Nature Parks in Singapore: Condominiums near 7 Popular Green Spaces to Live in (2021)

·12-min read

Living near a nature park in Singapore can be a gamechanger to how you live. Yeah, we live in a “Garden City” and we’re not deprived of being close to nature. But having a park at your doorstep? That means sunset strolls through greenery after work, weekend picnics with your besties, and a calm place to retreat to whenever you feel stressed from work.

Our observations in our Singapore Consumer Sentiment Study H2 2020 on property buyer behaviour have mostly been accurate. Having to work from home has also affected the way we shop for homes in 2021. More are purchasing bigger spaces and quieter neighbourhoods that are closer to green spaces too.

In this article, we’ve included the following nature parks in Singapore:

  • Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park (Central)

  • MacRitchie Reservoir Park (Central)

  • Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (Central)

  • Jurong Lake Gardens (West)

  • Coney Island Park (North-East)

  • East Coast Park (East)

With the number of condo resale units hitting an 11-year high and more Singapore residents living in a condo now, as compared to a decade ago, we’ve decided to focus on condos in this guide. If you’d like to hop onto the bandwagon and reap the benefits of living near nature, take a look at these condominiums near these 7 parks across the island.

*There are many condos built around these seven nature parks in Singapore. This is not an exhaustive list of condos near major nature parks in Singapore.

Coney Island is a 133-hectare island also known as Pulau Serangoon. There are two entrances to Coney Island, each on either end of the park. With its coastal forests, casuarina woodlands, mangroves and grasslands, the park has a diverse variety of habitats that offer visitors an atypical nature experience in Singapore.

Those who choose to live near Coney Island Park will be familiar with the Punggol Promenade Nature Walk that borders the park. There are nice cafes and bars you can check out.

The up-and-coming Punggol neighbourhood is not as densely packed as other mature estates, and there aren’t HDB BTO flats or condominium developments clustered around Coney Island. So, we chose these properties that are less than 2km from the Punggol Promenade Riverside Walk.

East Coast Park Singapore.

Stretching over 15km, East Coast Park is built on reclaimed land on the southeastern coast. Aside from the usual cyclists and rollerbladers, you can find wakeboarders doing stunts at the Singapore Wake Park right next to the East Coast Lagoon Food Village.

To appeal to the Siglap/Joo Chiat/Katong crowd, several more upscale restaurants like PS.Cafe have set up shop in the park.

View of East Coast Park from the sea with condominiums along the waterfront.

East Coast Park is a hotspot for private property due to the demand for waterfront living. At least a hundred condominiums dot the length of the park. If we listed all those condominiums, your thumbs would be sore before you scrolled through the entire list. But the upside is that there are many affordable condos in the East Coast Park area you can rent for $2,500 or less.

So we narrowed it down to condominiums that are less than 800 metres from the park and built 20 years or less ago. Arranged by year of completion are the following condominiums near East Coast Park, with available units for purchase at the time of writing.
