Lorong Halus Wetland (from Punggol side)

Punggol Promenade Riverside walk that links to the Lorong Halus Wetland (from Punggol side) was opened with great fanfare on 5th March 2011 by Ms Penny Low (MP of Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC) and graced by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean.

Getting there
From Riviera LRT ( Punggol East Rd), its walking distance towards the Promenade walk along Sungai Serangoon. You can go there in the day or night. I went there at night recently just to check out the place and it is well lighted and the sounds of frogs and nightjars to keep you company !

Crossing the river
There is bridge from the Punggol Promenade side that will bring you across Serangoon River to the "newly minted" Lorong Halus Wetland. The place may not seem much right now, but do remember this is rehabilitated land,  as the place was once a rubbish landfill before and polluted water contaminated most /if not all the ponds there.

In my previous post, i explored from Pasir Ris side and now with the opening of the bridge, it is possible to cross over and end your walk on Punggol side.

While updating my blog post, i discovered another website with a similiar post on lorong halus. What caught my attention was that site STOLE my photos, cropped it and made it their own. No acknowledgement nor permission was sought ! Bad karma for you dude..

Not to sure if anyone of you have similiar experiences as well.

Hey there!

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