The National Parks Board (NParks) has commenced works on the new Bukit Gombak Park. Located at Bukit Batok Batok West Avenue 5, opposite Bukit Batok Driving Centre, the 4.8 ha park will feature a hill trek, a nature playgarden and other recreational facilities amidst nature and lush greenery to serve the different needs of residents. The park is scheduled to be opened in early 2020.
In planning for the new park, NParks engaged residents to gather feedback on features they would like to have in the park. In response to the feedback received, the new park will feature a Nature Area and an Active Area to meet the diverse recreational needs of the community.
Located on a hill, the Nature Area will allow park goers to appreciate nature up close. The main feature of this area is an inclined looped 400m hill trek modelled after the trails in Bukit Timah. Besides alleviating visitorship pressure on the nearby Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, the hill trek will help residents to stay healthy in nature.
NParks, together with the community, will be planting more than 2000 trees comprising some 16 species of trees, such as the critically endangered Yellow Flame (Peltophorum pterocarpum), and others like Belinjau (Gnetum gnemon) and Pink Mempat (Cratoxylum formosum) trees.
The Active Area will feature an open lawn for events, an outdoor fitness area, a community garden, a F&B outlet and public toilets. The existing basketball court next to Block 394 will also be incorporated as part of the park.
Other features at the Bukit Gombak Park will include a biophilic playgarden which will encourage children to play amid nature. A slide will be integrated into the natural sloped terrain and there will be nature-inspired play equipment, such as balancing beams set amongst trees and shrubs.
The park will also include a 480 sqm dog run, the first in the Bukit Gombak area. It will be sited on a flat terrain for dogs to run without leash, with benches for dog owners to rest.
As part of efforts to cater to the growing needs of residents and towns, the upgraded Choa Chu Kang Sport Centre will be ready in phases from 2020.
The centre will include a renovated swimming complex with water slides, a sheltered training pool and new water play equipment. Plus it will also be home to a bigger gym and dance studio, an air-conditioned sports hall, and a new active health lab by 2021.
This year, Singaporeans can also look forward to the opening of 52 new indoor school sports halls, 32 new free-to-play school fields as well as two new play fields in Jurong Lake Gardens and Yan Kit.
Come 2020, HomeTeamNS members will be able to enjoy a 2,800 sqm indoor adventure hubcomplete with a rope course and fireman slides – among other facilities – when their dazzling new Khatib clubhouse opens.
This was announced recently at the clubhouse’s groundbreaking ceremony. Other features unveiled include
a tactical simulator,
a state-of-the-art 1,500 sqm gym,
along with four man caves as comfortable hangout areas.
The 21,000 sqm five-storey clubhouse (with a one-storey basement) will feature green innovations such as charging stations for electric cars, solar panels and an eco-filtration swimming pool. It will also be equipped with self-service kiosks and “chatbots”, allowing HomeTeamNS members to renew their membership, make payments and book facilities with greater ease. HomeTeamNS is also partnering POSB to pilot cashless transaction solutions, which will be integrated into its new clubhouses.
Located along Yishun Avenue 2, the clubhouse will replace the current facility in Sembawang and is designed to serve about 250,000 Home Team NSmen. It is one of three new clubhouses that will be built as part of a long-term development master plan.
To serve their members and guests even better, SAFRA Mount Faber have announced that they will be upgraded between July 2018 to June 2019 to provide a refreshed experience and more offerings as an executive lifestyle club for NSmen.
The enhancement works will begin later this month and will see the entire club take on a fresh industrial chic look with new facilities and amenities by mid-2019.
Anticipate new dining options, such as a drive-thru Fatburger outlet.
Expect dedicated co-working spaces fully equipped with high-speed wi-fi, video projectors, and other workplace resources. And more but of course!
