Coney Island and Punggol

About Coney Island

Besides being rich in history, Coney Island Park houses a vast variety of habitats, such as coastal forests, grasslands, mangroves, and casuarina woodlands. It’s home to a vast array of fauna and flora, some of which are critically endangered. Some crops in the playground are presumed nationally extinct in the wild.

Consider spotting among 80 species of birds on Coney Island Park, including the resident male Baya Weavers weaving their vast and elaborate nests from flowering Acacia trees. Hear the Oriental Magpie-robin’s songs from the forest, or follow the flocks of parakeets flying throughout the forest canopies. The different habitats at the park allow for a high diversity in bird species, so creating the park a perfect place for birdwatching. Using its rich biodiversity in a rustic setting, Coney Island Park offers much to research for bird and nature enthusiasts.

The rustic Coney Island Park is an ecologically sustainable park that has many environmental initiatives. It concentrates on conserving electricity and water, recycling and keeping of the natural components in the playground. The timber out of uprooted Casuarina trees has been collected and recycled to park signage, chairs, benches, boardwalk, and displays at Casuarina Exploration.

Start exploring the forest and mangrove habitats on the newly developed boardwalk and continue to the shore that may be accessed at five locations. You may also ride throughout the island along the 2.5 km Coney Island Park Connector, taking in the beautiful promenade view of this Serangoon Reservoir.

1. Embark on a photoshoot quest 

Photoshoots can be fun if you take your time. With an abundance of wildlife such as the migratory birds, as well as exciting flora, you can spend hours not only getting in touch with nature but capturing the wildlife that resides around that area. Watch out for the photogenic otters too! 

2. Go glamping in the woods

Glamping is a portmanteau of “glamorous” and “camping”, and describes a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style services not usually associated with “traditional” camping. In short, glamping is where stunning nature meets modern luxury, or as close as you can get to it anyway. Pitch a tent in the shade, ideally with a great view of the sea or the Punggol waterbody, and then spend some quality time with your friends. Who says you can’t find your personal space in Singapore? 

3. Cycle along the trails

If you prefer things to move a little faster, bring along your trusty bicycle. Many trails are leading in and out of Coney Island, and if you get bored with the area, you can even cycle to other parts of Singapore via the park connector. Cycling allows you to cover a more considerable distance over a shorter period, and also enjoy the sultry warm breeze. Bring your own or rent a bicycle from Punggol Point Park.

4. Go birdwatching 

Coney Island Park may be a haven for birdwatching enthusiasts because there are about 80 species of birds on the island. There are more than 200 species of birds in another nature destination, Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. There’s the black-crowned night heron and seen wood owl, which is nationwide critically endangered. The red junglefowl, changeable hawk-eagle and Red-wattled lapwing are nationally endangered, and the grey heron and rusty-breasted cuckoo are nationwide vulnerable.

5. Have a romantic escapade

There’s nothing nicer than to have some private peace and quiet with your loved one. Go early in the morning and enjoy a quiet and tranquil stroll along the woods before arriving at the waterfront. You can get in touch with nature, and talk about how to build a future together (or if you prefer to avoid that, you can talk about the monkeys – see next paragraph). Better still, surprise your partner with some colourful balloons and then adjourn for a nice meal at the nearby Punggol Settlement area.

6. Discover the only commonly seen species of monkeys in Singapore

The long-tailed macaque is the only commonly seen species of monkey in Singapore. Its population numbers some 1,500 individuals. Most dwell in and on the fringes of our rainforest nature reserves in the Bukit Timah and the Central Catchment Nature Reserves. They also occupy parks such as Bukit Batok Nature Park, Yishun Park and Admiralty Park, as well as Sisters Islands and Pulau Ubin.

Research findings have shown that the long-tailed macaque in Singapore is a unique population. It has a smaller size, different facial features and a larger tail-body ratio than others found in the neighbouring regions: southern Indochina, Burma, western Indonesia (Sumatra, Java and Borneo), the Philippines and the Nicobar Islands.

7. Get to the waters 

Promenades can be found at the western and eastern ends of the island. These paved areas provide a spot to enjoy the views of passing ships and Johor’s shoreline without having to venture too far into the island. At the West Promenade, the curious can venture down some steps for a closer look at the water’s edge.

How to get to Coney Island

  • Car: Drive down to Punggol Settlement, and either park your car there, or outside Coney Island’s exits in the West and East entrance.
  • Public transport: Take the train down to Punggol and then head to the bus interchange. Get on bus 84 and alight at Punggol Road End. Walk over to Punggol Settlement, and follow the signs towards Coney Island.
