East Coast Park to Bedok PCN

Bedok PCN

A while back, I wrote about my walk from East Coast Park to Siglap PCN. Today I wanted to share a walk I took from East Coast Park to Bedok PCN.

Read about my East Coast Park walk to Siglap PCN then to Kallang here…

Starting at East Coast Carpark C

I started at East Coast Park Car Park C near to the Raintree Cove.

Area C of East Coat Park

The map I am using is attached here in the NParks web site.

Here’s the route I took in RED ink:

At the start of my walk, there is a nice “Siglap Canal” as per this photo

Which is this nice new lawn and lookout deck. A good start to the walk as you looked at the sun rise πŸ™‚

Carry on your walk and you will walk past the new Cyclist Park.

Reaching Bedok PCN through the Underpass

To reach Bedok PCN from East Coast Park, you need to take one of the few underpass which takes you UNDER the East Coast Expressway over to the other side of the road.

In this case, we want to walk to the PA Passion Vale near to Carpark G

And then the East Coast branch of Outward Bound School (really ?)…

Once you cross over from the underpass, you are at the start of the Bedok Park Connector (PCN).

Wow.. 6km to Bedok Reservoir park ! I cannot do that today πŸ™‚

And lots of constructions due to the upcoming East Coast MRT line…

From here, you will need to cross the private housing estate to reach this “Eastwood Park Playground”

Bedok Canal but under construction

You want to do that as you want to reach the Bedok Canal.

Which, unfortunately at the time of my walk, was still under construction…

You can imagine how nice it will be when it is done !!

As you walk to the main road, you can see the construction…..

At this point, I was pretty tired and I can see that by crossing the main road, you can carry on the walk along the Bedok PCN to Simpang Bedok and after that to Bedok Reservoir.

But I choose to stop here πŸ™‚

So near, yet so far

The PCN is right next to this Bedok Canal…
