Just a 10-minute walk from Choa Chu Kang MRT and Lot One Shoppers’ Mall, Choa Chu Kang Park feels like a little green haven. There is the the Chao Chu Kang Park playground, fitness areas and more.
Choa Chu Kang Park was officially opened on 11 November 2000. A new extension to the park was added in 2014. In 2023, part of the park has also been given over to the new SAFRA Choa Chu Kang club house.

For families with young children, the main draw of Choa Chu Kang Park has to be its playgrounds… oops, playground. Previously, there were four separate children’s playgrounds at Chua Chu Kang Park. However, three of these have made way for new McDonald’s outlet and the SAFRA clubhouse.
At the southern end of Choa Chu Kang Park, closer to Lot One Shoppers’ Mall, is the Choa Chu Kang Park playground.
It features a climbing net pyramid that can spin that older kids will love scrambling up.
Younger ones are not left out either. There are little train and truck structures that they can play with. There are swings, including little bucket seats for young ones, nearby too.
McDonald’s Choa Chu Kang Park
At the northern end of the park, there is a 24-hour McDonald’s outlet with a drive through. The entrance to McDonald’s Choa Chu Kang Park is along Chao Chu Kang Drive.
SAFRA Choa Chu Kang
Just behind the amphitheatre next to McDonald’s Choa Chu Kang is the SAFRA Choa Chu Kang.
The five storey building holds various food and beverage outlets, enrichment centres and facilities.

Choa Chu Kang Park Community Garden
Other facilities around the Chua Chu Kang Park include a community garden that was started in 2014.
Choa Chu Kang Park Therapeutic Garden
For those who wish to simply enjoy the benefits of nature, the Choa Chu Kang Park Therapeutic Garden is a little spot where they can relax with the sound of a water fountain nearby.
Throughout the park, visitors will find fitness and exercise areas.
There is a mini skate plaza at Choa Chu Kang Park. However, we suspect that many skaters would have gravitated towards the large skate park at Jurong Lake Gardens.
Stagmont Park Connector
At the northern end of the park, behind the SAFRA Clubhouse, there is the Stagmont Park Connector. This runs alongside the Kranji Expressway, providing a connection from Choa Chu Kang Park to the northern stretch of the Rail Corridor.
Using the Stagmont Park Connector, you can reach Villa Verde Park and its new extension which has a nature playgarden.

Here’s a look at Choa Chu Kang Park’s playground before the SAFRA clubhouse was built. These pictures are from Little Day Out’s archives.
At the end of the park closest to the Kranji Expressway, there were three playgrounds, one tailored for toddlers and two for older children.
The toddler playground was a brown-and-green structure with slides coming off the second level. Little rocking seats and a musical play wall catered to very young children.
Older kids got play equipment set in a sand pit with palm tree bursting at the top. Bright orange bars challenged them to cross from one end of the playground structure to the other.
Another set of play equipment near was made from tubular frames. The key attraction is the fun disc swing where kids can swing to their hearts’ content.
The park also had a restaurant, the Rasa Istimewa C2k Restaurant. This was a sister restaurant of the one found at the Woodlands Waterfront Jetty. It served halal zichar food, seafood, satay and desserts.
