Yishun Pond Park provides a tranquil spot where visitors can enjoy a bit of respite in the midst of the busy urban neighbourhood.
With vegetated areas planted with shrubs and marshland plants, the park is located along Yishun Central. Here are some sights and things that can be found along the edge of Yishun Pond.
