Punggol Promenade Riverside Walk

We took a walk down Punggol Promenade on Saturday evening. Surprisingly, it was the husband who suggested the trip. He’s happiest vegetating in front of the telly at home and usually has to be dragged around by me so it was nice that he initiated an outing for a change!

Our little excursion didn’t start out so well. The carpark is small and difficult to get around in and there were quite a few smokers standing around. But once we made it to the riverside walk, things got better. It is a beautiful place that is great for cycling and inline skating. It’s just a pity that the rest areas had litter here and there even though there were rubbish bins available.

We walked at a leisurely pace down to the Lorong Halus Bridge and walked across to Lorong Halus Wetland which used to be a landfill site. Along the way, we tried to figure out if this is the area that we used to wakeboard. I also took a lot of photos that I plan to use in my Geography lessons. Adam was asleep the entire time!

Then it was back to our starting point for dinner and some fishing! Anya and Adrian used small paper nets to catch little guppies which they then released back into the water because we didn’t want to bring them home. There were also plenty of people catching prawns and ridiculously huge fishes at Hai Bin. The next time we go to that area, I hope to check out Wild Oats at Punggol Park.
