Marsiling Park and Pond

The community park is dominated a large pond and known for its trademark Chinese pavilions. These pavilions serve as rest stops for park visitors and complement the traditional-looking stone bridge that divides the pond in half.

A View of Nature

Mangrove Zone, Marsiling Park

On the western side of Marsiling Park, visitors get a view of a complete mangrove ecosystem. Along this stretch of the park, information panels explain about the different zone found within a mangrove forest ecosystem. These zones include a brackish water environment to a transition zone to the freshwater area.

Boardwalks at Marsiling Park

Visitors who wish to get even closer to the water can head to the boardwalks that flirt around Marsiling Park’s pond. In addition to providing a close-up view of flora and fauna around the pond, the boardwalks also provide excellent views of the park’s landscape.

Butterflies in the park

One fauna that is hard to miss at the park is the butterfly. There are plenty of these pretty winged insects fluttering around the park’s bushes and flowers.
