Coney Island set to become S'pore's 9th nature park

SINGAPORE: Nature lovers can soon look forward to a new nature park on Coney Island, off Punggol. It will be the ninth nature park in Singapore. The park will be ready in two years, and is part of the government's plans to build 20 new parks over the next five years in the Northern, Eastern and Western parts of Singapore. Coney Island is connected to Punggol Promenade by a bridge, but it is not open to the public yet. The National Parks Board said it will preserve the island's wildlife and rustic nature during the development, to give the park a natural feel. The park, which is the size of about 30 football fields, will take up half the island's space. There are plans to develop the rest of the island for recreational and residential uses.
