Lorong Halus Wetland

Singapore has a new nature playground. The Lorong Halus Wetland between Pasir Ris and Ponggol. The Wetland is build on landfill from trash but looking at it, one can never talk. It looks so clean and green. And apparently there are birds galore. More about the Lorong Halus Wetland here.

Using an innovative bio-remediation system, the PUB has designed the Lorong Halus Wetland to collect and treat water passing through the former landfill, preventing it from flowing into Serangoon River. The various reed and ponds traps and filter the 'dirty' stuff and prevent them from floating into the river which has become a reservoir.

  1. Hey there!

    I was wondering, can I get from Lorong Halus Wetland over to Pasir Ris Park now? Is the connector completed?


  2. Hi Brandon,

    You have to use Pasir Ris Farmway and go out to Pasir Ris Drive 3 to reach Pasir Ris Park.

  3. Hi, thanks for the pictures. Do you know if we can now get from the Halus Wetlands to Punggol point, without going into the main roads traffic (by bike of course).

  4. Hi anonymous.
    At the moment, the park connector at Punggol side is still not fully completed but once this is done, one should be able to walk, run or cycle there from Halus without going onto the main road.

  5. Try this facebook blog for map and route :-
