Pasir Ris Park


Pasir Ris Park is a coastal park situated just 20 mins away from Pasir Ris Central. It has a wide range of different landscape from spontaneous vegetation to manicured parkland to mangroves. 

It also boosts an interesting array of biodiversity which I hope to get a glimpse on my future visits.

It also boosts a wonderfully planted garden which attracts lots of birds and butterflies.

The park's kitchen garden has an interesting mix of shrubs and herbs planted which offered me a wonderful experience to observe many butterflies feeding and puddling. It was an amazing experience to see so many butterflies at one place, truly worth a visit :)
