Located at the town’s northern end is Yishun Neighbourhood Park, a hill where a climb is a rewarded with a tranquil open space and where families will also be able to find a hilltop playground.
Yishun Neighbourhood Park is bounded by Yishun Avenues 7 and 2, and Yishun Streets 20 and 22. It has paths leading up to its summit from Streets 20 and 22 and the junction of Avenue 2 and 7.
This hill was once part of an old rubber estate. Instead of rubber trees, nowadays, you will find beautiful plants, shrubs and other trees on the hill.
Yishun Neighbourhood Park Playground
At the top of hill is the Yishun Neighbourhood Park playground.
The main play structure at the sandy playground is a green, yellow and red tower which kids can climb up; just in case they haven’t expended enough energy getting to the top of the hill.
Other play elements at the Yishun Neighbourhood Park playground include a see-saw, teeter-totter and a pair of swings. One of the swings is bucket seat for younger children.
Close to the children’s playground is a “playground” for adults. This is the Gym Pod, a space at the park which can be booked for a workout.
The top of this hill also hosts an allotment garden where community gardeners can put their green fingers to work.
A feature of Yishun Neighbourhood Park is that its summit is an open ground. This makes it a good spot for tossing a frisbee or laying out a picnic mat.
