The East Coast Park is a beach park stretching from Marina East to Bedok planning areas in the southeastern coast of Singapore. It was opened in the 1970s, when the government completed reclaiming land off the coast at Katong which extends from Changi to Kallang. It also serves various neighborhood communities such as Kallang and Marine Parade.
The 185 hectare East Coast Park is the largest park in Singapore and is built entirely on reclaimed land with a man-made beach, where swimming is possible. The beach is protected by breakwaters. The park is a popular place for people to relax and unwind. The park has barbecue pits, chalets, food centres and amenities for various sports activities. Visitors can fish at Bedok Jetty (Area F). A cycling and inline skating track runs along the perimeter of the park, which measures over 15 km long. It is connected to Changi Beach Park by the Coastal Park Connector Network, an 8 km park connector running along Changi Coast Road. Overnight camping is permitted in East Coast Park, at Areas D and G. A Camping Permit is required and can be obtained from the National Parks website.
