Nee Soon is surrounded by nature- reservoirs, parks and even Singapore’s only hot spring. (Map)
Across Singapore, 80% of homes are located within 400m of a park. This will increase to 90% by 2030.
Nee Soon has its share of new parks. Since 2015, the Khatib Bongsu park connector runs along Yishun Ave 2, Khatib MRT station and Sungei Khatib Bongsu. The BTOs in Nee Soon South also enjoy brand-new Rockridge Park, with ample exercise, ball court and BBQ facilities.
Sembawang Hot Spring in Nee Soon South, Singapore’s only hot spring, will also be redeveloped into a public park by 2019. It will remain rustic and free-of-charge, while adding facilities such as a floral walk and a café.
Near Kebun Baru, Thomson Nature Park, a unique park with ruins of an old Hainanese village, will open in 2018 off Upper Thomson Road.

– Abseiling and Canopy Walk at SAFRA Yishun
