With gyms closed down due to the tightened COVID-19 measure, it must’ve been frustrating for a lot of us. Whether you are a sports lover or simply someone who takes care of your health, the second Singapore lockdown has taken a toll on us. But fret not, for Singapore has a lot of awesome running tracks throughout the island to let you keep your body fit and strong throughout the lockdown
This week, we will feature two running routes that you can consider for your next running session!
Located in the northern part of Singapore, this park is easily accessible by CTE and Upper Thomson Road. The route stretches for ~10km, and average joggers will take about 1 hour to complete the route.
Also a great area of residence, located beside the park is a condominium, Clover by the Park. It is a 99-year leasehold development completed in 2012, standing tall within Bishan neighbourhood. This property has facilities that families will love—two swimming pools, a tennis court, and a basketball court. It is also highly convenient with supermarkets and hawker centres within proximity.
Standing on 236,000 sqft land, there are a total of 616 units in the two residential towers. The units range in size, from 1216 sqft to 1916 sqft, and are mainly 3-5 bedroom apartments. Recent transactions range from approximately S$1,131 to $1,444 psf and the recently transacted units are within S$2.2 million.
Clover by the Park gives you the perks to live in a strategic neighbourhood in the heart of the city. Convenient shopping malls, many dining options, and walking distance to Bishan MRT station and Bishan Bus Interchange, along with a beautiful park to exercise and bring your whole family for the weekend; you can have it all in Clover by the Park.
A popular nature track among locals and tourists, you can also consider running in the MacRitchie Reservoir Park. For most of us growing up in Singapore, we would have remembered our cross-country competition when somebody mentions “MacRitchie Reservoir”
An exciting project is now under development to replace the former Caldecott Broadcast Centre in Andrew Road a few minutes from MacRitchie Reservoir. The site was bought by Perennial Holdings at the end of 2020, and is now in the pre-development stage, expected to launch in 2022-2023. Referring to the approval outline by the Urban Redevelopment Authority, the site is to be built in the Caldecott Hill Good Class Bungalow Area with permissions for two-storey 800-sqm bungalows.
