With 220ha of land and 70ha of water, Lakeside provides opportunities for recreational uses and new attractions, especially for families with young children. This focus will differentiate Lakeside from Singapore’s other three tourism clusters (Marina Bay, Southern Waterfront and Mandai).
Residents and visitors can look forward to new parks, improved promenades, more water activities and numerous attractions blended with the scenic lakeside setting in the coming years.

The new 60ha Jurong Lake Park will be a gem of Jurong Lake District when it is tentatively expected to be completed in 2016. The presence of the lake lends itself for a unique play experience such as a sprawling adventure playground connected by different islands, each filled with innovative play equipment installed within a natural setting. You can also enjoy the breathtaking scenery of Jurong Lake as you stroll, jog or cycle along the waterfront.
Come Close to the Waters

Residents staying near Jurong Lake can already enjoy recreation features on the western and northern banks of the lake such as a boardwalk and fishing deck, floating wetlands, as well as a 20-metre-high fountain. More exciting features are being planned around the lake in the near future to further enhance the water body and the water frontage.
New Edutainment Pursuits
Get set for more exciting family-friendly attractions and recreation amenities around the lake to complement the existing attractions such as the Singapore Science Centre, the Olympic-sized ice-skating rink in JCube mall, and Westgate Wonderland, the largest rooftop mall playground in Singapore.
Walk or Cycle to Jurong Gateway
More connections such as cycling paths/park connectors will be introduced within the Lakeside precinct, so that residents can enjoy better and more direct access to Jurong Gateway and vice versa.
Linked by MRT
Getting here by public transport will be hassle-free, as the Chinese Garden and Lakeside MRT stations are just a stone’s throw away.
