With a total land size of 185-hectares, and a scenic coastline that stretches over 15 km, East Coast Park (东海岸公园) is one of Singapore's most treasured urban getaways.

East Coast park offers an exciting diversity of sporting, dinning and recreational activities catering to various segments of the public. Bowling alleys, volleyball courts, cycling, in-line skating (you may hire a bicycle or pair of rollerblades), water sporting activities, fishing jetty, camp sites and holiday chalets can all be found in this park. In the evenings, bring your families and friends down for a barbecue or indulge in sumptuous cuisines at the East Coast Seafood Centre.

For Camping Permit and BBQ Pit Booking, do it at NParks website.

East Coast Park was opened in the 1970s, when the government completed reclaiming land off the coast at Katong which extends from Changi to Tanjong Rhu.

Before the Bedok Jetty opened its doors to the public, it was used exclusively by the Singapore Ministry of Defence ("MINDEF") as a base for their regular military exercises. Bedok Jetty, near Area F, was also used occasionally for humanitarian missions. One such example was the "Operation Thunderstorm" set up in 1975 to handle the influx of refugees arriving in Singapore following the unconditional surrender of Saigon to the North Vietnamese forces. It is the longest fishing jetty you'll find in Singapore, and probably the most popular one as well.

There is no tour here. You may want to visit Katong Park.
