The only natural hot spring on Singapore’s mainland has been closed for redevelopment works since August 2018, but we’ve only got a few months to go before the place reopens with a fresh new look.
Sembawang Hot Spring Park’s actual construction will be completed in October, but seeing as how it’ll take a couple months to finish paving the roads leading to the park, it’ll only officially open in January 2020, the National Parks Board (NParks) told The Straits Times last Friday.
It was back in 2017 that NParks revealed its plans to develop the hot spring into a park with features like a floral walk, a cascading pool, and a cafe that blends in with its surrounding greenery. Other amenities that will be part of the expanded space include sheltered areas for seats, bicycle racks, a pail storage area, and toilets.
Looks like Sembawang Hot Spring Park could become an even more popular attraction beyond its original appeal to nature explorers come 2020.
