Alexandra Canal Water Play Area
At the eastern end of the Alexandra Park Connector is what is known as the Alexandra Canal Water Play Area. Don’t expect a water playground or anything like that. The Alexandra Canal Water Play Area is very much a pond nowadays.
It is connected to a park area which is landscaped to look like a wetlands. There are also boardwalks and areas to sit down to enjoy the outdoors.
To the west of the Alexandra Canal Water Play Area is the Alexandra Canal Linear Park.
Along the Alexandra Park Connector
Heading westward from the Alexandra Canal Water Play Area, past Prince Charles Crescent, the Alexandra Park Connector follows the course of the Alexandra Canal. It leads past various condominiums before winding up at Delta Road.
Across Delta Road is Valley Point. Did you know that there was once a prisoner of war camp where Valley Point now stands?
Further along the Alexandra Park Connector towards Zion Road, there is the Zion Riverside Food Centre, famous for its char kway teow. This is just across the road from Great World City.
If you keep going eastward from Zion Road, the Alexandra Canal gets redesignated as the Singapore River and that winds its way down to Marina Bay.
