Singapore may be a little red dot, and we may complain of boredom every now and then, but it does not have to be that way! With a waggly-tailed doggy in tow, any place can be a fun-filled playground.
Nonetheless, if you find yourself running out of ideas, here are some picturesque locations around the island that you can take your dog to; we hope you have not exhausted the list!The Green Corridor
If you took your dog out for a walk but you did not Instagram it, did it even happen?
Take Fido to The Green Corridor — an Instagram-worthy, 3km-long route with defunct railway tracks and lush greenery. The rustic environment will definitely add a twist to your usual dog walk if you are getting bored of it. A little word of caution, though, the pebbled ground with rusted steel tracks may add to the site’s aesthetic, but they are things you should be mindful about. Put on your best running shoes for extra comfort, and look out for any signs of discomfort from your pet!Dairy Farm Nature Park
Another secluded, forested area — if you and doggy are into that — is the Dairy Farm Nature Park. It offers a mix of forest and road trails, however, dogs (on leashes) are only allowed on the latter. Your best bet would be the 3km-long road near The Rail Mall, which leads to the Singapore Quarry Wetland. Nothing like a photogenic view of the vertical cliff walls and deep lake after a long walk with your pooch!
Even though the surrounding trees provide shade to hikers on a hot day, do remember to bring your own water bottle to keep yourself and your little one hydrated.Coney Island
Now on to something for those living in the East side of Singapore!
Walking into Coney Island is like stepping into another realm; the sunlight sifting through the gaps between the skinny, tall trees and the tranquility of the place is a breath of fresh air from the usual hustle and bustle of the city. There are multiple routes for you and your pup to explore and many beaches to discover, so we are pretty certain that you will keep coming back for more!
The most common way to get to Coney Island is by its West Entrance — look out for Punggol Ranch and then The Punggol Settlement. You will have a bit of a walk from The Punggol Settlement, but there are quite a few dog-friendly eateries there which you should definitely check out! The island is open from 7am to 7pm daily.Punggol Waterway Park
Another scenic spot for a dog walk is Punggol Waterway Park. If you are an early riser, take your fur kid out to view the sunrise — the park has already made it easier for visitors by designating sunrise and sunset viewing sites. While there is not much natural shade from trees (the park is dotted with pavilions for shelter), it does make for a good picnic setting. What’s best? There are four themes within the location to cater to different uses — Green Gallery, Recreation Zone, Heritage Zone, and Nature Cove.
