose to sit back and relax at the outdoor dining area of the restaurant located within the park.

For those looking for more passive forms of recreation, the shady path at the northern end of the park is a great place for a leisurely stroll or to enjoy the tranquility of the surroundings. It is also a good pit stop for joggers to rest or do some simple stretching on the fitness equipment before commencing their run.

Things To Do:

  • Cycling: Take a leisurely cycle within Punggol Park, or venture beyond the park and explore the scenic North Eastern Riverine Loop in our Park Connector Network.
  • Exercise & Workout: Punggol Park is usually abuzz with park goers engaging in their respective activities. You can join in for qigong or tai ji sessions in the morning.

In the park is also low impact 3-Generational fitness equipment suitable for users of all ages.

#2 – The Punggol Settlement

Introduction: The Punggol Settlement is a bespoke food and beverage specialised development concept envisioned and materialised by its developer, The Colonial Settlement Pte. Ltd. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Fragrance Group Limited), to revive old Punggol and bring it back to its former glory and more as the dining destination of the North-Eastern sunrise pinnacle of our tropical island city state. 

Rapid urban planning with land acquisition / relocation policies by the state authorities of the past 2 decades had displaced the food & beverage geocentric of timeless Punggol away from its original seafront pinnacle.

Sited on the original general area of this vintage food and beverage location of the days of yore in pre-millennial Singapore, The Punggol Settlement is Punggol re-established, rebooted, and ready for a wave of delectable dining and entertaining eats, dollops of desserts and rejuvenating recreation – all to be experienced in harmonious symbiosis in natural cohesion with the flora, fauna, and vast peripherally encompassing seafront of the redeveloped and constantly evolving Punggol Point of today…

It all started with a man who had a passion for fishing and a dream to revive the Kampung spirit and lifestyle in the heart of Singaporeans. The late founder of Hai Bin, Alex, decided then that he would make it his dream to create a space of rest and relaxation that might revive the passion of fishing in the midst of our hectic urban lives. 

Thus began Hai Bin’s journey as Prawn Fishing Pond in Sin Ming Avenue, Bishan in 2007. In just 13 years, Hai Bin has grown and expanded to provide high quality prawn fishing experiences to our customers in Jurong, Punggol as well as Sembawang.

Being a solo or group activity alike, prawning has garnered a strong following since its introduction to the city state more than 20 years ago. It is an activity that doesn’t discriminate, from young children who seek the thrill of the catch, to the busy older folk who wish to seek a respite from the bustle of city life. Regardless of age or background, the beloved pastime is synonymous with bonding, family and just laughter and smiles of relaxation all around. In fact we have included for parents who are hesitant to let your child dive into prawning right away smaller ponds for net catching tiny fish! They guarantee that children under 12 will love it, their only wish is for you to take back the memory and thrill of catching something with your own hands!
