New Community Parks
The small community parks are welcoming to visitors and provide spaces for relaxing and activities. All parks are designed differently and respond to specific site conditions and different target groups. Shade creation was one of the priorities for the parks, especially for those parks with few or no existing trees. It is envisaged that NParks at later date will add more low-level planting and features to the parks. The parks seek to be pleasant, functional and beautiful.
- Mar Thoma Park (approx. 0.11 ha) is a small community park for local residents and passing cyclists and pedestrians. Visitors will be limited and they will mainly use it as a resting node.
- Paya Lebar Road Park (approx.. 0.47 ha), is organised around a central oval shape lawn, lined by trees. To the south of the lawn concrete gathering space and shelter complement the central lawn.
- Jalan Kayu Park (approx. 0.32ha), an extension of the current interim park, is a small community park for local residents and visitors of Jalan Kayu.The main users will be local residents from the landed properties cutting through the park from and to Jalan Kayu.
- Faber Walk Extension (0.17ha) is a playful community park providing play and fitness facilities shaded by mature existing trees and colourful new trees.
- Ang Mo Kio Linear Park (6.6ha) consists of two plots - one will be developed with amenities for active parkgoers to enjoy while the second plot will be developed with a quieter and more rustic landscape, for parkgoers to rest and relax.
