Bedok Reservoir Park : A Beautiful Walk

Previously I wrote about walking from East Coast Park to Bedok PCN. I stopped at the Bedok Canal next to Summer Gardens at Upper Changi Road. I came back another day to start a walk from Bedok Canal to Bedok Reservoir Park and a nice walk inside of Bedok Reservoir Park.

The blog post is here.

Parking to go to Bedok PCN

I skip a short part of Bedok PCN along the Bedok Canal and parked at Upper Changi Road.

If you arrive early enough, there should some nice parking lots next to the shop houses. You can then come back to this place for FOOD 🙂

Walking along Bedok PCN To Bedok Reservoir Park

After you parked, it is a short walk to the Bedok PCN along the Bedok Canal.

Right up to the end of this walk is a road where you can see the new Bedok Food Factory. At the time of writing, there are some small construction work but you can easily bypass that.

And continue our way to Bedok Reservoir Park

When you reach the end, you can then reach a bridge. This bridge brings you ACROSS the PIE at Bedok area.

Lots of construction, which is sad as we lose more and more spaces…

Bedok Reservoir Park

Bedok Reservoir Park has a surface area of 880,000 m², and a capacity of 12.8 million m³. The mean depth of the reservoir is 9 m, with a maximum depth of 18.2 m. The perimeter is 4.3 km.

The most important information (unless you want to jump into the reservoir) is that the perimeter is about 4.3km. Enough for a nice run (or a walk for older fat men like me).

We are going to take a walk AROUND THE WHOLE perimeter of the Bedok Reservoir.

And there is now a floating solar panel farm at the Bedok Reservoir. We cannot even leave a reservoir alone. Really is economic growth at all costs. Population Growth at all costs.
