The new nature park will provide more area for nature-based recreation.
Nature lovers, a new 18-hectare nature park located west of the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve will be available for you to explore soon.
Called the Lim Chu Kang Nature Park, it will be part of the new Sungei Buloh Nature Park Network, announced the National Parks Board (NParks) on Wednesday (Aug 19).
The entire network will encompass 400 hectares and 15km of nature trails for visitors to explore and reconnect with nature.
It will also be complemented by the Round-Island-Route (RIR), a major upcoming recreational route that connects various green areas through trails and part connectors.
The new nature park will link the Wetland Reserve and Lim Chu Kang mangroves directly.
It contains various habitats, such as mangroves, woodlands, scrublands and grasslands, and is home to coastal birds and grasslands dwellers like the grey-headed fish eagle and baya weaver.
Lim Chu Kang Nature Park will also feature outdoor nature-play spaces, inspired by the park’s various habitats and its inhabitants, for children to spend time outdoors and amidst nature.
There is also a conserved building, Cashin House, which will be used for educational programmes. The house will also be opened to visitors to explore learn about the area’s surroundings and historical significance.
Cashin House will be undergoing renovations to include new facilities such as an exhibition space, seminar rooms for workshops and even a seaview terrace.
Renovation works for the house and its surrounding areas should begin in the last quarter of 2020 and are expected to be finished in early 2022.
