Love the greenery and the sea view
Feb 2021
It was sometime back in 2015 when I last visited this park. 5 years later, it seems the park has not changed much. The only change is that we are now in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic and I had to put on my face mask as I roamed around and kept a safe distancing with the rest of the visitors.

We have obtained prior approval with NParks for our brisk walk and we are allowed to come with 40 residents. We had our warm up exercises at the open space near the car park keeping a 2 m safe distance from one another while stretching our limbs before embarking on the walk.

The 40 of us were divided into 5 groups of 8 each led by a group leader. The group leaders kept urging participants to maintain a safe distance from one another and avoid getting too `intimate'. We made a big loop around the park ending at the jetty. We enjoyed the calm and relaxing sea view overlooking Johor.

I noticed few groups of visitors laying their groundsheets enjoying their family picnic. The pandemic restricted many of us from traveling and we longed to enjoy our times with our loved ones in nature and in the greenery of the parks and able to breathe in the fresh air.

One of my Indian residents draw my attention to a cannon ball tree beside the Beaulieu House. The beautiful radiantly bold orange flowers grew from tentacled branches that spiraled out of the trunk of the unique tree. Indian devotees would offer these lovely flowers to Lord Shiva during prayers. This is the first time I saw such a blossomly beautiful holy tree at a park.

I was also impressed with the Victorian architectural Beaulieu House which was very well maintained. I understand that the current tenant spent about $30k every year to renovate this restaurant. With the current pandemic, the restaurant must be hard hit in her business with less tourists coming and less functions to organize.

As I walked down the staircase to the jetty, I can feel a strong sea breeze caressing my face. Just hope that the pandemic will be over soon so that we can regain our normal life.

Northern park, relative peace and quiet
Dec 2020
Sembawang Park is tucked away on the northern perimeter of Singapore. Approaching the park on foot is probably one of the more attractive ways to arrive, although is it a rather long way ..Stretches of grassy knolls and some lovely rain trees, the park features Beaulieu House (a colonial style hosue) and the Sembawang jetty overlooking Johor. A rather non-descript beach lines the straits, and Sembawang shipyard lurks on the western shores. Quieter than many other parks in Singapore, a good place to get away from the madding crowds.

Nice for kids to run around
Dec 2020 • Family
Sembawang Park is a small park facing JB, and next to the dry dock in Sembawang. It doesn't look great at the jetty area there although still full of people.
There is a restaurant in a historical building near the sea side which is a beautiful building.

However, the inner part of the park is great with a big piece of grass for people to outing. It's a nice park as long as you drive as it's a bit far from the MRT station.

Land of the eagles

Sembawang Park is one of those places you would not have been on your wish list.
However, if you make plans for a Beauliue House dinner after a leisure afternoon stroll you maybe in for a surprise.
If you like to watch eagles soar through the evening sky, this is the ideal spot.
For whatever reason woodpecker where latch onto car window instead of trees.

Northernmost Tip of Singapore

A quiet park to relax. Walk to the fishing jetty and the beach to see Malaysia from the northernmost tip of Singapore. There is also a nice looking colonial house by the sea.

Used to be Quiet Park
Jun 2019
Used to be a quiet park for residents living around Sembawang, but with th development of Yishun and Sembawang New Towns, it get crowded over the weekends or holiday.

It had only a small stretch of beach, clean but sometimes subject to float-sam rubbish from either Malaysia or Singapore herself.

The park itself is huge, but mostly people gather around the beach area and the pier.

There is a colonial building housing a restaurant.

Nice place to walk around on a Sunday morning.

Morning Walk Down Memory Lane
Jun 2019 • Friends
Located at the Northern End of Singapore is Sembawang Park. A serene and quiet place to take away the stresses of life. There is an added attraction of visiting the old colonial houses with splendid visuals of black and white where once the British Navy stayed.

A rare sight on a hidden corner of Singapore where one gets to see tall buildings and public housings.

Nice scenery and atmosphere
May 2019 • Couples
We went here on 18th May 2019 by bus. It was a long ride from Bugis to Sembawang, but we wanted to explore the city, so that's why we took bus instead of MRT.

To get here, take MRT to Sembawang station, or take bus to Sembawang Interchange. From Sembawang IC, take bus no. 882 which will take you directly to Sembawang Park.

The park was quiet and serene, good for those who are bored with the hustle bustle of downtown. The direct view to Johor Straits and Malaysia add plus points to this park.

Not only it's perfect for picnic, but also great for sunbathing.
