More open spaces and new amenities slated for East Coast Park

These enhancements will be available when work at Parkland Green and Marine Cove is completed.

SINGAPORE: East Coast Park visitors can look forward to more open spaces, new family-friendly amenities, and a range of recreational options when work at Parkland Green and Marine Cove are completed.

The enhancements by National Parks Board (NParks) include a reduction in infrastructure footprint so as to allow for more open green spaces.

Parkland Green will open in September, while improvements at Marina Cove are slated to be completed in mid-2016.

Once open, Parkland Green will feature a 1-hectare open lawn, as well as eight dining establishments. There will also be a laser tag arena and two sports and retail outlets.

When Marina Cove is completed in mid-2016, its open park space and mix of dining and recreational facilities will complement those at Parkland Green.

The enhancements are part of NParks’ efforts to make Singapore a City in a Garden.

While improvements are going on, park users can still use the dining and other recreational activities in the area.
