Hike to Woodlands TownPark East

 Welcome to Woodlands Town Park East. This Park was featured in a documentary on CNA. Prior to this I did not know of this place. The hiking group I was with decided to pay this park a visit.

We met at Marsiling Station and from here we started our hike with great anticipation. However, our spirits were dampened as there was a heavy downpour in our unpredictable local weather. So we adjunct to a nearby coffee-shop for a cuppa to wait out the rain. After about half an hour when the weather seemed to clear, we put on our raincoats and proceeded with the hike. There was still a slight drizzle but the morning was very cooling, perfect for hiking. After a short walk, we reached Woodlands Swimming Complex and Woodlands street 13. Just across the street is a flight of steps leading to the Park.

The Park is on top of a hill, that is the reason for its existence. Though it's not a very long flight, neither is it insignificant. To lead our hiking group, I had to recce how to get here, so I cycled here a few days before to check out the place. I thought it would be a piece of cake to carry my bike up the steps, before I even reached halfway, I was panting like a dog. Decided to abandon the idea and live to fight another day. The icing on the cake was I lost my way and cycled a longer distance back home than planned. With tongue almost hanging to the jaw I finally arrived home. Gobbled up a bottle of 100 plus and fell asleep after washing down my foldable bike....story continues
