Since Phase 2 started, many Singaporeans have started exploring the country's nature and hiking trails. If you're a nature lover, we've got a piece of good news! There will be a new nature park that you can look forward to ? Located in the Northwest of Singapore, the Lim Chu Kang Nature Park is scheduled to be ready in 2022 and will join the existing Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve to form the 400-hectare Sungei Buloh Nature Park network.

As part of the Lim Chu Kang Nature Park, you can explore the Lim Chu Kang Mangroves which will be conserved as well as this house on the pier called the Cashin House which was built in the 1920s. Once a residence owned by the Cashin family, this heritage building will be restored. Here, you can look forward to exhibition spaces, a seaview terrace as well as various rustic play spaces.
