Pandan Reservoir at the West Region of Singapore

Pandan Reservoir is known as the largest service reservoir in Singapore that is currently managed by the Public Utilities Board of Singapore near Sheng Hong Temple.

It is said that fishing is permitted only at two labeled fishing jetties or small pier. You will only use artificial bait as their officials patrol the fishing areas as they give summons for the people who are fishing using live bait. You can only use Carbon steel micro barb or some barbless hooks. The use of fishing net is not allowed. To maintain its fish stocks, they only require catch and release.

Some fish species that are living in this reservoir are Tilapia, Catfish and Peacock Bass. Feeding them is prohibited.

There are a lot of facilities other than fishing that families and group of friends will enjoy such as a radio-controlled boat deck that comes with shelter, gorgeous lights, and some benches for them to relax as well.

If you like running and you live in The Infiniti or in the upcoming Parc Riviera condominium or somewhere near the Pandan Reservoir like the Orchard Property you will certainly love its running route as it provides serene and quiet environment. Its gravel track is around 6 kilometers loop. The distance of its route is very suitable for a long runs and night runs. You will enjoy the space it provides which is hard to look for in Singapore.

All about the Serangoon MRT Line

An underground interchange station, Serangoon MRT Station (NE12/CC13), along the NEL (North East Line) and CCL (Circle Line) is located at the borderline of Serangoon Central and Upper Paya Lebar subzones. It is constructed along Upper Serangoon Road at the intersection with the Serangoon Central.

It was named after the estate where it is currently located and is thought to be derived from a ranggong bird, an abundant bird in the swamps around Rangon River or for what it’s called today, the Serangoon River. It was also known as the Saranggang Road.

The SCDF (Singapore Civil Defence Force) conducted the second Shelter Open House, Farrer Park, Hougang stations, and Chinatown last Febuary of 2003 before the station began to open.

The station has full-height platform screen doors that separate the air-conditioned station from the tunnel which enhances commuters’ safety and comfort. Located at each platform are the plasma display that is called Passenger Information Systems that provides expected train arrival time and key messages.

All of its platforms are served by escalators, lifts and stairs that connect entrance and linkways above.

This station serves the town centre area in nearby commercial areas, amenities, and plenty of residential developments such as the Nex Shopping Mall, KLC International Institute, and the new Forest Woods condominium as well as Orchard Property which is within the famous Orchard Road.

Bus services in the Serangoon Bus Interchange are also offered to connect to the other parts of the city.
