About
The east coast of Singapore is a strip of reclaimed land that stretches all the way from Fort Road to Changi Airport. Today it has become one of Singapore 's most popular recreational spots. Every weekend, thousands of Singaporeans head to East Coast Park to cycle, rollerblade, have picnics or do water sports. Others go there for seafood or do have a relaxing drink by the beach. A permanent fixture on the coast is the fishing community, who finds the waters of the east coast abundant with fish.

History
What we now identify as East Coast Park was an indistinguishable part of the South China Sea up till twenty years ago. In these twenty years, the area has gone through considerable development, Marine Cove being the latest installation to the park.

Recreation

    • Cycling and Rollerblading
      All along East Coast Park, you see stands renting bicycles and rollerblades. Each shop caters to your preferences and offers mountain bikes, tandem bikes and practically any other type of bicycle you may wish for. The rollerblades, too, come with safety pads and helmets to make you feel secure. Each shop provides you with a locker in which you can store your belongings while you exercise.
    • Water Sports
      You can engage in water sports at the more remote areas of East Coast. The Kallang River area of East Coast is where dragon-boating, wakeboarding and water-skiing practice sessions and competitions are often held. As you progress eastward from Kallang River, you see small shops where you can rent canoes and kayaks. Even further east are the Sea Sports Centre, the PA East Coast Sea Sports Club and the National Sailing Centre. Here, you can go sailing, windsurfing and other sports in the open sea.
    • Food and Drink
      There are plenty of places to eat, drink and be merry. An area dedicated for this purpose is Marine Cove, where you find a maze of restaurants, cafes and pubs. All the pubs are located on the beachfront, such as Scruffy Murphy's Irish Pub. Next to Marine Cove are bowling alleys and tennis courts. Further down, there are a row of seafood restaurants, and the recently-renovated Lagoon Food Centre.
  • Recreation and Entertainment
    East Coast Park is littered with barbeque pits and is a popular place for gatherings. Also, you can rent a chalet in East Coast at Costa Sands Resort, where you can relax in old, two-storeyed brick houses by the sea. At Marine Cove in east coast, there are live bands performing frequently.
