East Coast Park

East Coast Park is one of the most popular places for running and biking in Singapore. A paved, flat multi-use path runs from the Marina Bay area near downtown, heading east toward the airport, paralleling the East Coast Parkway, for up to 11.7 km. The east end is at Tanah Merah Beach. There are water views and lush greenery the entire way. Sections pass along a public beach. This is not a remote park. It can crowded. There are numerous recreational activities in the park, plus restrooms, water, and other facilities. Bonus: Much of the path is lit at night. 

Sights along the way include Bedok Jetty/Amber Bacon Tower (2 km), Singapore Wake Park, and the National Service Golf Club at the east end. For a short add-on, take a jaunt out Bedok Jetty (2 km mark). East Coast Park is also home to Parkrun, a free group 5k held every Saturday morning.

Add-On: At the west end, see our Marina East/Gardens By the Bay route.

 

Essentials

you can run West, and the path will take you to the Marina Bay run, meeting it at km 5 (on the long route map). I prefer West to East to turn it into a great tourist run up to the Marina Barrage. From Katong to Marina Barrage and back is 14km. Water bubbler at the desalination plant: look for the toilets. There are more toilets, but no water bubbler at Bay East visitor centre, so the run is possible to do without a running pack, even in the heat.
