If you enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the sea, the Pasir Ris Park Therapeutic Garden is sure to be a place that you’ll enjoy unwinding at. Spanning 1,600 square meters, the Pasir Ris Park Therapeutic Garden is located just 67 metres from the sea. This also makes it the first therapeutic garden that offers a sea view.
The Therapeutic Garden comprises a few notable features such as a Viewing Garden, Planter Garden, Fitness Area and Shelter. As the space uses nature-related activities to improve physical and mental well-being, there are many green spaces for visitors to enjoy.
The Viewing Garden at Pasir Ris Park Therapeutic Garden
The Viewing Garden is the main highlight as it is the spot where visitors will be able to get a sea view and also try to spot some of Singapore’s “kelongs”, a structure which is built out at sea, mainly from wood. There are many wooden benches, each giving a unique perspective of the sea.
There is also a green feature in the middle which upon closer inspection is the Labyrinth Lawn. Those who get a birds-eye view can see the maze-like structure.
Fitness Area at Pasir Ris Park Therapeutic Garden
There is also a Fitness area that incorporates play elements and exercise equipment such as a balance beam, a xylophone and a slider. The equipment caters to children as well as seniors, making it a space that encourages physical movement in a non-stressful environment.
