A Seaside Stroll at Punggol Point Park

Drive all the way to the end of Punggol Road, past where poultry farms used to exist, I am here again, take a short break at my favorite place-Punggol Jetty for an evening walk. 

A seaside stroll down Punggol Point Walk at the Punggol Point Park is always relaxing, I like the panoramic views of Pulau Ubin and the Straits of Johor on an elevated, ship-inspired viewing deck.

Beside Punggol Jetty, the once popular seafood haunt back in the 1980s and 1990s now is an idyllic place with a big lily ponds infront.

Today, this re-developed jetty area is the gateway to the 5 km long Punggol Promenade North-eastern Park Connector network linking us all the way to Sengkang Riverside Park and Hougang Punggol Park.

On the west of the jetty is Punggol Beach. It was here that 400 Chinese civilians were massacred during World War 2 on 28 February 1942. National Heritage Board has marked the area as a national heritage site, with a plaque commemorating and explaining the moment in history.

Ha, as such Punggol Beach is rumoured as another famous haunted place in Singapore.
