One of the largest parks in Singapore, the idyllic Bishan-Ang Mo Kio park comprises two sections, separated by Marymount Road. Intersecting the length of the park is the starting portion of the Kallang River, which flows down from Lower Pierce Reservoir through some lush 62 hectares of parkland. The river is also frequented by native wildlife including a famous family of smooth-coated otters and also a nesting spot for purple herons.
The gentle sloping grassy banks make the perfect spot for a picnic – and if you want to get closer to the water, there are designated "flooded streams" where you can dip your toes in by crossing on the stepping stones. Other garden attractions include the tranquil Pond Garden and River Plains.
The park's many eateries include Grub, Canopy Garden Dining and McDonald's. The park also has a spa – Aramsa Garden Spa. Other amenities include a dog run, a playground and water park. Occasionally, there will be star-gazing sessions held by Singapore Sidewalk Astronomy, at the area near McDonald's.
