A joint development between the Housing & Development Board (HDB) of Singapore, and the National Parks Board of Singapore, the Punggol Waterway Park is an intiative to turn this area of Punggol into a waterfront town. Spanning about 12.25 hectares (122,500 square meters), Punggol Waterway Park features an 8.4 kilometers waterway running through it, the longest man-made waterway in Singapore.

Punggol Waterway Park is segmented into 4 themed zones; Nature Cove, Recreation Zone, Heritage Zone, and Green Gallery. Housing estates, a planned future mall, and future town centre, also front the waterway. The Nature Cove and Recreation Zone are located in the main area of Punggol Waterway Park. The Nature Cove offers scenic views of the waterfront, and several activity lawns for leisure.

The Recreation Zone has the most activities for families, including the Fitness Corner, Water Play Area, Sand Pit Area, the Watersports Promenade, and the Adventure Bridge, 1 of 5 pedestrian bridges spanning Punggol Waterway Park. The Heritage Zone lies at the other end of the main area of Punggol Waterway Park, and features a scenic Boardwalk, a Riverside Pavilion, and the Kelong Bridge. The Old Punggol Heritage Walk here has preserved a stretch of the original Punggol road and bus stop. Look out for The Instagram Tree, a popular wedding photography spot, which features a lone, semi-bald tree on a hill.

The Green Gallery encompasses the remainder of Punggol Waterway Park. At the eastern end, the Sunrise Bridge in the Sunrise Gateway area is a great place to catch the sunrise, as well as local wildlife like otters. Also located here are the unremarkable Wave Bridge, and the Lorong Halus Wetlands & Bridge. At the western end of Punggol Waterway Park, the Sunset Strip area features a Waterfront Mural Wall, with history, background, and information about local flora and fauna of Punggol. Along the path here is the quirky Accident Mural, featuring robots saying each line. The Jewel Bridge at the end of the path is the best place to catch the sunset.

If you're planning a visit, do note that while admission is free, the best time to visit is either early in the morning before sunrise, or just before sunset, and allocate between 1 - 4 hours for viewing. Either wear a good pair of walking shoes and bring lots of water, or do what most locals here do, and rent a bicycle.
