Pawrents and pups, have you heard? A new park is coming to town – Bukit Gombak Park! The 4.8-hectare park will be located opposite the Bukit Batok Driving Centre and will be connected to both Bukit Batok Town Park and Bukit Batok Nature Park via the Chua Chu Kang Park Connector.
Apart from extending the outdoors for your fur-kid and you, the new Bukit Gombak Park will also come with the estate’s first dog run! The dog run is said to be cover about 480 sqm of flat terrain and will include benches for the humans. Now, your canine and you can feel the wind against your face close to home!
However, with the Bukit Gombak Park scheduled to open only in early 2020, here are 5 other dog runs around the island for your canine and you to visit in the meantime.
